    Windows 8 Nvidia : Unable to update driver software


    In an effort to update my driver software for my new laptop running windows 8 I have uninstalled the driver for my Nvidia card, which was not working properly. Before this, and after this I have tried to update it and always got the same response: The best driver software for your device is installed. It gives me that message even when "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" is the driver. I tried downloading driver software from the Nvidia website and it tells me "This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware".

    My card is a Nvidia GeForce GTX 670MX.

    Laptop manufacturers sometimes use custom device IDs for their onboard graphics. Driver installers from nVidia may not recognize them.

    It's best to get the drivers from the laptop manufacturer, if you can. It's particularly important if your laptop uses switchable graphics.
