    Win8 upgrade assistent: NV 7400 GO supported, but NO!


    Hi

    I have an older Dell laptop that was running Vista. It is actually working well for it's purpose. But having seen Win7 much more responsive i decided to buy and try Win8 on this laptop.
    The Windows 8 Upgrade Assistent told me that NVidia 7400 GO was supported, but i had to re-install all my apps. Based on that i decided for a clean install.

    The reality is though that only "Microsoft basic display adapter" is used and only 1024x768 :-(

    No original NVidia drivers have been found for this card.
    The latest driver + inf from laptopvideo2go is also not installable.

    I'm trying both the setup.exe way and the manual driver install from Control Panel.

    Any idea on how i get this working?

    A lot of the older Dell's are not supported for newer Operating Systems (no drivers). I've seen some that were able to find non-Dell drivers that work but its hit or mostly miss. I used to do a lot of support on the Dell users forums and the availability of Dell drivers or incompatibility came up often. Basically, "you are on your own" to try and find drivers that will work with the old hardware.

    Dell tends to use some proprietary/custom OEM hardware (more so on older hardware) and that makes finding support (drivers) that much more of a problem.

    Sorry I can offer more positive help.
