Hi all,

I'm also facing the same problem. I have a Acer Aspire 4750G Notebook and the Graphics Processor is GeForce GT 540M CUDA with 1GB RAM. It was supposed to come with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-Bit) but however since I don't like Windows 7, I downgraded it to Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3 (yes, I know is old).

I downloaded the NVIDIA Driver Version 270.61 from http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/topic/28391-v27061-windows-xp-32bit-nvidia-desktop/ BUT with the INF Modified http://laptopvideo2go.com/infs/270series/27061/nv4_disp.inf since the original INF that came with the driver didn't support GeForce GT 540M.

The installation went smoothly without any errors and I was told to restart the computer which I did. After the reboot is completed, the Device Manager is able to recognize the Graphics Processor as "NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M" BUT there is a problem with the device (as indicated by the yellow exclamation mark next to the device) and the error message is "This device cannot start" and the error code is 10 (See attached Image). I have googled the error and is related to driver not installed correctly.

I would like to know:

1. How can resolve the "Code 10" error that I'm having?

2. Am I using the correct driver version (270.61) with the modified INF?

3. If the driver that I'm using is incorrect, which is the recomended driver version to use for Windows XP Professional SP3 that also support GeForce GT 540M?

Hey Buraot,

You mean the BIOS of your Acer 4743G have the option to choose which graphics adapter you want to use only and disable the other that you won't be using?

My 4750G BIOS do not have any option to disable any graphics adapter. The BIOS that I'm using is "Phoenix SecureCOre Tiano" version 1.22.

Which BIOS are you using and what version?

Hi Buraot,

Do you have NVIDIA OPTIMUS TECHNOLOGY on your Acer 4743G? I see that you have 2 Graphics Adapter so I assume that you have.

Also did you managed resolve the error that you had after you disabled the Intel Graphics Adapter from the BIOS?

Still waiting for your reply...

Hi Buraot,

Thanks for your reply. I saw that you requested for a modded BIOS for your 4743G in another forum here:

http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-HELP-Unlocking-ACER-4743G-Phoenix-BIOS-v1-06

and inside post #2 of the thread (http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-HELP-Unlocking-ACER-4743G-Phoenix-BIOS-v1-06?pid=29278#pid29278), Kizwan mentioned in step 3 that:

3. "Your notebook have Nvidia Optimus. Disabling Intel HD will make your notebook unusable. Intel HD act as a display controller for both Intel HD & Nvidia GPU. If Intel HD is disabled, Nvidia won't be able to output the frames to the display because the route is cutoff."

Can you tell me:

1. Have you used the modded BIOS for your 4743G from Kizwan as posted over here:

http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-HELP-Unlocking-ACER-4743G-Phoenix-BIOS-v1-06?pid=29309#pid29309 ?

2. After you used the modded BIOS provided by Kizwan for your 4743G to disable the "Intel HD Graphics Adapter", do you still get display on your LCD screen?

3. Do you still encounter the "Yellow exclaimation mark" error for your Geforce GT 540M on your Windows XP?

Awaiting your reply....

Hi Buraot,

I would appreciate if you can give me the answers to my following questions. Please input your answer next to my questions. Thanks.

1. So you have used the modded BIOS created by Kizwan for your Acer Aspire 4743G?

2. After you used the modified BIOS to disable the Intel HD Graphics Adapter, you still get display on your LCD screen?

3. So what Kizwan have mentioned to you about the part where after you disable the Intel HD Graphics Adapter, you will NOT get any display as the output will be cut, this is actually not true?

4. Do you still encounter the "Yellow exclaimation mark" error for your Geforce GT 540M on your Windows XP?

Please answer the above mentioned questions with a "YES" or a "NO".

Thanks.

Yes. The solution is very simple.

GET WITH THE PROGRAM, DUMP YOUR XP, AND ADAPT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.

You have an Optimus switchable graphics. Disabling Intel graphics, as suggested by Buraot is mentally retarded to the extreme, for Intel HD is what gives your laptop 8 hour battery. Going with 1/2 the graphics system, with just your GT 540M, you get at best, 4 hours if you're lucky. So what is the point of shelling out all that money for a laptop with decent graphics, only to be held back by your unexplainable phobia of a new OS? Why, a few hours with Windows 7, you'll be handling it just like the time you switched from Windows 98 to XP. Remember that? And back then I'll bet you thought XP was a nightmare to learn, too. The adjustment from 98 to XP was tremendous. Far more engaging, I would think, than migrating from XP to 7. But with Windows 7, the adjustment should be a cinch, because 7 really makes thing so much simpler and rewarding. By sticking to XP, you are losing out on more than switchable graphics. You are also missing instant partitioning with Disk Management. You are losing all those beautiful icons and themes. You are missing gadgets and the dock. You are missing the disk space bar. You lose all of that and more, just because of one pigheaded stubbornness to change.
