Please Help - How to get XP Drivers?


Recommended Posts

I am desperately trying to get XP drivers for my laptop Medion Erazer X6815.

It has Intel HD and GT555M Optimus graphics. The Bios sucks because there is no option to select a desired card, it's forced as Optimus.

I can install XP, I have most of the drivers needed except the GT555M. I really dont want to have to sacrifice or lose the use of the GT555M.

Come on experts, someone must be able to help me.

I don't know if these will help, but I copied them from Manage Hardware on Windows 7:

NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M

Hardware Ids





Compatible Ids








Inf name


Inf section


Thanks in advanced :)

Windows 7 Compatibilty mode does not work well with some legacy programs and games.

I managed to get the GT555M driver installed by editing some of the INF files, and adding:

%NVIDIA_DEV.0DCE.01% = Section025, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0DCE&SUBSYS_20A61B0A


In the different Ini sections.

Yellow triangle shows up in device manager though and Control panel wouldnt install.

Will keep trying though!

Optimus was designed from scratch to work with Windows 7, mainly from the inability of older OSes to handle multiple display adapters as main output devices. On an Optimus system, going from Windows 7 to XP is a significant performance and stability downgrade.
