help with drivers for nvidia quadro k3000m


Recommended Posts

I installed a  nvidia quadro k3000m onto my "Alaienware M17xR4". At the time i was using windows 8 and got the drivers from this site. Everything worked great drivers installed just fine. My computer later installed windows 10 and now the video card will not work. It was a long time ago and i can not make heads or tail of what driver to install. I am running :

 System Manufacturer: Alienware
             System Model: M17xR4
                     BIOS: InsydeH2O Version 03.72.24A13

      Available OS Memory: 16266MB RAM
                Page File: 4632MB used, 14066MB available

There is no NVIDIA entry in your dxdiag.txt

What do you see in device manager?

Yellow bang or 2 different GPUs similar to following screenshot?


Try to install via "have disk method"

Latest Quadro driver: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/120163/en-us

when i try to install for there it does not work. Before i had to get a modified driver because its not suppressed to work with my mother board. I got the drivers from this site but have no idea where on this site i got it from.

Don't use the installer.

Your Kepler GPU is compatible with latest drivers, get it incl. modified INF from


"Have disk method" and disabling driver signatures is mandatory.


NB other devices with yellow bang can be identified by vendor ID

when going to disable driver signatures my computer flashes past the screen to disable it to fast for me to even hit "7" i tried spamming 7 that didn't work as well. I tired to install the driver after replacing the file like you said but it would not take. Any idea's?

We need to find out why your Quadro is detected as 870M

Whats your hardware ID? See following screenshot for reference.

So it's really NVIDIA_DEV.1199 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M"

It's supported in modified INF

Run these commands

bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit -set testsigning ON

Reboot and try to install again.


Otherwise try to get help from this user who has exacty the same rig:
