Nice of you to start your own topic. (I'll just ignore/delete other post or move these, no need to post twice, I see all of them :) )

When your laptop is booting up hit F8 until a menu appears. Either boot into safemode or last known good configeration and use system restore or driver rollback to your last driver, then we will figure out what is up, you did use the have disk method and replace the INF with Pieter's correct?

You can AIM or MSN message me for live help if you need it.

After you are back on your working driver, run this.


and post the logfile here as an attachment.

I hope your system name isn't what it says in there, even if it is golden I wouldn't want a laptop that looks like an ***.

So when you install the 81.98 driver does your graphics card appear in the list of supported cards?

It should be this:

NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0325.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go 5250/5500"

Try the 81.98 driver or 82.12 driver again and if you need to choose 5200 or 5200 32/64MB while installing.

Have you tried uninstalling your driver first (add/remove programs) then installing one of the above drivers? (make sure you use have disk method)

well my laptop look like a *** cuz it sucks untill and unless its drivers are updated. chineese sucks. its a chineese HASEE company brand and cus it is cheap thats why i,ve bought it, anyways, i,ve tried the have disk method for 81.98 driver by choosing 5250/5500 and apparently this donsent work, so i think mode file need to be modified and i did it by adding the line appeared in my outdated driver mode file and this dosen;t work too. my system retarts again and again but what i,v not tried is to reinstall old ones then try the new one, i,ve used update drivers method. anyways dont worry cuz i ain,t a rookie, i can understand technical terms and work.

any hot ideas.

Alright zen.

I'll have a talk with Pieter about this stuff.

Can you please link me to the original driver or atleast INF that came with that driver? (There was an old manufacture driver that worked right?)

Try removing the ; here in the INF and see what happens.

;if upon reboot after install you have a black screen remove the ';' from line below and reinstall driver.
;HKR,, ModesetBlankDelay,[tab][/tab][tab][/tab]  %REG_DWORD%,	1

(Only remove from the second line)

There are also some other options that might help, but ill have to ask the experts on those. (your original driver should help us)

That integrated card could cause you some serious problems, we'll have to see what happens here.

Time for some sneaky expert INF modding. :)

zen, from reading your originally posted NERD logfile, the problem you have is not mean. The driver was NOT installed correctly, that's why you have all the problem and i dare to say that you didn't used our provided installtion descriptions/guides which clearly state to use one of Pieter's mobile INF for the driver you want to install.

So i suggest you begin all over again:

1. Uninstall your old driver from Add/Remove CXontrol Panel.

2. Reboot

3. Install new driver (replacing the original INF with Pieter's mobile INF) with HaveDisk method.

4. Reboot and you're set.

Because of your (lets say 5 or more) messed up installation tries i suggest you also apply my "Remove Phantom Devices Producedure" described in the FAQ.
