HELP! but be gentle

Hello, please be gentle with me I'm not as advanced and I've tried looking around these forums for my answer but to no avail.

I am on a Toshiba Satellite 2415-S205 with a nVidia GeForce4 420 GO card. I have tried countless drivers (omega, etc) and nothing has worked. I don't know which driver to use for my laptop from here. I tried installing 83.60 but it said it couldn't support my hardware.

Pleasepleaseplease help haha.

All I'm trying to do is update my driver so that I can continue playing City of Heroes without problems

Wow... that sounded so lame/geek.

Look no further.

You've come to the rigtht place.

In order to succesfully update your driver you must use the corresponding modded INF file and replace the original one. All is explained in the FAQ and frontpage, so pls. have a read.

i have read the FAQ but i am still confused.

1) which series do I download?

2) do I download the EXE, install, and then replace w/ the new INF file?

sorry. like i said. confused.

Download driver and modded INF.

Extract driver somewhere.

extract modded INF into this dir as well replacing original INF.

Now use update driver method to install driver (you could use setup.exe but not always guaranted to work)

This part is in the FAQ section with step by step instructions.

Enjoy and may your next post be filled with new driver joy :)

You can use any driver you see here, with a modded INF.

The world is your oyster.

83.60 is so old, try 83.90 :)

ok i installed 83.60 but when it finished installing it gave me the error:

Error in NvCpl.dll

Missing Entry:NVCplUpdatePersistData

And when I restarted it wouldn't allow me to get the winXP login screen - I had to revert back to my last good configuration

As for 83.90 - it's not in the list, where do I find it?

v6.14.0010.4591 is your currently used driver version :) I asked about VideoBIOS as some old Toshiba's with a certain VideoBIOS suffer from a so called 'BlackBar' phenomena which can be solved at the Enhancer page (see my signature).

People report that 83.90 is a keeper, so you can try, if you dare. Else we recommend v72.14 if you want to play it safe :)

I tried 83.90, still the same errors. i don't know where/how to find my VideoBIOS?

I do have the black bar problem which is what I'm trying to deal with.

1) do you know how I can fix that error or what's causing it?

2) 72.14 links to nVidia.com - what do I do?

well 72.14 worked like a charm - however now my interface for my program AVG (anti-virus) can't open the control center program that sits in my taskbar and monitors - any ideas on this problem?
