HP zd7260us and Go 5700 Drivers

Hi there guys. Recently, I've been having troubles with my HP Laptop. The model is the zd7260us, and I've been having trouble with the video drivers. I've downloaded the 56.54+ drivers, and have installed them. The drivers will be updated until I restart the laptop. After I restart the laptop, and I check the drivers, it isn't the NVIDIA Go5700 anymore, it's back to the "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)". This site was requested to my by NVIDIA as I sent an e-mail to them asking to fix my gr2d problem that I get from playing a game. Please help me guys and gals, and thank you for your time! Have a nice day.

You also need to download 'Pieter's mobile INF' in order for XP to recognize and install properly the driver.

Any original found INFs in the driver package you download needs to be deleted and then put in the mobile INF.

Where can I find Pieter's mobile INF?

Can you by any chance add me on MSN? I'll PM you my ID as soon as you respond with an answer of YES/NO.

The modified INF is with each driver.

Just extract driver somewhere then replace original INF with modded one and install.

We tend not to give out IM's as we get flooded with requests and this would defeat the purpose of the forum where no one can see the answers to the problems if they were all fixed on IM.

Nothing personal of course :)

None taken. I'm sorry, but I don't understand as to where I can find them. Can you tell me which one to download and what to do?

Just go to the driver section, say the 80's series.

Pick a driver there are many to choose from.

Download the driver, extract the driver.

Download the INF, save the INF in the directory where you extracted the driver.

Now goto the FAQ sections and read up on the How to install driver.

Done, now you come back here and rave how good the driver is and how good we are.

Then tell all your friends and family.

That easy :)

HAHA! Thanks for helping me. I'll come back with the results. I'm going to use the "Have Disk" way to install. Is that okay?

-EDIT- Argh! I can't get this to work. Whenever it is almost finish updating, the computer crashes! Then I get a message asking if I want to go into: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) and, Start Windows Normally. If I select "Start Windows Normally", then the computer will crash again, and I have to pick "Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)".

You may also want to get DriverCleaner run this in safe mode after you've uninstalled the driver first.

Then tell all your friends and family of the greatest drivers you've ever seen :)

For some reason, it still doesn't work. After I restart my laptop AFTER I install the drivers from laptopvideo2go.com, the Display Adapter resets to "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)". Something is really wrong. Does anyone know what I can do?

When you're installing the driver, did your GPU come up ?

Like this but with the go5700:

When finished were there any error ?

Try running setup.exe that comes with most drivers.

If you have correctly replaced the original INF with modded one this should install the driver.

If it doesn't then the original INF (there is only 1) needs to be replaced with the modded one of the same driver version.

Yes, a list of that one came up, and I chose the Go5700 one. This is what I did to get the modded INF. Although I don't know if it's right. I downloaded the Driver, and then theres a column next to it called INF. I right clicked it, and selected, "save link as..." and then I saved it onto my desktop. I extracted the Driver into a "New Folder", and then I dragged the INF that I downloaded by the "save link as..." way into the Driver folder. It asked me if I wanted to overwrite the file, and I did. I think this may be the correct way, I'm not sure. Thanks!

That looks to be right, try using the setup.exe way (just run it) to install driver.

What is the INF's version you use? It might be an old INF and it could be coincidence that exactly your Go5700 model is not supported. Out there are some very rare Go5700! They have a specific DEV_ID (0147 or 48, if i rememebr correct ) which we discovered and added support for later.

Anyways use a recent driver (not 54.xx) with the correpsonding new mobile INF.
