drv_quickstart.gif If you are here to update your nVidia-based graphics card but do not know where/how to start, this ForceWare Updater's Quickstart Guide is to help you.

For quick instructions with pictures, check this (for Windows XP) or this (for Windows 7 / Vista).

Basic Information


Why I cannot install these drivers?

Which driver can I use for my graphics card?


nVidia drivers are based on a system called Unified Driver Architecture (UDA) which means all nVidia card drivers are using one driver. However for some reasons, they just remove the support for installing those drivers for some cards, and mostly laptop-based GO cards.

We, the LaptopVideo2Go.com Team, are unlocking those restrictions and also fixing some problems and tweaking the drivers for the best experience with your laptop/desktop and nVidia graphics card.

This means ALL nVidia based graphics cards (TNT2, GeForce and Quadro) can use ANY of the drivers after using our 'modification'.

If you try to install any of these drivers without modification , you will most likely get this error:

"nVidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."

This is because of the restrictions of driver itself. To solve this issue and install the driver as it should be for your graphics card, you have to use our 'Modded INF'. Click here if you want to learn more about Modded INFs.

If your graphics card is one of those, you can use our Modded INF to alter installation restrictions:

Choosing the Driver


What is the latest driver for my graphics card?

Which driver should I use with my graphics card?

What is the best driver?


As explained above, if your card is any of the cards listed, latest driver released is the latest driver for your card.

You can check all drivers by their Release Version here. The higher number indicates more recent driver. You can install any of them, but we have some recommendations as some of them are poor and some of them are generally good drivers.

Do NOT forget there is NO best driver for everything. One is good for games, one is good for video, one fixes some problems while introducing new ones and so on.

In general which series you should use with your card is;

  • GeForce 8xxx cards -
160 and up.
GeForce 7xxx cards - 80 and up.
GeForce 6xxx cards - 70 and up.
GeForce FX (5xxx) cards - 70 and up.
GeForce 4xxx cards - 60 and up.
GeForce 3 cards - 60 and up.
GeForce 2 cards - 60 and up.
Quadro cards - 80 and up.

Latest ones usually work fine with all cards, the list is just for stating you can but should NOT go below recommended series.

You can check the Benchmarks Section to check the results of tests with different graphics cards and drivers.

Just keep your Operating System in mind while choosing the driver.

Installing the Driver


How can I install these drivers?

Where is the Modded INF?


Now that you have decided which driver to install you can proceed to next step - installing them with Modded INF.

Basically it's a 3-step process:

1. Download driver, double click and select extract,

2. Download modded INF and replace original INF in extracted folder,

3. Install & reboot.

When you open a driver thread, you will see several links like drv_drivers.gifDriver | drv_inf.gifModded INF, which are all you need to install the driver you want. First click Driver link to download the related driver which comes WITHOUT the needed INF file.

For example, if you choose 84.25 driver to install, driver file will be 8425.exe and when extracted it should create another folder named 8425.

Next step is getting the Modded INF and replacing the old one. Click on the Modded INF link to download the file. If file opens instead of downloading go back, right click the link and choose 'Save target as...' or 'Save link as' options. Now it should ask where to download the file. Select the 8425 folder. If you did it right, there should be a file replacement confirmation dialogue. Replace the file and you are now ready to install the driver.

There are 2 ways to install the driver;

Using Setup.exe (if provided): After replacing old INF with Modded INF, just open Setup.exe and hopefully it will install.

Using 'Have Disk' method (recommended): If somehow Setup fails or there is no Setup provided with the driver, you have to use this method to install. You can find very detailed instructions on how to use this method here (for Windows XP) or here (for Windows Vista)

You can learn more about driver post threads here.

Final Words and Troubleshooting


Now what should I do after installing drivers?

How can I install my previous driver back?


Restart your computer and you should be done updating your graphics card driver! Congratulations and welcome to world of modified drivers!

If you want to roll back to your previous driver, go to Device Manager -> Display Adapters -> "Your Card" , double click to open its properties and click 'Roll Back Driver' button.

There are some solutions to common problems and some more tweaks available by using INF Enhancer (only for XP/2000 32bit drivers) which can be accessed by clicking the drv_enhance.gifINF Enhancer link or going to Enhancer directly here.

You can now try any of the drivers by using this guide. Repeating again that there is NO best driver for everything. Best driver criteria is yourself and what you are looking for. Just check out the forum and read other people's comments.

If you want to learn more about Modded INF and other related topics, you can check FAQ section. Here are some highlights;

Please post any comments, suggestions, questions and other information related to the driver in its own thread.

Additionally, use of the Forum's Search function is recommended.

If you still have a general problem that is not related with the specific driver, please post in the Support section.

Don't forget to check Software , Tools, Utilities & Customized INFs section for good software and INFs made for specific laptops, and Device Drivers section to keep your other drivers up-to-date as well.
