    According to the model of NVIDIA card, it is always suggested to download the latest driver from the device vendor's offical download site, please click here.

  • I'm not sure if you ever figured this out, but I've been struggling with it for a while and finally came up with the answer!

    I have a Dell laptop with a nvidia GEForce 8400 M GS.

    The microsoft update is for an GEForce 8400 GS (not for the notebook graphics card).

    You can go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

    MAKE SURE THE PRODUCT SERIES IS "M" or notebook

    And download the

    Verde 280.26 Driver

     

     

     

    Version:

    280.26 <sup>WHQL</sup>

    Release Date:

    2011.08.09

    Operating System:

    Windows 7 64-bit, Windows Vista 64-bit

    Language:
