Topic: [SLVD]Does not recognize nVdia GeForce 230m on Driverpack Mobile 11.06

Hi everybody,
This is my first message in this forum. Here is my problem:

Graphics Mobile v11.06 (Vista/Win7 x_86) driverpack "does not recognize nVdia geForce 230m" in Toshiba A500 19W notebook. The HWID number for "nVdia GeForce 230m vga whose drivers cannot be installed is given below.

HWID Number:
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0A28&SUBSYS_FF001179&REV_A2\4&2C2F074A&0&0008: NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M

Hope that my problem can be solved.
Thank you.

Do you get an error in the device manager?
That HWID is directly supported by DP_Graphics_Mobile_wnt6-x86_1106\x86\G_M\Nvidia\1\nvtd.inf
I've been having problems with the 275.33 series drivers in XP.  Does a previous pack (11.05.1) work?

Hi, @mr_smartepants;
I dont get any error on device manager (yellow "!" or "?" etc.) But it shows "standart vga device".

I just reached to my friend's computer which has the problem. I'll start the test with the previous pack (11.05.1) soon. The OS is not XP but Win7 (laptop's original OS) Xp driver problems are not relevant to us.

I'll let you know the results soon.
Thank you.

Thanks for testing.  Nobody else has reported anything (good or bad) with this latest pack, so you're the first.
Your feedback is vital in fixing any bugs found.
I think there may be a problem with the 275.33 drivers as a whole, that's why I mentioned the XP bug also.

Moving thread to appropriate Win7 area...

Hi, @mr_smartepants

I want to share this information before test.
During installation, towards the end of driver set up process, windows seems like it accepts the driver, and screen resolution reaches to its expected value (1366*768px) for a while.

However, when windows installation is complete and ready to use, i see that the DRIVER IS NOT ACCEPTED at the end!

Yes, that's what I'm finding with the 275.33 drivers.  The 270.61 drivers do not have this problem.
I'll post an update soon.  Would you be willing to test to make sure it works?

Re: [SLVD]Does not recognize nVdia GeForce 230m on Driverpack Mobile 11.06

Sure. I'll tested it.

By the way, in win7 toolkit latest version, some error messages and driver adding problems have emerged. I am waiting for their fixing.
When the fixed version is released, i'll start the test inmediately.

Here is the link for the above mentioned problem:

I'm aware of the problem with the W7T.  Their previous build doesn't have that error.  I use batch files to integrate my drivers.

Hi again,
Good News! smile
When the test is done with mobile driverpack 11.05.1 version on your suggestion, Windows recognized nVida GeForce 230m without any problem. The previous version 270.61 nVidia driver was accepted.

This results show that nVidia v275.33 driver in the current 11.06 is problematic! As a solution:

One option can be to remove v275.33 from 11.06 and add previous v230.61 (which has no problems) instead
There is also another option: when the new version mobile driverpack is released (if nVidia has not released a Fixed upper version), the unproblematic 230.61 driver should be used in this new pack.

Yes, I'm already working on new packs to replace the 11.06 ones with my limited free time.
