8500 Gt Driver Download !!INSTALL!! Question
Using the latest Ubuntu 13.10 and trying to get the proprietary drivers for my GeForce 8500 GT. But it doesn't show in the Additional settings. It's blank. Am I doing something wrong or should I download it from the Nvidia homepage? How do I install it? Step by step would be awesome for me as a non-geek.
8500 gt driver download question
Guys, I think I fixed the problem! I replaced the 8500GT video card with an 8400GS card yesterday and downloaded their 337.88 drivers. So far, so good. No crashes/lockups/freezes. I appreciate all your help! I guess we can close this one.
cor-el - I ran it in safe mode for ten minutes and not get the freeze up. I updated my BIOS thinking that might help (BIOS was dated 2009). It did make a difference:now it seems to surf OK but if I try to enlarge a window to fill the screen by clicking and dragging the edge of the window, it will freeze the computer every time in Firefox and sometimes in IE. BUT now, after a few seconds, the machine will reset itself. Before the BIOS update, I had to shut the machine off with the switch on the front of the case. After the BIOS update the computer couldn't find the video card. I restarted it again and then it found the card. I downloaded the latest drivers for the video card and installed them but it didn't help. The video card is an Nvidia GeForce 8500GT, about five years old. Could it be the problem?
If you are installing your printer for the first time, have updated your computer operating system, or the printer is unable to communicate with the computer, you will need to download the recommended driver in order to print.
Choose the Download button to the right of the software or driver file you wish to download. In most cases, you will see a driver that is recommended for you. Downloading and installing the MP Drivers or Full Driver and Software Package will help you set your printer up to print and scan.
Thank you so much for posting this fix. It worked perfectly for my NVIDIA 7300LE card. I used your link to download the new video driver first which took some time due to its size. I then used the the link for your manual windows upgrade which took many hours to download and install Windows 10. After the upgrade finished, I installed the new video driver and it is all working perfectly. It all went smoothly without problems. Thanks again for making it possible.
This method worked like a charm for me. I had to download the GEForce driver as well. My old LG monitor looks better than it ever has, and the Win10 installation went smoothly. Thank you so much for this workaround.
as I posted earlier, all went well with suggested Windows 10 download and driver installation. I have one minor problem that I noticed. If I put my computer to Sleep, when I come back to operations, I lose the driver ability to provide a nice font and resolution (it is too big for the screen). When I reboot, all is well again.
Thank you for your assistance. Having the same problem, I followed your advice to install Windows 10 using the Media Creation Tool. It installed without complaining about the NVIDIA display. I then downloaded and installed the latest GeForce driver and all seems to be well.
Thanks Ivan, but do u think your idea works for my case too? Mines Nvidia GeForce G210M / 9400M G Windows 7 64 bit OS.Does your media creation tool allow me to download windows 10 dump and install through a flash drive / iso file? Am I gonna have to reinstall all the drivers and programs again?
I have followed the instructions above, I have installed Windows 10 Pro x64 ok and the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter has installed for my Geforce GO 7900gtx, downloaded the drivers via your links but it either says it incompatible or you have the most up to date driver already installed. Any ideas why it does not install?Thanks
Thank you so much. I had the same issue upgrading to Windows 10. I followed your instruction and used the media creation tool to upgrade. fortunately for me, though, I never needed to download the driver update because the original one worked perfectly.
I had the Nvidia driver problems after windows upgrade. My solution was to fully uninstall the display driver then run the latest version of windows 10 ISO which I previously extracted to a folder. I selected the download and install updates button then agreed to the Microsoft agreement. At the ready to install page make sure the install windows and keep personal files and apps are selected. I had the problem of not being able to select these settings and it turned out I did not have the latest ISO version for my version of windows 10. Once you are happy select install. After installation windows had recognised and installed the correct Nvidia driver. This procedure is also what I do if I cannot repair windows using sfc /scannow or dism. I hope this helps someone.Thank you Ivan for a fantastic site and I am pleased to say I have used many of the driver updates you have provided and encourage every one to buy you a beer.Best regards, Mick
Finally got it to work by downloading the 259.47 driver then going through the device driver update process. Did the download for 341.95 driver but it say it cannot identify compatible hardware. What a pain!Many thanks for your help.
I followed your instructions and did not have any problems at all. I downloaded the driver for GeForce 6600 GT for 64-bit from your link onto a flashdrive, copied it to my desktop and ran it from there. Everything went perfectly, no need to adjust resolution either!! Thank you for this post!!!
Thank you Ivan!Using Nvida GeForce 6150SE. The download makes the screen look better and I got back Sleep mode which was missing with the Microsoft generic driver.Thanks again for all your hard work on this problem.
This was my saver for getting Windows 10 to work on my Acer aspire 7520 notebook from 2007. I got help from the YouTube video you have linked to on your site and I got the 309.08 64-bit version I downloaded installed. Without this I would have been stuck with no Windows 10 or I had to operate it with generic driver which gave only 32 colours and lousy letters.
Thank you so much Ivan! The auto driver detect on the Nvidia website said I had the latest available driver, but downloading 309.08 from your website allowed me to set the resolution to the proper 19201080! I have an old Dell E521 with Nvidia GeForce 6150 LE and a Dell S2209W monitor. Thank you again very much!
THANK YOU so VERY much! GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 driver update to Windows 10. I followed your directions, thank you for including the downloads for Media Creation and GeForce 309.08 driver (32).You are the GREATEST! Savings $150.00 (not having to pay for Windows 10 update).
Yes, I experienced exactly the same after applying the Windows 10 Anniversary Update recently with both driver versions you mentioned. I have a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 with a Geforce Go 7900 GS.I downloaded the Dell Windows 8 x64 driver (307.68) for Quadro graphics chip and added my card to the *.inf file manually as per video instructions above.
I am having the same question for a Geforce Go 7600 on my laptop. I am using so far the 307.68 driver which functions properly.I have updated to Windows 10 Pro but not yet to Creations. I wonder what will happen when I update.
Just upgraded an HP Pavilion Media Center a1637c with NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE to Windows 10. Windows installed only the basic display driver with resolution 1024768. The NVIDIA link you supplied at the top downloads a working driver for this system: GeForce 309.08 (32-bit).Now I have 1440900. Thank you so very much!

First, in later versions of the MS SQL Server driver, I found that the filename is not sqljdbc_auth.dll but instead mssql-jdbc_auth-8.4.1.x64.dll (in a specific recent version, of course). As for the exact name of the file (and where to look for it if you don't yet have it), it would be whatever is found in the zip you downloaded from MS.
It is recommended that you use the Windows operating system to download or update video card drivers. This is the safest and most reliable way to download or update drivers. The Windows operating system itself downloads and installs new verified drivers.
You've just received your two way radio, taken it out of the package, and now you want to get it operational. You plugged in the programming cable, downloaded the driver, set up the software, and connected the cable the radio to program it.
Guess what i have it too and in my case it's a conflict with the latest nvidia drivers.How do i know ?Well it only happens when i play games.BD labs never cracked this problem although users like have been complaining like for the past few months.BD support team live assistence and BD labs .They just can't solve a problem like this.my question is :The di they ever solved?
First you have to choose your operating system,integrated/motherboard in the final step press on Radeon Xpress 1150. Then press on go. I recommend that you download just the display driver. I don't have that error message. Did you also received the same message eceiving bdmcon: "a required resource.
