I have a G75VX .. and it is impossible for me to download the Nvidia drivers because I can only install the "old" nvidia asus

why Asus decided to do otherwise. with this choice, it can not take advantage of new updates from NVIDIA.
I am stuck at 306.14 .. Cool thanks asus .. WHY! : @

I just bought a laptop gamer to 1500 € for learn that I could not even get the latest update nvidia ..
AND IS IT A NOTEBOOK FOR GAMER.... !! ;@

Same problem for me. Tried Windows 7 (thought Windows 8 is the problem) and can't install any official NViDIA driver. We need a workaound...

here is a moded inf for all asus drivers. with this I have successfully installed the latest driver from nvidia

I'll test,
there is a risk that not all is not updated?
because of
DriverVer = 12/03/2012, 9.18.13.1070
Or maybe missing lines from the asus driver

Yes he told me that some file is missing

=> DSNT WORK ! :(

Maybe you could shortly discribe what you have done. A step by step guide would be nice :)

I managed to install the original nvidia drivers by extending the original version of nvam.ini the following way:
I added

%NVIDIA_DEV.11A1.10AD.1043% = Section125, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A1&SUBSYS_10AD1043
%NVIDIA_DEV.11A1.21AB.1043% = Section166, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A1&SUBSYS_21AB1043

to the section
[NVIDIA_SetA_Devices.NTamd64.6.0] ,
and


%NVIDIA_DEV.11A1.10AD.1043% = Section178, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A1&SUBSYS_10AD1043
%NVIDIA_DEV.11A1.21AB.1043% = Section180, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A1&SUBSYS_21AB1043

and

NVIDIA_DEV.11A1.10AD.1043 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670MX"
NVIDIA_DEV.11A1.21AB.1043 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670MX "

to the section [Strings] at the end of the file. I optained those assignments from Asus's nvidia drivers. Simply copying the whole nvam.ini file from Asus didn't work.

You managed to install 370.10 on a 670 mx?

Have you tried installing the driver in Safe Mode? Namely, uninstalling the ASUS driver and installing the nVidia ones after a reboot? That may help.

I really wonder how much improvement there is gonna be going from 306.14 to 370.14 on a 670 MX. I already OCed the gpu and got extremely satisfying improvements in FPS in games and at 3dmark11. At stock Core clock and Memory clock speeds I was getting around 3750 for a score. Now it is 4600 and I have another 600mhz more to the top for the Memory clock speed. The gpu temp has gone up like 3-4C which is acceptable. If I get another 10-20% going from 306.14 to 370.14 that would be sweetness! We have to figure out a way how to bypass the restriction and install the drivers, or just have Asus keep up with nvidia because this is really outrageous! Come on Asus! This is the only disappointment in buying an Asus gaming laptop so far!

Uninstalling the drivers and installing the nvidia ones after a reboot does not work. I can confirm that. Even if you have internet connection off. In the beginning of the installation it says "No compatible hardware"or something like that :(

P.S. Don't you guys love how the G75VX fan openings look on the back? It's like a freaking Murcielago!

@npanushev, are you on Win8 or Win7 when running 3dmark11 on 670mx ~306.14 driver?

house7
12-21-2012, 07:03 AM
just have to install the drivers using the new inf files after you disable graphics driver certificates at boot up. You can do that by going into advanced boot options. I think this is only a windows 8 thing.

Right, I'am on Windows 7 and Nvidia 310.70 Beta Drivers now. Just copied the modified .inf file to Display.Drivers and started the setup. Everything went fine. Dunno if it also works with the WHQL drivers. No improvements in 3Dmark11 as far as I have seen. (also getting around 4600 Points with OC)

I don't see what the point is of going from 306.14 to 310.70 beta if there is not going to be any gaming performance boost then.. Can you confirm if you are getting better FPS anywhere? What about Far Cry 3? People are saying that 310.70 gives 40% higher FPS but again you have beta ones..

To the other post I am on a pre-installed Windows 8.

People overwhelmingly requested Opimus for the G75 so we put it back in for the VX. The upside is you get all the functions and benefits of display switching. Yay! The downside is that Optimus is not included on Nvidia's drivers on its website because it requires more qualification and customization to the hardware implementation. This takes time between ASUS and Nvidia to qualify, so, yes, positives and negatives.

You can probably hack the non-Optimus drivers as shown above, but you'll lose Optimus and because the hardware is specifically designed to route the display outputs in a certain way, standard drivers might not work 100% correctly.

Optimus is not included on Nvidia's drivers

So Nvidia's Optimus advertising was a big lie because their (own) drivers never worked?


new hardware features are designed into NVIDIA GeForce 200M, 300M and Fermi GPUs which make Optimus possible, NVIDIA's software team has also implemented innovative technology to enable Optimus to function seamlessly without having to manually change settings.

No, no that's not it at all.

They do exactly as stated - their driver teams work on Optimus and it's a seamless technology. It's just that it requires more customisation and testing between the partner - ASUS (or whoever) - in its specific hardware design. Their drivers are supplied through us. If you download it from our page it's Nvidia's name on it and install package, not ASUS.

Can Optimus be enabled for G75VX? How? Just drivers (the Nvidia Ones)? Bios Update?

The problem is that partners don't give flying guzanga about keeping their drivers up to date. For my Alienware M17x R3 with an AMD 6990M, Dell put out ONLY ONE driver back in July 2011.

We'll see how ASUS manages.

On laptop video cards, ASUS historically hasn't been particularly good - then again, I don't know of any vendor who is. Dell apparently isn't, HP isn't (work laptop, at least on their mobile workstations, I can only assume that the consumer systems are worse), Toshiba isn't (previous laptop), and ASUS put out one driver update for my G53SX in a year. That said, the reference nVidia drivers ran fine on my laptop (because it doesn't have optimus :o).

Optimus is much more custom, so driver testing is much more difficult, so we can't fault ASUS until we know of some company which keeps Optimus well-supported.

@12er, thats because you need the other pieces of the file intact. I believe that what you modified is setting the kernel versions to install on:
6.0 - Win Vista
6.1 - Win 7
6.2 - Win 8

The last bit says that this driver works for this (given) hardware.

Try by disabling the driver signatures in Windows 8. I think that for 670m might work without modified inf file. But for 670MX it might be necessary for you to wait for an update here:

got mine GPU working on 310.90 w/win7x64ultimate, with modified inf from lv2go for 310.70 (but for win 8 - still worked)... installed it w/out problem... haven't seen any increase in FC3...as a matter a fact, I got this feeling that the fps even dropped since 306.13 removed...
however a huge, huge, definite increase in Batman Arkham City I have steady 45-50 all maxed out except tessellation off, it just wont spin the game more than 30 fpa, for me that is not enough -i like fps over quality, and especially noted increase in Max Payne 3.
Actually max payne is completely maxed (tesselletion up to the top) out except of MSAA which I really do not even care, got full res, 1080, and even I put on MSAA I do not see differnece, I have steady 60 FPS with 310.90...
graphic in both games are amazing...
May I say my card is OC'ed to 735/2400, my temp is not rising more than 62 dgrs, my setup on general nV settings is set to Balanced... CPU-Z showing off 3.4 GHz working clock all 8(4) cores includes upto the max, and GPU running at 100% when in game...

I would love to upload a fixed version of the inf file, but I get the error message "invalid file", if I try to upload the inf file. Anyway, I posted a description on the first page of the thread about how to fix the inf file for Windows Vista, Windows 7 and WIndows 8. In the current version of the drivers the inf file is called nvamn.ini, and it's located in the folder C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\314.07\Win8_WinVista_Win7_ 64\International\Display.Driver .

Give me some time to find out how to upload attachments with the forum software ... I doesn't seem to be possible to upload files, which are not images.

Listen to this^^ It really works, I currently have 314.07 drivers because I carefully followed the instructions given_
Once you have modified this .ini file, then restart your computer disabling driver enforcement signature(something like that) and proceed to do the driver installation setup. It should work, although it will ask you, telling you that the driver is not approved yada yada, do you want to install anyways? Just click Yes and your on your way to newer drivers. It works great.
