Q: Nvidia Geforce 8400M Gt Driver query

Hi,

I intend to upgrade my Sony Vaio VGN-NR21S/S laptop to Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit I am currently using Windows Vista Home Edition 32-bit.

My graphics card is not compatiable and I have found few threads on this forum which addresses the issue.

Is it better to do the inplace upgrade and then update the graphics card later?

Thanks in advance,

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

You usually can't upgrade the graphics processor on a laptop. What claimed it wasn't compatible? There are Windows 7 drivers available on NVIDIA's website.

NVIDIA DRIVERS 258.96 WHQL

Also, it is recommended to do a clean install if possible. The inplace upgrade can take a while and a lot of people have problems resulting from it.

I have had to recently reinstall Windows Vista onto my laptop. In the Device Manager\Display Adapters all it says is 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' I know for a fact that my video card is Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS TurboCache, but when I install the driver for this I get a BSOD error. I tried the automatic search on nvidia.com/drivers and installed the driver that came up, the same happened. Is there a way to have Windows recognize my video card as the one stated above?

Greetings to everyone out there, I am new to the forum. Feel free to critique me if I do or say something wrong.

I purchases a Dell 1300 XPS around November, also u should know I keep very good care of my Laptop.

Recently (being the last month) my computer has been freezing (at least the screen) it flickers green and red, then it pixellates, then my computer crashes.

However about two weeks ago my computer flickered and pixellated, but didn't crash. My computer reinitialized my graphics card and started working. It then told me my graphics card had failed. This was great for me because up until then I really had no idea what was going wrong.

So I now know what my problem is.

Then I decided to go onto cyberspace and look around to see if anyone else had the same problem. I found, Yes! Few people did. However no one has been able to solve the problem.

I've updated my driver, rolled back my driver and have come across nothing but failure. The only thing that I've found to work is just disabling my graphics card, which is pretty lame because my computer goes into fits whenever I try to play a movie or a game.

Please if anyone has any information that would help me it would be much appreciated.

Hi guys,

I noticed an old thread around and found it because i experienced the same issue with my nvidia card an i have tried it with a couple models different from 8400M GT and this solution worked just fine.

At a point my graphics card went berserk and from that moment on i had some vertical blue lines over the entire display.

At first I thought it was a OS related issue but after i kept reading and browsing around i noticed that most people recommended to contact Vaio support and they should work out the issue for free in about 3-5 days.

Another solution would have been to bake the entire motherboard which to be honest, i didn't really have the guts to do it

I just wanted to let you all know that this solution really worked and my Vaio has been dunning just fine for the past 4 months without any issues as well as a couple of 2 other machines i applyed this solution to.

1. Buy thermal paste
2. Take your machine apart ( only the case until you can actually reach the video card)
3. Take a hair dryer and hold it at 3cm above your card and turn it on
4. Keep it running for about 2:30 - 3 minutes
5. Make yourself a tee or a cofee and let everything cool off (this is very important because when you apply the thermal paste it is cooler and you could crack something)
6. Apply thermal paste over the video card chip
7. Reasamble your machine

After this everything should run perfectly

I have a HP Pavilion dv9934ca notebook with windows 7 and a Nvidia Geforce 8400m GS. Tonight the screen changed into a bunch of lines of different colors. I restarted and right before the login page it would go back to the screen with the colors. I went into safe mode and everything worked so i uninstalled my display adapter in the device manager and rebooted and windows worked but looks like crap. Windows then automatically downloaded and installed the update for the 8400m GS. So i rebooted and it went back to that colored screen. So I went back into safe mode and uninstalled the adapter again and downloaded the driver from Nvidias website and when I rebooted again i got the same screen. Does anyone have any idea what is going on? I'm starting to think the 8400m is toast.

Hi all.

I recently had problems with the factory installed Vista 32bit on my Sony Vaio VGN-AR51E.

I decided to install Windows 7 64bit and since then my laptop has not found my graphics card Nvidia GeForce 8400M GT.

On device manager, display adapters are shown only as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter but on Vista my graphics card was also shown.

I have tried downloading all relevant drivers etc but the Nvidia installer says no graphics hardware can be found.

I am half decent with computers but have no idea when it comes to editing the .nfi (or whatever its called) files that I have seen other posters suggest.

Can someone please confirm if my card is even compatible with my OS and what is the best route to take.

Also, I only found out that my graphics card was not in use whilst trying to play Rome Total War, and the game would not start as it said DirectX 9 is not installed (I am currently using DirectX 11). I have tried all the downloads for DirectX 9 with no avail so im focusing on the graphics card issue.

Other games, such as SimCity 4, work fine with the standard vga graphics adapter though.

For any more info required, just ask.

Much appreciated

Hi,

I successfully installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit by choosing custom install on my Sony Vaio VGN-NR21S. I didnt delete my Windows Vista Home Edition 32-bit recovery partition.

I am having difficulty in updating the graphics card which is a Nvidia Geforce 8400M GT. I downloaded a desktop 8400 driver from Nvidia site(UK) for me.

I then used the mobility modder tool for Nvidia and it modified the inf file. I then ran the Setup.exe from the Nvidia directory.

The problem is that i keep getting a message saying "The System has not been modified" after running the setup.exe

I then tried the notebook 8400M GT driver from Nvidia site(even though its not supported by Sony) That didnt work.

So i then tried using the Mobility modder on the notebook 8400M driver but the same problem occurs.

I am not confident in modifying the inf file outlined in the following:

I had to do something like that with my Compaq notebook (8200M graphics). Since doing that, I was able to get drivers from Windows Update or use the generic nVidia mobile drivers. I can't tell you whether it was necessary, but it may have helped.

The game loads fine until i begin playing, and the graphics are completely messed up. Picture attached below in thumbnails

I can still move around in the game but cannot play it as you can see.
What happened first was I had an issue with direct x 9.0. I would play the game and it would crash within couple hours of playing and it would give me this error "Directx Has Encountered an Unrecoverable Error" which i already know I have the most recent update for that. Checked my DirectX files; No problems found there and i have the most recent DirectX update. Checked my Graphics Card to see if it needed to be updated. Looked as though it did so I updated it to the most recent update for the Geforce 8400M GS: Verde Driver v266.58. After that I had no more crashes and no more Directx errors but, I started having the graphical issue problems in the picture. I have also made sure I have my settings set to the lowest settings in gameplay because my video card is not that impressive. It's beyond me at this point what to do, I have uninstalled all my graphic drivers and re-installed them again to still come to this problem. I bought the Modern Warfare 2 game from steam, and I know all my specs meet minimum required specs besides my CPU speed, but i still don't see why I shouldn't be able to play the game. I will post more information on here including the DxDiag Report.

Just to mention that I have the latest driver from NVidia; release date 2011.06.01

Thanks in advance.

I have a Sony vgnfz280e and it will not load Windows 7 due to the driver. Sony and Nvidia point to each other. Has anyone solved this problem?

Welcome to seven forums. Did you first try running the windows upgrade advisor to see if you system can even run seven s suggested by sony? Sony eSupport - VGN-FZ280E. I haven't heard of windows seven not being able to be loaded because of a video driver, usualy it will just show up as standard VGA. Anyone else know about this? fabe

Hi,

I've been running Windows 7 after upgrading from Vista for a couple of months without any problems. The compatibility program keeps giving me the all clear, but for the past week my graphics card has been spontaneously crashing when I go to play Minecraft and Bejeweled 3. The first two times it recovered and I couldn't seem to track down an error report to find out why; tonight when I opened up Bejeweled I had to manually shut the laptop down as the screen glitched and froze (the image started to break up into bars and then locked completely). It's now crashed twice in one night on games I seemed to be able to run previously without much issue (well, minecraft is its own monster, but Bejeweled has never done this to me before! ). I've been surfing the forums and it looks like there have been very similar issues with the card and Windows 7, but all the related posts are well over a year old and don't quite seem to match up. I'm creating a backup and am prepared to try and update the driver as one old thread suggested, but I wanted to get some current feedback first.

I am running Windows 7 32 bit home premium on a Dell Inspiron 1420 notebook; a Core2 Duo 1.80GHz processor; 2GM memory; (A10?) BIOS; INVIDIA GeForce 8400m GS driver version 8.15.11.8621.

- If anyone has recently had this model of card crash on them, did a driver update fix the problem? (I ask because a similar old thread said the update seemed to make it worse, but that user was having some other symptoms ... Read more

A:INVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS card crashing, some Qs b4 I update driver?

While a driver update might work, I don't think this is the real cause of the problem...it sounds like a hardware failure to me, most likely due to overheating. Does the card have a fan, if so, can you open up your machine and check that the fan is still running?

Doh, just noticed it's a laptop (mobile chipset). You could use monitoring tools such as SpeedFan or one of my favorite Windows sidebar gadgets called GPU Observer to check the temperature.

Anyway, the driver you're looking at is the correct one and it's not a bad idea to update - just be on the safe side and make a backup or restore point first.

I'm not a gamer, but rather an enthusiastic net surfer and would like my present graphics card to be as fast as easily possible. To do this, it has been suggested that I update my card's driver with downloading/installing Nvidia's latest driver (285.62 WHQL, Win7 64-bit...4G RAM, Firefox 9). Would this be the the right thing to do?

Hi all

I have a Samsung RF511 (detailed specs at Specs - Notebooks NP-RF511 | Samsung Laptops) (<1year old) PC running OEM 64bit Win 7, and it has been running fine, except for 2 instances of BSOD. Both these times, the Nvidia GeFORCE got disabled automatically. I am not sure what caused it, but I am uploading both the mini-dump files, performance data, and the BSOD software analysis files. I have Nvidia Optimus GeFORCE gt 630m, and Intel HD Graphics card both on my PC. Please help!!!

Thanks a lot guys.

A:BSOD from maybe NVIDIA GeFORCE driver

One was related to video the other was neofltr_650_16339.sys . This files belongs to product Secure Application Manager and were developed by company Juniper Networks. This files have description NetBIOS Redirector.

Hi,
I just reformatted my pc computer (coz i had a software issue i wasnt able to fix), and i'm looking for the driver for my video card, but i can't find it, can anyone help me?

This is what happend. Of course i checked the nvidia site. I'm guessing it's the geforce 6 series. so i download the latest Geforce/ion driver release 185 which supposedly supports 6600. This message comes up during the installation:
The software you are installing for this hardware (NVIDIA GeForce 6600) has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP. But i continue with the installation anyway.

It didn't work, my video is still safe-mode-looking and laggy. I tried twice. the 185 version and a 93.81 version. I can't find the right one. I'm SURE i got the XP version. what's wrong with what i'm doing?

I'm sure nvidia should have passed the windows logo testing whatever thing... I have an XP professional service pack 2 installed.
Right now, the driver my vcard is using is a vga compatibility one.

Help, thx
 

A:Looking for Nvidia Geforce 6600 gt driver

You will find it on the nVidia website... sometimes, if older, it will be part of a combination driver download that works with several different models of the NVidia cards...
Is it possible that your NVidia card has reached the end of its useful product life... or the fan has gone bad?

Hi,
I have this video card: Nvidia GeForce GT 630
It happens occasionally that the driver get a crash error (often it happens when I resume the PC from standby/sleep).

Screenshots:
http://s3.postimg.org/u7yuu33hv/Appunti01.png
http://s4.postimg.org/zf3mdbcrh/Appunti02.png

In English, should be:
Display Driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 320.57 stopped responding and has successfully recovered

I have already tried to install various versions of Nvidia drivers, but without results. During the setup I choose to only install the video driver and PhysX.

The strange thing is that with other OS does not happen this error (for example, in Windows 10)... instead using Windows 7 appears often (several times a day).

How can I fix the problem?

Thanks in advance. Regards.

Hello,

I purchased a Compaq V6205NR laptop that came with Vista. I tried it, didn't like it, and then installed XP Pro. I have everything working except for the video card. The video card is a nVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (integrated laptop).

Does anyone know what driver I could use?

I've downloaded and tried to install many, but I haven't been able to get it working.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Yeah

Give this one a try.

Its funny that I didnt see it on the compaq support page for your mobo model, the one I suggested says it supports that GPU.

However you may need to find a platform driver which has the chipset/graphics driver in one. Can you read the box or manual and tell me what it has for a chipset ?

If it is the nforce 430 by any chance then your going to have to find a aftermarket driver for it as it only has support for vista via nvidia downloads.

Hello,
I just installed Windows 7 today. When I booted up the computer, to my surprise aero peek did not load because it says that my video card does not support it. When I went to check what video card was being detected, the 8400m was not showing up. I downloaded the drivers for windows 7 off of the nvidia website and still no go. I am using a Dell XPS with 4 gigs of memory and a 2ghz Dualcore processor.

Thanks

A:GeForce 8400m problems

What version of windows are you running? Their are alot of threads about the 8400M. I'm kind of tired so if you'll use the search function at the top of the page and just enter drivers 8400m or nvidia 8400m you should get several threads that have delt with this issue. Sorry I can't walk you through it but it's 1:36 Am right now and I'm tired. Also when you have the time please go to your user CP top of page and fill in all of your system specs as it will help others help you if needed in the future. Thanks and welcome to seven forums.
