    Hey, I see you guys have saved lots of lives here and I can't hold myself back of asking a help for myself. I've this second pc which was working just fine with cuda but then they stopped supporting Fermi GPU's and now whatever I do it's like there is a dead GPU inside the notebook. Saddest part is I was using this pc and I know its computing power could help me on extra render or cnn training works.
    Do you think this modding thing could be a solution to this situation? Like just to fool the softwares with the fake driver version but keep working with the standalone one... I don't know it's out of my scope. Thank all you guys in advance!

    Current working driver version:391.35
    Needed version:425.xx
    W10 x64

    Hello cyberdyne

    I needed your help. I tried the website you listed but I can’t find any drivers there that will work for me

    can you create an inf for a gt720m that comes with a dell rugged 7404 please?

    if youre looking for using the newest released driver with this card, that wont work.. this Card isnt supported anymore in the new Drivers. And adding the string wouldnt help really..

    so, from looking a bit the latest driver with you GPU supported is this one:
    425.31

    Its also stated in the PDF of the release notes form Nvidia. (newest drivers) on site 35.

    i dont think there is a way to use an up to date driver with your GPU..
    if this is what you wanted? i might have understood you wrong..

    You mea
    thanks for the reply. Actually, I wanted any driver that worked on windows xp x64 for a dell notebook GTX 720m and if someone already has the modded inf for that one or if anyone could help mod it and pass the inf for me.
    I can’t get the inf modification correct

    there is no fermi driver code in 471, a 630 using the GF architecture will not work with inf modding, nor can you force a 540m to operate on fermi by forcing it to install as a kepler 630.
