    Old laptop with driver problems HELP

    Okay I must have tried everything now, and I simply cannot get my nvidia graphics card to work, but here I am hoping that one of you guys can help me with my old laptop.

    The specs:
    Clevo P170EM:
    Windows 10 Pro x64 (not with anniversary update)
    Intel HD Graphics 3000
    Nvidia Geforce GTX 580M:
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558&REV_A1
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&CC_030000
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&CC_0300

    I am used to modding the INF when I updated the graphics card on windows 7, but with windows 10 everything is just more complicated and troublesome.

    I have a Clevo therefore I am modding nvcvi.inf

    Tried drivers:
    353.30 / 368.22 / 368.39 / 368.81 / 368.95 / 372.54
    I would like to use the newest official driver (in bold)

    I know I have to restart into forced disabled driver signature mode.

    The installation goes fine but after I restart as the driver requests, both video cards return with error 43, I can then disable and enable both without errors but they are still not functioning.

    Any brains here with a solution?

    (No comments about replacing components just because they are old)

    Are you sure you have modded the drivers for notebooks?

    You can zip all inf files from needed drivers and post a link to archive - so that other gurus can peek into them.

    I go to geforce.com/drivers and manually select the gpu 580M and download the drivers, so it is for notebooks.

    368.81_inf-files.zip dropbox

    I have not edited these inf files, so if anybody wants to try please help me :D

    PS. I have to make 5 posts before I can post a link.
    5 posts incoming

    Assume that Geforce GTX 560M is the nearest card to your one 580M.

    Inf-files with entries for 560M:
    nvaki.inf, nvami.inf, nvcvi.inf, nvdmi.inf, nvmii.inf, nvtdi.inf.

    For example in nvaki.inf we see:
    Code:
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.84BA.1043% = Section004, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_84BA1043 
    
    [Strings]
    NVIDIA_DEV.1251.84BA.1043 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M"
    
    We are trying to mimic 580M as 560M so we add two entries:
    Code:
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.84BA.1043% = Section004, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_84BA1043 
    [b]%NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section004, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558[/b]
    
    [Strings]
    NVIDIA_DEV.1251.84BA.1043 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M"
    [b]NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M"[/b]
    
    Problem # 1 - one file to modify or all of them.
    Problem # 2 - in several inf-files there are several entries for 560M which refer to different sections of settings. For example in nvami.inf:
    Code:
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.13B7.1043% = Section002, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_13B71043 
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.204A.1043% = Section058, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_204A1043 
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.204B.1043% = Section012, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_204B1043 
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.2100.1043% = Section059, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_21001043 
    
    Btw, what is the latest version of drivers where 580M is present? May be check them for the info.

    I have tried the newest driver 372.54
    no mods = Not finding compatiable driver.
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0...14310]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section038, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558 = Error code 43
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section040, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558 = Error code 43
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section042, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558 = Error code 43
    _______________________________________________________

    Problem 1 = I only edit nvcvi.inf because it is addressing Clevo (Sager & other re-brands) which is my brand.

    Problem 2 = I don't know what to do about?

    No current driver installed, I don't about the latest version with 580M present? Anyway I can check that?

    Download drivers and search inf-files for DEV_1211.

    Edit: nvcvi.inf in 368.81 has these sections for 560M:
    Code:
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.5102.1558% = Section021, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_51021558 
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.7100.1558% = Section021, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_71001558 
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.7101.1558% = Section020, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_71011558 
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.7200.1558% = Section019, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_72001558 
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1251.8000.1558% = Section019, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1251&SUBSYS_80001558

    using the newest driver 372.54 with these inf files:
    372.54_inf-files.zip dropbox

    I look in nvcvi.inf and under the section called "[NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0...14310]" I find these sections for 580M:
    Code:
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.0270.1558% = Section038, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_02701558

    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7100.1558% = Section042, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71001558 
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7101.1558% = Section040, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71011558 
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7200.1558% = Section038, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_72001558 
    and under "[NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0]" I find these sections for 580M:
    Code:
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.0270.1558% = Section037, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_02701558

    Try to insert lines in bold.

    Edit: If they will not succeed then try Section038, Section042 and Section037, Section041 respectively.

    I have now tried the 3 combinations:

    Code:
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0...14310]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section038, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section037, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558
    
    Code:
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0...14310]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section040, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section039, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558
    
    Code:
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0...14310]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section042, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section041, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558
    
    All 3 results in the installation succeeds but after the restart both graphic cards are stopped with error code 43.

    That`s why I will never buy notebook as a home rig. And will never buy a notebook with switchable graphics.

    Well I didn't know it would be so troublesome when I bought it, nobody I knew had a high performance laptop.

    Any other solution ?

    If you really need notebook sell this one and buy a new with powerful (one and only) dedicated videocard (and processor without integrated GPU).
    Or spam OEM (Clevo?) with letters with a prayer on new version of drivers (both for iGPU and dGPU).

    Edit: I was exactly in the same situation several years ago. I bought an HP notebook with Intel`s iGPU and AMD`s dGPU. After a week of vain attempts to install newest AMD drivers I sold it. Next notebook was full AMD with dual graphics (APU + dGPU). It had no troubles with drivers but games were a stutter fest. That notebook I gave to my mom and now I have normal tower rig.

    I am not selling nor buying a new right now, I have installed modded drivers many times on this laptop, so it should be possible to do again. Ill try to install the anniversary update on Monday and then Ill try updating again

    I have just upgraded to windows 10 Pro Anniversary update and installed driver 372.54 using:
    Code:
    [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0...14310]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558% = Section038, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1211&SUBSYS_71021558
    [Strings]
    NVIDIA_DEV.1211.7102.1558 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M"'
    
    IT WORKS :D
