I had windows 7 on my computer and it ran Nvidia graphics drivers no problem for years. So along comes Windows 10 and it deactivates my Nvidia drivers and now my computer cannot detect drivers, so I reinstalled windows 7 and it wont even let me install graphics drivers.

My laptop is pretty old and it is a bit frustrating because I have literally tried everything I can think of and read online to fix the problem but it just wont let me use Nvidia anymore, I can use the Intel chipset for graphics but it sucks and doesnt have the same settings or tweaks that Nvidia allowed me to squeeze out of games.

I have no OpenGL or anything... Anyways any help would be appreciated on a dinosaur laptop.

It says on my laptop : Nvidia 310m Cuda 1gb , Intel Pentium etc , I can provide more info if needed.

I have been trying to fix this for months and cannot afford a new computer or laptop right now so squeezing it a bit more with th Nvidia drivers is all I can do.

Model :ASUS A52J ver: K52JC

I had a problem like this with my old laptop where it was using newer nvidia drivers but they weren't supporting opengl 2.0 so very few things would run and mostly run badly.

I had to install an old driver from the nvidia site manually instead of with the automated thingy or using the newer driver package. It was garbage for like a year and now it works again. I finally figured that out like late last month.

In the past I've had to go to Asus website to get the drivers initially installed, then do the update via the nvidia control panel. It never seems to detect them by default though.

How? step by step because everytime I try to do it my computer says 'no' and wont install them.
