Desperate for help! gtx 970m Cant install drivers!

Recommended Posts

Hi I joined this site because of this discussion here: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/8360-need-serious-help-in-installing-driver-for-970m-on-an-alienware-m15x/

neither of the links work anymore and I cant find any that do on various google searches. Also people keep telling saying they just had to modify the ini file. I am not as understanding of that subject as they are. Can someone please tell me where I can find this ini file?

I was able to download a file from someones one drive link from a youtube video but that didnt work. it is the NIVIDIA 355.60 and it says no valid hardware detected

(UPDATE)

PLEASE HELP ME, I have downloaded so many files and tried so many things. I just bought a $200 paper weight that over heats because my computer isn't turning on the fan to protect it!

forget this it never worked I actually installed windows 10 and found my drivers from here https://www.driveridentifier.com/scan/nvidia-geforce-gtx-970m-driver/download/257769303/61D8F062D82443028BE85D00438365DB/PCI\VEN_10DE%26DEV_13D8

for any future searchers I had to install manually by going to device manager selecting standard vga device then right clicking and selecting properties, next I clicked the driver tab and then update driver. Then I choose browse my computer then let me pick, next have disc, then in the drop down menu I selected browse and went to my display.driver folder then nvaoi and clicked on the 3rd 970m driver down. it said installing gtx 980m driver then my screen went black and when it came back I checked to find that my device manager now said gtx970.
