Shut down your PC, remove power and peripheral components.

Install the Nvidia gfx card. You may wish to clear CMOS while the PC case is off.

Connect monitor cable to the new card. Refit peripheral components and power cable.

Fire up the PC. Windows will recognize the new gfx card and install the drivers. Wait for this to complete.

If you cannot see anything on the monitor. Reconnect the monitor cable to the onboard gfx chip. Go into BIOS and disable the onboard gfx chip. Shut down the PC. Connect the monitor cable to Nvidia card again and fire up the PC.

Download the new drivers from the Nvidia support site. Then run the big .exe file you downloaded from Nvidia. Follow the on-screen instructions.

This may seem obvious to most, BUT DO NOT install NVidia driver if you are not installing one of their cards, it is not compatible with the onboard graphics. (If this is obvious or redundant, then I an sorry)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I could not imagine he/she wanted to install just the Nvidia drivers for Intel on-board gfx chip.

Therefore, I tried to explain how he/she could install the drivers for a new (assumed) gfx card.

I was not trying to be insulting and I hope no one took it that way, but I try to assume nothing.

In case you haven't noticed, it's a 540M (<-- M for mobile, as in laptop card!)

I also have a brand new laptop with this card in, but the drivers aren't yuet available on the nvidia website!

Where and how can I find/install drivers for this card (GeForce GT540M)?
