Nvidia GT525m not being detected


Recommended Posts

so, i just bought and installed GTA IV on my laptop (Dell Inspiron N5110 i7 with Windows 7 32bit)

It runs and all, but the graphics doesn't load

Here is what it looks like,

My laptop has Nvidia GeForce GT 525m (1 GB) and Intel® HD Dedicated Graphics

The problem seems to be that my Nvidia is not being detected.. in the game display settings it only shows 59MB as my graphics memory, and doesn't let me change any variables.. sad.gif


How do i make my graphics card visible to the game?

I have tried -norestrictions, -nomemrestrict and -dx9 .. disn't help

Disabling/Uninstalling the dedicated graphics gave me horrible resolution, and GTAIV didn't even start that way..

I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics card, with no help.


From other forums i found that Forceware driver could work.. but since i cannot afford much bandwidth, if i want to download 60mb, i want to be sure it works..


Any help is appreciated..

When dealing with this problem there are no guarantees. The game simply refuses to run properly one some systems. You can try using the latest GPU driver, but there are no guarantees it will work.
