    Hello! I've been trying to update my graphics drivers on my Windows partition on BootCamp, and I've been having some trouble. I have a late 2009 21.5 inch iMac running Lion and Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on BootCamp. I have an NVIDIA GeForce 9400. I went onto the NVIDIA website, went to the drivers section, and ran the automatic scan thing. It said that my current installed driver is 261.41 and that the latest update is version 306.97 WHQL. Clearly I'm very out of date and I would love to have my games run faster. I clicked the download button and downloaded the installer. I ran it, and it downloaded the files to C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\306.97\Win8_WinVista_Win7_ 64\English. Then after that it "Checked System Compatibility". And right away said "NVIDIA Installer cannot continue. The graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware." I've tried multiple times and got the same thing each time. I have no idea what to do. I've never done this before and am basically an idiot when it comes to graphics drivers. So if anyone could please help, that would be great!

    Thanks,
    Natie

    Go to nvidia.com and download the latest beta drivers for notebook. 310.55 I think, anyway they should work without problems
