    SOLVED: NVIDIA GeForce 310M not detected

    Hello, I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit I just installed on a newly bought laptop with a graphics card mentioned above, but it is not detected by the OS. and by not detected I mean it does not show up in device manager at all. I just have Intel (R) HD Graphics listed in there. I've tried downloading nvidia drivers, using the nvidia detector applet, but none see it. How would I go about solving this problem?

    Is the display currently correct? Are things bold & changable when you go to view Screen Resolution? What is the resolution, currently?

    I'm currently running on the integrated Intel one, so everything in screen resolution (which is currently 1280x1024, I use an external monitor) works.

    Code:
    lspci -vv | grep -i nvidia 
    doesn't show anything in ubuntu live. at this point I'm not even sure there's a card anymore, although the vendor's website says so.

    Has the use of the external vid card been enabled in the BIOS??
