What video card do you have, what operating system are you using, and can you link us to the driver you are trying to use?

Oh crap, I didn't see that it was a laptop Go card. You had the right drivers initially.

You probably can't get the drivers from nVidia. Look on your laptop manufacturer's website. What is your laptop model?

The GeForce M series and GeForce Go series notebook GPUs use drivers that have been customized by the notebook manufacturers to support hot key functions, power management functions, lid close and suspend/resume behavior. NVIDIA has worked with some notebook manufacturers to provide notebook-specific driver updates, however, most notebook driver updates must come from the notebook manufacturer. Additionally, the desktop GeForce graphics drivers will not install on Geforce M series and Quadro M series notebook GPU's.
