I wanted to update my video drivers, to see if that would resolve an earlier problem(involving Steam, and the Torchlight Demo). It was easy finding the Driver I wanted thanks to Nvidia's site. found it, downloaded it, went to install it. It would get about a third of the way and then stop displaying this in the window:

Component Version Status
PhysX System Software 260.99 Not Installed
Graphics Driver 260.99 Failed
3D Vision Driver 260.99 Not Installed.

~~~~
I then searched the web, found a couple suggestions: uninstall it, use Driver Sweeper, then reinstall it, after necessary reboots.

Nothing helps.
I've been working on this for about 5 hours now:(. I would greatly appreciate any help you could offer. If you need more info, ask.

Thanks!

Bit of a slow reply, sorry, been away over the weekend.

Have you tried the most up to date drivers from Asus themselves?

Just put G71GX in the top left hand box and his search, then select g71gx or g71gx(bestbuy) dependant on which yours is, select your operating system and show all. I would make sure that all those drivers are up to date with the Asus sets first. On some occasions I have had problems using GPU manufacturer drivers on soem laptops.
