    So i bought a Touchsmart IQ526 Series PC, it's the all in one computers.
    I have a NVIDIA 9300M GS graphics card and i'm trying to update it! Right now the current version is 198.19.
    I've been trying to update the graphics driver to 260.99 (http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us) but it keeps giving me an error saying the it is not compatible with hardware! I've been updating drivers from the device manager list but it keeps saying it is up to date. The purpose for me to do this is for the purpose of gaming. I know this PC isn't made for gaming but the specs are able to handle it.

    So anyways, please if anyone can help me out here i would be grateful. It just seems impossible finding the driver for it.
    Can you even update drivers on a Touchsmart IQ526?

    Here is the hardware IDS

    Those are the vendor and device codes for the NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS.

    What version of Windows are you using, and is it the 32-bit or 64-bit version?

    According to its support site and product specifications section, it comes with Windows Vista Home Premium SP1(64-bit) pre-installed. If you're still using that operating system, have you upgraded it to SP2?

    I noticed at the NVIDIA drivers site that the GeForce 9300M GS is listed in the notebook/laptop section and not in the desktop section. I would've thought an all-in-one computer falls in the desktop category, but I guess I'm wrong.
