Drivers for legacy Pavilion - Nvidia GT740m

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15-n225se Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi

 

I have a HP Pavilion 15-n023sa which I upgraded by replacing the system board with 737986-501 (effectively upgrading AMD A4-5000 APU to Intel i7-4500u + Nvidia GT740m) I guess you could also say I now have Pavilion 15-n225se with upgrade to touchscreen. I also moved the existing HDD to the cd drive slot using a caddy and installed a Crucial MX500 SSD in its place. I completely reinstalled Windows on the SSD and downloaded all the drivers from HP support site.

Performance is great now and everything works, except one thing, a usuable Nividia driver. The one provided by HP is too old for any modern software to use, however if I update it to the latest driver either using Windows update or from Nvidia site while the GPU can be used for a few minutes it inevitably blue screens.

 

Does anyone here remember the latest Driver for Nvidia Geforce GT740m that actually worked, or know of a solution?

 

Thank you for your help,

Alex

Hi, Alex:

 

I checked all of the HP notebooks that I know of that come with that model GPU, and the driver on your notebook's support page was the last one released by HP for the GT740M.

Wow, thanks for putting in the effort to check each product for me. I hadn't even thought of doing that.

There is no chance of getting a non HP driver to work for this is there?

You're very welcome.

 

Unfortunately, I doubt it since you have tried the GT740M driver from Nvidia.

 

Perhaps you can try one of the older versions between what HP has and the newest one available.
