x64 Windows Geforce 4 Ti Driver Woe
January 9, 2007 4:25 PM   Subscribe

We installed XP x64, and can't find drivers for our video card, NVIDIA GeForce 4 Ti 4600. There are drivers for older cards and new cards, but not our card. A lot of the sites claiming to have the drivers are lying, and have maybe pasted in the inf for the 32-bit drivers by mistake. Is there any way I can make this work?

Maybe you already know this (I can't infer from your post), but possibly the inf file posted is supposed to be used in this way:

Try to install the latest (stock) nVidia x64 drivers. It will probably refuse to install saying your card is not compatible, but it will create a folder called c:\nvidia\somejunk. Then, go inside there, and substitute the .INF file for the one on the site. Then, go to the Device Manager, select your card, the driver tab, update driver, no, install from specific location, don't search, have disk, that folder. Your card should show on the list.

If the INF file is broken, you'll have to hack the stock .inf file yourself. I believe you only need to do this:

Add line:
%NVIDIA_NV25.DEV_0250.1% = nv4, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0250

Add line:
NVIDIA_NV25.DEV_0250.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4600"

Response by poster: Yay I found leetly hacksawed drivers.

Thanks qvantamon. Sorry, what I meant was they had pasted the listing of compatible cards on their website, taken from an inf, and what they had pasted was not the same as what was in the actual inf, and was probably taken from a different, 32-bit inf. I'll do your thing if I have problems with these drivers.

I know you found what you're looking for, but to anybody else out there, the ultimate NVIDIA driver resource is LaptopVideo2Go. This is for laptop and desktop Nvidia drivers. They have every driver imaginable, even non-released versions.

They also provide updated INF files to allow any card to work. This works because of the unified driver architecture of nvidia drivers/cards.
