    I have to do this procedure with any card other than 8400? Isn't just plug and play? I have not done it before. The model I watch on ebay is 9300M GS 512 DDR2.

    You need this procedure only if laptop dont recognize or card is NOT Acer branded.

    The 9300M GS is an Acer card judging by the model number (Acer's model) which does not guarantee that it will work anyway.
    Upgrading MXM card is rarely plug & play.

    So except the new drivers, maybe it will need flashing, right? Is there a step by step guide? I want to see the "how to" to judge if I am willing to do it. If it is something difficult I will leave it aw it is until it catches fire. :p Which cards are known to work without BIOS flashing?

    After some modding to the driver I can confirm that GeForce 9600M GT 512MB GDDR3 (from Acer) runs for TravelMate 6593G.


    Last nVidia driver:

    GeForce 341.92 Driver
    Version 341.92
    Release Date Tue Nov 10, 2015
    Operating System Windows 10 64-bit
    Language English (US)
    File Size 269.84 MB
    can be easily modded to work on win 10 in the TravelMate 6593G.

    Hello everyone,

    I have an Acer Aspire 7720g. My graphics card (9300m GS) died, so I got a 9600m GT 512mb DDR3. As soon as I installed it, the display was working ok. I did a clean windows 7 x64 install with no problems. Display worked fine with the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter driver. Problems started when I tried to install the latest nvidia driver (341.92). My card is not recognized, so the installation cannot proceed.
    I searched for some older drivers from laptop2go site, based on my device id, and it pointed me to version 285.86. Drivers installed fine, but I get a black screen after 1-2 minutes in windows desktop.
    My device ID:
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0649&SUBSYS_056710DE&REV_A1
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0649&SUBSYS_056710DE

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    @Konstantinos Charitos download the latest driver; replace listdevices.txt in main driver folder, and nvaci.inf in display.driver folder with files from this post (don't forget to remove .TXT from the latter filename!), and it will install. Use these files whenever you need to install Nvidia drivers on this machine.

    Thank you very much Starlight5!

    I already modified them myself, using a post I found in another forum... And it worked!

    I'll try with your files too ;-)

    Thanks again for your time and effort :)
