    Hi Guys, just a question about this gadget. Why does it cannot detect my GPU? (Nvidia GTX 460m). The Graphic adapter is blank not showing my video card. :( Is there something I need to do aside from installing this software?

    Here is my screenshot of my gadget:

    Kindly help. TIA.

    The last update of this gadget was May 12 of last year. Any GPU released after that date is not going to be supported.

    Yeah, that one is outdated. Try this GPU Meter Gadgets, although it doesn't seem to work in my case where the only option is my integrated GPU. Maybe it'll be Intel friendly.

    Actually, I just downloaded the gadget and it's reading my 460m fine, so must not be working for another reason. Maybe driver, hardware vid, or I dunno?

    Ohh okay, i thought I did something wrong when installing it. Thanks guys for the inputs.

    EDIT: @dkillone I don't know why the gadget doesn't read my GPU, although I've tried another software (CPUID Hardware Monitor Pro) which reads both the temperature of my CPU and GPU.

    I see you have a G73SW as well, weird it works for me and not you. However, I wouldn't sweat it, I prefer to use programs such as Hardware Monitor, so since it is reading in there, you should be fine. Just curious though, what driver are you on? I'm running the 275.27beta drivers.

    Hi man, the Nvidia drivers that I'm currently using is the latest found in their website, I believed it's the - 275.33.
