    After a long wait after launching the .exe I get "NvCplSetupInt: error: Could not create file "C:\temp\NVIDIA\ControlPanelInstallerTemp\NVPrxy32.dll" Access is denied.

    Nevermind I got it! Put the file in Display.Driver and then ran the setup.exe in the International folder but still get the error saying the hardware is not detected when running setup.exe

    I would just like to say thank you so much for your help but sadly after following your instructions very carefully I got stuck on 3) Driver Installation: step 5. Whenever I ran the setup.exe it would say it could not detect the graphics hardware. I made sure I followed the steps carefully and tried 3-4 times. At this point I'm thinking of taking the laptop to a computer store for them to figure it out. I'd like to say thank you one last time and if you have any other suggestions on how to fix this blockade that would be great!

    Thanks for your time.

    The 770 is not listed under display adapters.

    There is an unknown device listed: its hardware ID is:

    ACPI\CPL002
    *CPL002

    Sorry for the late reply, have been really busy lately and frustrated that this hasnt been able to work.

    Thanks for your help.
