    installing correct drivers/access to hardware?


    I have Windows 10 installed in a VM (Oracle VirtualBox). In device manager, most of the devices show up as generic.

    I downloaded the correct driver for my GTX980 video card. I tried installing it and it says "This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware." How can I make Windows 10 see the correct hardware I'm using? Is there a setting in VirtualBox or Windows itself?

    :)

  2. Connect Nokia 1680c-2 to PC

    @robertbrown



    Welcome to the forum!



    Have a look at this post:



    As it was never Nokia's intention for 1680Classic to be accessed this way, the issue is sometimes finding the correct "driver" for installation and use of acquired cable!

  3. N95 connect problem

    Update:

    I had a Vista as second boot system and it was not deleted (yet). In the Windows\inf map the drivers were still there and by going there for the drivers in the hardware install under XP the N95 was correctly installed and I had access to my phone again.

    Hopefully Nokia will correct the driver problem in pc suite.

    installing correct drivers/access to hardware?

    It doesn't work like that in a VM. The hardware is virtualized so Windows will see an emulated video adapter (and other virtualized devices) rather than the actual devices connected to the host (with the exception of the CPU).

    As your Windows 10 guest can't see the hardware, you can't use the driver as, as far as the Windows VM is concerned, your GTX980 isn't connected. See virtualbox.org View topic - VirtualBox FAQ

    The correct drivers to install are the VirtualBox guest additions - see Chapter*4.*Guest Additions
    If it doesn't automatically start the installation then double-click on Setup.exe once you have loaded the guest additions CD.

    I followed the instructions in the link you posted. I can now set the correct resolution for my display (1920x1080).
