Hi guys , i have a question !
i recently got a Dell Inspiron 3542 with a Nvidia 820m gpu , i5 4210u and 4 gb
the laptop is in good condition but my issue is the driver support ... if i try to update the gpu drivers using the vanila ( from website ) drivers,
the drivers couldn t recognize the gpu , showing this : There is no compatible hardware .
as i researched on the internet , is there a way to mod the OEM drivers to actually get the latest drivers (425.31 is the last driver on nvidia website)
( curent installed version is 352.86 or something ) .
Sorry if my question is dumb and sorry for my bad english . Thank you for your help !

oem drivers ? no you are using normal nvidia drivers just update them

nope , those won t work , as i mentioned , normal drivers says that There is no compatible hardware .
i m using these drivers right now :
https://www.dell.com/support/home/ro/ro/robsdt1/product-support/product/inspiron-15-3542-laptop/drivers
. I read somewhere that the chip is manufactured by Nvidia but the pcb and other thing are dell s property and that s why there are OEM drivers . I wish i could update the drivers like usual ...
