i am at a loss here. i think i have downloaded every driver nvidia has.none of the seem to work. the problem is i have an asus laptop with an intel chipset and processor. asus dosen't have a driver for my card in 64 bit. i installed windows 7 64.

asus n51vn-a1
Processor:Intel T9600/2.80GHz/Core 2 Duo
Processor FSB: 1066MHz
Processor Cache: 6MB L2 Cache
Intel Centrino 2 Mobile Technology
GPU/VPU: NVIDIA GeForceGT 240M 1GB DDR3 Dedicated /cuda/psyx
Memory Size: 4GB ddr2

from what i'm reading because my chipset and processor are intel nvidia drivers are not compatable????
my games are wavy looking when i scroll back and forth or up and down. i play the sims 3 and it looks terrible.
i literally have 6 different drivers on my desktop and don't no which one to install.
i've installed 3 others but i dont even know at this point which ones they were.
i can tell you the drivers i have downloaded on my desktop if that helps, or maybe my card is no good???

help please

that driver didn't work, and i've actually tried that one before. i have a folder that i named random drivers that i have already tried. i'm thinking going backwards as far as release date.
i have no idea. it worked fine at first. then i did an update. the problem is that i do not know for sure if this started after the update. so the question remains, driver or graphics card????
it looks really bad when i scroll right to left, but also up and down. just not quite as bad. its wavy looking and has like a delay or skips. its hard to discribe. someone else looked at it and said it almost looked like heat when it comes off of hot blacktop. its really hard on the eyes.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
