No More 3D Vision Discover with 3D Vision 195.39 BETA Drivers on a Laptop

October 31st, 2009 · 7 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


It seems that Nvidia is already preparing on a driver level for the first 3D Vision capable laptops with Asus G51J being one of the first series with a limited edition model that should be equipped with a 120Hz LCD screen. Or at least that is the hint I got after installing the 3D Vision 195.39 BETA Drivers on a laptop with a normal display and tried to enable the 3D Vision Discover mode on the laptop (the one for the anaglyph glasses). Unfortunately I was presented with the above error and was unable to activate Stereoscopic 3D regardless the mode, as I cannot go the choosing a mode from the control panel. I wonder if I’ll keep getting this error message if I connect an external 120Hz LCD to the laptop, as the laptop screen will still not be qualified for 3D Vision…?

Anyway it is back to the previous 3D Vision drivers version as it seems that these new beta drivers still have some issues and I need to have the 3D Vision Discover mode enabled on that laptop for demonstrations on how the anaglyph glasses work and what to expect from them “for free” compared to the 3D Vision shutter glasses.

    The above issue appeared in the 195.39 3D Vision drivers… I’m not talking about having issues with the video drivers, as this is clearly due to the 3D vision ones.

    Hi Bloody,

    Hope your well.

    I’ve installed the new CD 195. drivers and it now detects my VS PJD6211, and displays the “3D Ready Logo” in the Nvidia control panel.

    It does not state the correct projector name though, but some other VS PJ, 5### ?

    It does however, cure the problem of having to wear my glasses inverted though.

    Happy days.

    This is good news… I hope that soon the 6211/6221 will also be certified and supported officially from Nvidia, as they are still not…

    I have got this error with the modded 191.03 and 191.07 on my XPS M1730 too.
    The strange was: when I connected my Samsung HDTV(LE37B650 – not 3D capable) then I was able to enable 3D-Vision-Discover(with disabled Laptop-Panel). But in clone-mode it didn’t work too.
    It seems that Anaglyph-Mode on Laptops is dying. Last working one is 190.38 .

    “I wonder if I’ll keep getting this error message if I connect an external 120Hz LCD to the laptop, as the laptop screen will still not be qualified for 3D Vision…?”

    Could you try? ;-)

    There was no problem enabling 3D Vision when a 120Hz external display was connected with only the external display enabled… The whole problem was that you could not enable the 3D Vision discover mode anymore with the above drivers and that mode is available and working with a pair of anaglyph glasses on any normal display.
