your system clearly doesn't find your nvidia graphics.

Try doing what the message says.. go to the brands website and download the newest driver there, do not use windows update or another source.

If you hav dual cards, it's possible you have to assing the right card to the program after it's installed properly, mostly that.s right click the icon and pick it there.

Open your NVidia control panel and check the PhysX configuration.   Be sure that you either have the NVidia 610M card ennabled or that you have chosen AutoSelect.  Otherwise, your computer will default to the Intel chip.  BTW, that 610M card is a fairly low-level graphics card, so don't expect more than very low-quality graphics with it, even with current drivers.

The issue is with Nvidia Optimus not switching on the card when opening Second Life. This has certainly been a problem with SL residents using Nvidia cards in the past. Are you using the latest driver from Nvidia, not your laptop manufacturer's driver?

Use the Nvidia 'auto detect your gpu' feature on its website and follow the instructions to update the driver.

If you have updated the driver and Optimus still won't switch to the Nvidia card when opening Second Life, follow the tutorial on this website:

Oddly, there are some Maddy, e.g.

ASUS Laptop:
- intel i7-3630QM (with Intel HD4000 integrated graphics)
- GeForce 610M dedicated graphics with 2GB ram
- 8GM DDR3 RAM
- 1TB HDD

In overall terms as you say Maddy but the 610M has slightly better OpenGL performance than the Intel HD4000 (4.5 to 4.0) and Second LIfe runs on Open GL. Would that just about tip the balance in its favour with Second Life, especially if it is the 2GB 610M?
