Nvidia driver 268.44 does not work

Autocad pointed me to NVIDIA Driver Release 268.44 [8.17.12.6844] for Dell Laptops. when I downloaded it and installed it I get the error "This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware". I have  Dell M4600 runing windows 7 x64 with a Nvidia Quadro 2000M graphics card. I could not find the 268.44 driver on Nvidia's website? Is there another place to get this driver?

what version did you download?

 

if it wasn't 296.88 (latest), try this link;

It was the version that Autodesk certified. the version is 268.44 [8.17.12.6844] I know its not the latest but I wanted to get the driver that they suport so AutoCAD would stop telling me.

 

Name : NVIDIA Quadro 2000M
Manufacturer : NVIDIA
Chip set : Quadro 2000M
Memory : 1736 MB
Driver : 8.17.0012.6883

Your machine contains a 3D Device that is not certified.

As more graphics cards and 3D display drivers are tested, they are added to a list on the Autodesk website.

You can check for updates and download the latest certification list at any time. Run the 3DCONFIG command and click the Check for Updates button.

Current application driver: acaddm10.hdi

 

I purchased this machine because it was on Autodesks certified hardware list. I just cant seem to get the "Certified driver" to install

Found this post and I am having the same issue. Why does the 268.44 driver not want to install? It is supposed to be certified. Trying another does not answer the question. I have another already but it is not certified. Has anyone solved this problem? I have the Dell M4600 Win 7 64 bit with the Nvidia 2000M graphics card.
