Finaly decided to take Vista off my LG P300 after it blue screened on me.

Just finished a fresh install of 8.10, and the restricted nvidia drivers, both version 173 and version 177 fail to enable.

I don't know if there is a log file I can look in to help determine what the problem is.

Here is some detailed hardware specs if this makes any difference.
