[HELP] Can I get MX130 working under Windows XP through .inf modding?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I need help with .inf modding.

I'm planning to purchase a DELL Inspiron 15 5584 (which has a MX130) for college use and some light gaming here and there. And yesterday I found out that MX130 is a Maxwell-based GPU, whose architecture was the last one supporting Windows XP.

After some research, I did find out that MX130's chip is the same as Geforce 940MX (N16S-GTR-S-A2), which DELL added support up to 368.81 driver. So I downloaded 368.81-desktop-winxp-32bit-international and extracted its files using 7-Zip and opened nvdmi.inf (which has DELL's OEM hardware IDs). In there, 940MX has 6 variants using the same SectionID, 019.

So, my question is: Can I get it working under Windows XP using "Section019" as SectionID for MX130? I'm attaching a GPU-Z print (that the seller sent to me) containing all specs, including Device ID and such. Please, I need help!
