i know how u guys feel...
i'm having the same problem and i think their solution is wrong !!!
i opened it up and it said that the file nvlddmkm.sys CANNOT be run in DOS mode...
which is one of the steps in the solution
that is the reason why it always says "cannot open file input" or something like that.
i'm pretty fustrated that i just got my laptop and it is having this problem =[
plz come up with a new solution because obviously this isn't the right one.

JUST GIVING U GUYS A HEAD'S UP !!!

hope this saved u time because i already wasted mine !!! >={

@Nancyyyy
I think you are doing something wrong. You shouldn't be in DOS. You
should still be in Vista.
Go to start, and in the search box type "cmd" (without quotes) and then
right click "cmd" and click "Run as administrator"
after the window comes up you type "expand.exe
C:\Windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sy_
C:\Windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys" (without quotes)

all of this is done after copying the required files as stated in the
first post

When the expansion is complete, copy
the new nvlddmkm.sys to windows/system32/drivers and restart the computer.

Wheres the new nvlddmkm.sys?

Just thought I'd let everyone who is getting the "Cannot open output file" error message the solution I found.

Vista is really tight when it comes to running things as admisitrator, so when you open a normal command prompt, you aren't set as administrator (even when your set to administrator for the rest of the system). That's why you get the message.

When you go to open the command prompt, instead of double clicking it, right click it and choose "run as administrator". Then follow the rest of the steps as stated.

Didn't fix the initial problem in our case, but hopefully it will for some of you :)

Good info Lissa but I think Vista's admin system is good because it sets it
"tight" as default first off and you control the relaxation of those
controls to others. This is a steal off Linux who have always done that and
there you use the sudo release.

first of all try the fix above in safemode no account control in safemode
and your running as admin so you shouldnt get any error messages unless your
not following his instructions! Second theres a hotfix available from
microsoft addressing this issue unfortunatly none have fixed my problem. But
maybe it will help some of you!
