343.22 Quadro FX 880M not supported?

If I use Nvidia’s search for the latest driver for Quadro FX 880M/Linux x64, it offers driver 343.22. Graphics card Quadro FX 880M from my Lenovo W510 is also listed as supported in driver details.

However, after installing newer driver, when booting notebook it says that card is not supported and suggests to use older driver 340.12. Is this card supported or we have a problem in newer driver?

Just to update the topic.

See Release Highlights for 343.22 driver at http://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/77844/en-us

“Removed support for G8x, G9x, and GT2xx GPUs, and motherboard chipsets based on them. Ongoing support for new Linux kernels and X servers, as well as fixes for critical bugs, will be included in 340.* legacy releases through the end of 2019.”

Yep, I saw that but I have Quadro FX Series for Notebooks, precisely Quadro FX 880M. I think that G8xx from Highlights is not related to this card, or am I wrong?

I can see that more people have this problem, but with different devices.


If you take a look here you will see that your Quadro FX 880M has a GT216 chip and seems to be almost identical to a GeForce GT 240M.

Thanks Lysius for clarification.
