Maybe that the standart driver dint come with the cuda driver, the drivers of the nvidia driver site have the cuda, physX and that sorta stuff incluided so try it out!

I'm not going to knock you for your attempts at mining, but keep in mind:
  • Mining on a laptop makes things a lot hotter than they should be
  • Nvidia isn't efficient for mining
  • CPU mining isn't efficient for mining either

It probably isn't worth the risk that could be done to your new laptop.

With that said, good luck!

If you love me, you'd give me a Satoshi!

+1 to what legoluman said

CPU mining is wasted time
Nvidia mining is more or less wasted time too.
