So, I was trying to update the display driver for the GTX780M inside the computer to Driver 320.49 and every time it says it cannot find Compatable hardware. But, I download Nvidia Driver 311.48 it Installs with out incident. Can this computer not be updated through Nvidia? If I try to update through the driver its self it says that the newest version is already installed.
When you update the drivers, it's better to download and install the update and not run the update from the Nvidia control panel, or even a clean driver installation as explained in this article:

I can't always reply to PM's, if you need extra assistance visit:
If I try to update via the Nvidia Drivers built-in updater it does not find a new version. It is currently on 311.48 yet it refuses to find a new version. If i download Version 320.49 from the Nvidia website it Says I do not have Compatable hardware
my guess the reason it fails to update from NVidia panel is because its possibly due to being a BETA release and not a full release.... so it might not fully support dell's OEM cards yet....

I answer questions here, but
Your machine will try to block any drivers that are not signed by dell/alienware.
I have the exact same system and have been struggling to make updated drivers work. Essentially we will have to wait till dell/alienware sign some new drivers. there are ways around this but its a huge pain in the but..the best solution is to put pressure on dell/alienware to test and sign some new drivers fro these machines, let me know if you find a solution that works after a reboot.
