 UPDATE 2007-01-27: ASUS also released this driver. Our driver merged with ASUS and reuploaded..... again

UPDATE 2007-01-26: TOSHiBA released this driver a third time. Again it's identical, except that there's an additional NVIV.INF included, so added/merged this mobile INF to the original driver and reuploaded.

UPDATE 2007-01-23: TOSHiBA rereleased this driver with only a new NVCO.INF in it, so added/merged this mobile INF to the original driver and reuploaded.

VISTA driver that supports ("Windows Vista Ready" Desktop GPUs) starting with the GeForce FX 5xxx series.
Driver is again a Nightly Build according to modes.txt
This is the first VISTA driver released with only one INF plus it's an Reference INF which supports and is optimized for mobile NV GPUs exclusively.

Sony has to release new utilities for the hotkeys, that has nothing to do with the Nvidia drivers...

Out of curiosity, has Nvidia brought the brightness control back to the control panel that they removed in 97.52? I really need it as Sony hasnt released hotkey drivers for Vista.

We might be talking about different keys...I'm referring to the fn key and the key that switches between VGA, VGA+DVI, and DVI Only...it's fn+F7 key...

I wouldn't have guessed that was Sony's bag because different versions of the NVIDIA driver give me more or less functionality.

For example, the old driver which came with the laptop for XP gave me all three modes, v88.61 gives me only VGA mode, 96.33 gives me none. 97.46 gave me all three, but didnt actually support the switch (when i released the keys nothign changed).

97.54 give me none...I have to use the NVIDIA control panel to switch to my external monitor, which is connected through the docking station...

Am I wrong in thinking that this is an NVIDIA driver thing?

This is weird, can't get the resolution of 1152 x 864 in the 97.54 build, going back to 97.52 lets me have many more resolution options...

Though the vendor ID is different, I like that I can install these drivers on my Gateway without using the modded INF. Does the modded INF still have any tangible benefits in this case?

Oh yeah, for brightness control, there are several things to deal with:
  • BIOS has to support ACPI Video control methods for brightness control (google "ACPI in Windows Vista"), so look for an update from the manufacturer.
  • Video driver has to support ACPI methods for brightness control (it does.).
  • Brightness control should be in Windows Mobility Center, not NVIDIA Control Panel.

I have to hit power button to put into full standby and then wake up to get display on

I dont know if this is a nvidia problem or sony problem?

It's an nVidia Problem - I had the same issue on my Toshiba Satellite M30.

Here's another question: Has anyone managed to get DualView to work on Vista yet? Its bugging me that I can't use my S-Video output to watch DVDs....

Yep you're wrong, the Fn key just doesn't work with the required utilities (which should be available when Vista becomes public, by the end of january)

As for me, none of the keys work in Vista (except the volume buttons). Guess you'll have to wait till they're available or stay using XP for a little longer time (just like me) :)

Dell drivers are 97.46 and support OpenGL, alas!

There are no extra functions within the control panel, though, such as powermizer, overclock controls, etc.

They do seem stable and fine, but the screen flickers quite a bit using Aero; I mean when photos are loaded and the such. Personally, I'd say that other drivers are more stable.

So far I've appreciated the 97.54 the best. Going to try out the 97.52 and have a chance with Toshiba's set.

Thanks for the info...at least I can use the NVIDIA Control Panel to switch between the laptop and the external display...so, I'm sticking with Vista.
