With this INF I've noticed that there has been in an improvement in "painting" windows and dialogue boxes in the Windows GUI itself. If you own a Quadro4 700 GoGL, then give this INF a try. Also, with the 8x.xx driver set, nVidia seems to have listened to us and fixed the Black & White TV-Out issues that we seemed to have been having in the past.
You can also access the new control panel from this driver by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting "NVIDIA Control Panel".
Coolbits has not been enabled, however if you would like to, it has just been disabled by default for this INF. Just go to the area called "Coolbits" and change it to a value of 3 instead of 1. Then just save and reinstall.
Side-Band Addressing has also been disabled. If you want to turn it back on, just change this line within the INF and reinstall the driver:
HKR,, EnableAGPSBA,[tab][/tab][tab][/tab][tab][/tab] %REG_DWORD%, 0to
HKR,, EnableAGPSBA,[tab][/tab][tab][/tab][tab][/tab] %REG_DWORD%, 1
**Updated to version 1.2 & 1.4 respectively (see below for description): Original Dell INF with Omega Performance Tweaks, Extra Options, and a more thorough uninstall process. Thank you to everyone here at the www.laptopvideo2go.com community for helping me on this.
1.02c: Fix PowerMizer was not enabled. Set NoPages to 0
1.03c: Added support for nvhwvid.dll file. As well as the nvgfx.dll file from Larry's INF. Dell used to use this file...
1.03d: Made it compatible with 71.89's (Everything is really the same, just the "[version]" is changed)
1.04: Ready'ed INF for the 77.72's driver set. However, do be careful, as these drivers still cannot display powermizer settings conrrectly. Also, there has been a report from Larry that these drivers keep flipping into clone mode when trying to set the gamma.
1.05: Updated INF for new nVidia WHQL'ed 77.77's
1.05a: Cleaned up some install routines so there isn't a nvcplins.dll error during install.
1.1g: Completely revised INF this is for the new 8x.xx driver set only.
1.1h: Added support for "DualViewAllow2ndViewAsPrimary" as Bill requested
1.1i: Added SmartDimmer support to driver. Let me know how it is (Special thank you to Pieter and over @ TweaksRus.com Anonymous poster)
1.1j: Removed SmartDimmer, as it does not apply to our cards and does not work either. If you would like to reenable SmartDimmer, remove the ";" in front of the "EnableBrightnessControl". Changed a few settings for system stability. Hibernate and Standby seems to be working consistently now.
1.2: "EnableAGPSBA" has been disabled due to stability issues when running on battery.
1.4: Cleaned up code and added 83.90 driver INF which inculdes "sedona" (new control panel) support. Version 1.4 is just for driver set
