  • GeForce Go 7800 GTX, Clevo M590K: TV shows only scan lines when enabled.
  • GeForce Go 7800/7900 GTX: Rainbow Six: Lockdown has glowing screen borders when application antialiasing is enabled.
  • GeForce Go 7800 GTX: Windows Media Player 9 audio pauses when switching between windowed and full-screen mode on the second display.

    A known workaround is to manually add the mode 1280x960 from NVIDIA's Custom Timings control panel and then continue to select the resolution needed.

I'm downloading the driver now... on the paper it seems to be the best option for recent cards... 6x00 and 7x00.

Fabrice, did you manage to receive a correct packed file from NV FTP? The filedate is still 19.06.2006 aka hasn't changed since 08th of July and that's the last time i tried to download.

I´m afraid NVIDIA has changed there Installation Mode... No visible INF File anymore?

But perhaps it´s possible to generate a special INF-File for the new 91.33 Driver and Mobile GPU´s with the special Settings for Notebooks especially for Dualview with a second Display like the Settings in the 83.40 Mobile Driver from NVIDIA. I´m using this Driver on my Notebook, because all other INF-Files with all other Driver-Versions have got big Problems with DUAL-View in docked Modus and single View in undocked Modus.

There don´t recognise the second Display or switch the primary Display to the second Display. The Desktop get garbaged, because buildin Display has other resolution as the external Panel. Because of that I´ve patched the original INF-File in 83.40 for my own with the Vendor-ID of my GPU.

Does anybody know what are the Differences in the INF-File from NVIDIA in the 83.40 Mobile and the one served on this Site?

Greetings from Greven (Germany)...

The one that I downloaded is the classic EXE installer... no corruption or whatsoever... but I'm not sure we are talking about the same file.

You can effortless extract the .EXE with 7Zip for example. No INF inside and no international files even though the filename pretends to be international :) Maybe a look in hte data.cab will shed some light on this weird driver (first occurence since 200 or 300 drivers i've analyzed that the INF is missing)

Here is what is in the driver EXE...

Note that neither the latest WinRAR or 7-Zip appear to open the CAB file.

the .CABs can be opened with i6comp or WinPack 2.31 (the link for this tool is in the SU area... the thread where Pieter is describing his WLAN modding story)

Getting mysterious now. I've never seen *.ips files in NV drivers and elsewhere, at least i cant remember.

The .ips files also appear in other CABs that I have (not just NV Cabs)

It must be part of language support for setup.exe

Oh that makes sense, so these are the InstallShield localization files for the setup procedure... while the actual NV localization files and the INF have disappeared in this peticular driver release :)

Thanks for the headups. Downloading... will repack our driver in a while even though it's fairly complete and usable out of the box with Pieter's modded INF.

Glad they care about enthusiast mobile endusers :)

First time ever that NVIDIA officially released a mobile driver from DELL :)

A binary compare results in: identical 100%. No need to reupload.

This is really promising. The last legendary driver concerning speed, stability and mobile features was 44.68 from DELL also, is this the successor?

Well I doubt that Dell is really modifing the source code of the drivers... they used one build that came right from nVidia... and tweaked the INF at best. The mother of ForceWare is nVidia. :)

*opening the toolbox*Well it looks like this is the candidate for Fabricication.

But first thing first... I need to reactivate the CAPTCHA on my blog.

But it's the same INF :) That's what's astonishing. No nv4_disp.inf this time. _All_ official NV drivers come with an nv4_disp.inf or some kind of derivate, but _not_ the 4digit OEM nvXX.INF

It like you buy an Rolls Royce and Emily is missing, but a BMW badge instead on your engine hood.

Dell is not modifiying the source code, they modifiy the INF from an adjusted driver they got from NVIDIA, that'S correct.

It's logical to see one manufacturer use the INF settings from it's biggest mobile graphic chip integrator.

Not so far ago... In my StereoVision days... I used the graphic driver and stereo drivers from Elsa. :) I still have a 19" CRT that allows me to see in 3D at my parents. :)
