Dell ,7900GS, Vista & How about some updated drivers?


Recommended Posts


My laptop operates OK, but there is some jerkeiness and I can't play some games with this old driver (GalCiv2 for example).

I downloaded the 158.43 drivers for my card (I think this is the correct driver). When I try and install I am told

"Can't find any drivers compatable with you hardware ......................"

Is this the correct driver? The last lines of the inf file are:


; Non-Localizable Strings

REG_SZ = 0x00000000

REG_MULTI_SZ = 0x00010000

REG_EXPAND_SZ = 0x00020000

REG_BINARY = 0x00000001

REG_DWORD = 0x00010001

REG_SZ_APPEND = 0x00010008

; Localizable Strings


NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0191.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX"

NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0193.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS"

NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0194.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra"

NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0400.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS"

NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0402.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT"

NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0421.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT"

NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0422.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS"

NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0423.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8300 GS"

NVUninstall.desc = "NVIDIA Display Driver"

DiskID1 = "NVIDIA Windows Vista Driver Installation Disk 1"

can this be modified so this driver will work?

Dell has not been forthcomming.
