excellent these worked perfect on my go 7950 gtx dell laptop. first drivers EVER to install and not give a BSOD either right at the end of install or on reboot. There has been no infinite loop errors with nv4_disp either. There was no need for modded inf since it supports all the mobile devices. Not sure where you found this but thanks a lot. Now I have something other than 94.23 drivers. Also a note for mobile uses this DOES improve Bioshock a fair bit. I was running it 1920X1200 medium settings and it ran choppy now it runs almost perfect hardly any choppiness. Other games have increased FPS as well. All in all very nice driver package.

Thanks for the comment. I hope this can be a replacement for my old 84.25 driver version. One problem with this driver is that the Digital Vibrance bar will reset to 0 after a restart. Can it be fixed? Or is it a driver problem? To the guest above me, there shouldn't be any problems downloading. Just click Driver, and the download should start. Now i am waiting for a driver which is optimized for Bioshock. Played it and got BSOD-ed because i used 84.25.

The digital vibrance bar resets for me as well so must be a driver issue but I dont use it so it doesnt bother me. It only effects the desktop anyways video/games are not affected. If you have a different card other than the go 7950 gtx you can install one of the latest drivers with the modded inf if not then your kinda stuck with the rest of us. However this driver does produce very decent play in BioShock on medium settings with no choppiness that I have seen so far.

I had the same problem with digital vibrance- to fix it just change your color settings, then "save as" in color profile. When you want to use the color changes launch in custom color settings.

These drivers work great in my dell xps 7800GTX Did not need the modded "inf" file for these to work!

Not sure if it is just my laptop, but these drivers have not cured the issues which I have been experiencing in trying to play Half Life 2. (As the game loads/starts to play, the screen goes black and the sound gets stuck in a loop)

How can I enable brightness control through the function buttons Fn+F8/F9 again? They stopped working after I installed this driver on my laptop Fujitsu-Siemens Pa1538. (With the original F-S supplied driver 86.17 they did work.)

Thanks!

I have just noticed that Toshiba has posted a driver update for the Satellite A100 :

156.16 for Vista.

the XP drivers are stuck at 84.68 ...

Haven't checked for other Satellite models.

cheers

What about SLi support? I really want to try this driver but I left my BIG NB at home :) . And my X700 doesn't like this kind of drivers :) . Are there other Sli user outside? Sometimes I guess not..... :P

I'm facing the same issue with a Sony VAIO FE11S on XP32, all the hot keys work except the brightness control. Any Ideas on how to re enable it?

Try adding "EnableBrightnessControl" 1 to the INF. Read Support Forum for more information (see sticky threads).

This version is working fine on my xp pro laptop. Is there also an x64 version available?

Thank You. These drivers install and run fine on my Cleo U (widowpc sting 517d) with the Go 7950GTX (single).

Bioshock support is not there yet, but getting closer with this driver (load times for levels take a lot less time). However the game remains unplayable as it still slows down to a crawl crashes after a short (but random) time.

Its absurd that a mobile card which was so recently an 'elite' model has such poor support for such a mainstream game. Why would nvidia divorce itself from its top-of-the line mobile products at the outset? Guess its ATI next time.
