Tr0x Posted October 27, 2007 Report Share Posted October 27, 2007 Okay, without completely losing it and going on a really long rant about how I just bought Bioshock today and it barely works and my graphics card should be a lot better than it is.....*gasps for breath* I'm just going to put down my problem on here and see if I could get ANY help. I'm using a 2 month old Dell Inspiron 1520 with Vistax32 Premium Home Edition. Like I said, I have the Geforce 8600M GT (apparently it's top of the line but im starting to doubt it...) but I'm stuck using the driver version 101.43 which is the most up to date one on the dell website. When I found out about there being more recent drivers (in fact MUCH more recent drivers) I just about lost it. I'm already upset with Dell with a few other issues but this just tops the list with them not having remotely up-to-date drivers avaliable to download for their customers. also, the fact that nvidia wont post the mobile drivers on their site which upsets me too. Anyway, I just need a really simple answer to this: What driver would be the best to download from this site for my situation? Before telling me this is a really stupid question and to go "look at the help forum for the 8xxxM cards" I'll tell you I've already done that. So far, I've tried the 158.45 AND the 163.44 drivers as recomended but both of them only make the bioshock screen move far to the left and then the game crashes and now Guildwars is completely screwy and I'll need to uninstal it. I've rolled back the drivers to the 101.43 but I just cant live with the shoddy performance of it anymore (battlefield 2142 is in a sad state and running with lower performance than my 4 year old computer). Just tell me what driver I need and if you would be so kind to tell me what I might be doing wrong I'd greatly appreciate it. I know this post was lengthy but I REALLY need help or I'm going to have to return bioshock which will make me sad :) Thanks (and yes I'm obviously a huge n00b to this site so be gentle) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
