just tested the driver with 3dmark06 and i scored 3479 on my m171o rig, with a 7900gs card. its not the highest result but one of the highest. now im gonna test if games like the witcher, team fortress 2 etc runs smooth.

Do these drivers come with the PowerMizer 7.0 options in the control panel? It sucks that Vista has to handle that and not us, boy did I love that feature in my good old xP. The problem is... i love vista's overall enchacements! lollll

I always got that dreaded nvlddmkm error with 101.43 by dell, 156.61 by dell, and the other 156.65-.66 drivers that natively supported my 8600M GT. But now with 156.69, it looks like it fixed it for me at least....for now

These drivers give a brighter output on my panel and external display via HDMI in Extended Desktop.

PQ improved significantly....... (Dell XPS-M1330)

STILL doesnt work with SLI. I cleaned out my previous install of these frivers after I learned you added more INF's, and did the whole drive cleaner pro thing. I then re-installed it with the new modded inf's, and enabled the SLI after installation completed. Computer restarted, got back to desktop, ran 3dmark06, still no sign of both GPU's (8700M GT's) working =(

Also this driver remembers Extended Desktop settings when unplugging monitor /reconnecting monitor via HDMI

previous driver kept restoring windows to extended desktop while display as single

previous driver did not restore extended desktop when LCD was reconnected via HDMI

Hi there,

These are from Dell, I can't find them on thier website though, so how did you get them? I guess I should use them unmodifed with my XPS1710 (with Go 7950GTX) is that right? Will let you know how I get on.

Cheers,

Paul

Yes these are from Dell, and we have ways of hounding out drivers, but these are available when you press update driver in the device properties.

Can anybody mod the Toshiba version of the inf (nvts.inf), or at least give me instructions on how to mod the inf's?

I have a Toshiba P105-S6217 with a Geforce Go 7300 running Vista Home Premium 32-bit.

The original Toshiba inf (nvts.inf) said my hardware wasn't compatible with the driver, even though it supposedly supports Geforce Go 7300's.

Then the modded Dell inf caused my laptop to not be able to startup, so I had to restore my computer.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Ok so I have been testing these drivers for a while already, and I have to say that they have fixed all my previous problems on my Sony VAIO FZ21S!

Flip3D used to be a little bit choppy (not much though) and now it works so smooth that it surprised me. I hadn't seen Flip3D work like that before! Oh, but alright, Flip3D isn't exactly what all of you may want to hear about these drivers, so let's go on:

So far these are the best drivers running Crysis for me. Not the 169.xx drivers, but these. I once mentioned in these forums that the water looked great, but had a broken reflect effect in which the reflection wouldn't match the object it was trying to reflect (causing some funny-looking views). Now, with this driver, it is finally fixed! And not to mention that Crysis is running much faster this time around. At 1024 x 768 I can run with most things on high-medium. And take into account that I NEVER overclock my graphics card.

Also these drivers can play HD content found on commercial Blu-Ray movies (I mentioned how the 169.xx drivers locked the playback of Blu-Ray movies in this thread: http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/index....ost&p=60957

I will post more as I keep testing.

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 with an 8600MGT chip running win vista basic and this driver is the best i've tried to date. Before when I'd play team fortress 2 it would run alright for about 30 minutes to and hour then either crash or give me huge visual fragments and i'd have to shut down the program anyway. But let me just say that I played Team Fortress 2 for 2 hours today without a crash or graphics error, and I was even able to get about 5 more frames in game with this driver.

I also played guild wars and stalker much smoother with this driver, 156.69 is a winner

Okay, so I have a Dell with a 8400GS...is there any advantage to still using the modded INF's instead of the WHQL one to get special tweaks or optimizations or something?

Oh, and which one are most people getting better experiences with?

156.73 or this (156.69)
