nVidia GeForce 8700M GT Driver


Recommended Posts

I received my Alienware Area-51 m15x. I've spent about 5 hours straight trying to find an acceptable driver for my video card Graphics card is nVidia GeForce 8700M GT.

I've currently got 169.28 installed. This is about the 6th one I've tried, and each and every driver I've installed has the exact same problem... they can't display white! White is displayed as gray and red stripes, and it's EVERYWHERE. If you don't think the problem is the driver for the gfx card, please tell me.

You'd think on a brand new laptop they'd at least have support for crap like this.

I'm lucky enough that my laptop doesn't have those display problems, but am in the same boat trying to find a driver. Shame on nVidia for not supporting the chipsets they make and shame on the laptop makers for not periodically updating video drivers!
