Video driver for 8400M GS


Recommended Posts


I've been having some audio and video issues with my Dell Inspiron 1720 (what do you expect?) and was told to download a video driver for the Geforce 8400M GS. I have been searching the forums for a while to see which is best but I can't seem to find one. Would you be able to suggest a driver for my video card on a 1720 with Vista Home Premium 32bit?

I'd appreciate any help... big time.

maybe try 174.31 or 174.74

they seem good for vista and 8000 series GFX cards

I tried drivers from the 174 series, also the latest from dell.

My experience is that they are not stable.

After some time I see artifacting (not OC'ing) - on desktop (not in game)

In Sims I experienced flicker and artifacting as well.

The most stable driver so far for me, seems to be the 169.09
