Hi,

what about the modded inf, anything planned?

This is a laptop driver so I thought the random downclocking problem may be fixed in this one. I tried nearly every tweak or driver, but the best solution for me is the 174.31 DELL driver, where everything is fine but performance could be better.

I have a DELL XPS M1530 with 8600 GT DDR3

and cheers for the good work

This exact driver should be on the dell website. The 175.97 is available for download for my M1330 and it came out the 1st of July. It supports the 8400M and 8600M GPUs :)

Yeah, Dell released the 175.97 for Inspiron 1420, Inspiron 1520, Inspiron 1720 and XPS M1330. It looks like Dell's driver corrects the TDR (Time detection and recovery) errors seen in laptops with Geforce cards 8400M and 8600M running in Vista 32-bit. I hope something will come up for all the others (like me) who don't have Dell (kudos to Dell) :) .

I have ACER 5920g, and I am getting these kind of errors quite often, even though I tried numerous different procedures to correct them (with no luck obviously).

Try my modded inf with the dell drivers. I've just installed the dell ones perfectly. They seem good so far with no downclocking yet, so maybe, just maybe they are keeps. Just paste it into the folder that dell creates on your harddrive and rename it to "nv_disp".

Same here, worst driver ever tested. Performance was ok, but after less than 5 minutes in Age of Conan it clocked down.

Switched back to DELL 174.31. Best driver without downclocking for me so far.

I've installed this drivers on my XPS 1330 (GeForce 8400 GS).

GPU, Shaders and Memory clocks are downclocked even in 3D games (WoW unplayable) :

GPU 169MHz instead of 400.

Shaders 337MHz instead 800.

Memory 100MHz instead of 600.

I went back to old version.

:P

OF COURSE!!! :)

Your battery decrease because your sistem need more energy to stay at full performance. This is the reason why your sistem downclock in DC (Direct Current) (Battery mode). :P

Just plug your AC power adapter cord. lol lol lol :) lol lol lol

hehe i know that and it still downclocks when im not playing games but my battery time is 50 % from before.

whit older drivers i get same performance in games and no downclocking but much better batterylife

but too bad 174.74 craches sometimes it recovers but its irritating when you game you need to restart

There's a version of this driver on ASUS site, in the section of ASUS M50CV laptop (9300M GS).

I installed this driver in my ASUS M50Sv (9500M GS), and it overheats, my laptop cooler NEVER runs to fast as with this driver.

PowerMizer maybe fine, I think, later I'll test it, and the battery life too.

EDIT: PowerMizer is OK, but in High Performance the battery runs about in 40 min, playing (Counter Strike: Source), my old driver runs about 70 min... :)

Need to test with Crysis...

These drivers are the best for my laptop (Asus G1S with Geforce 8700M GT) for the moment. No downgrade and I have 5320 in 3Dmark with us.

I'm french sorry if my english is bad, but I guess it's comprehensible.

That's the same driver for Laptop model M50Vm (9600M GS), and works good in model M50Sv (9500M GS)

I'm installing Crysis now, finished now!

Lets play...

I recommend to use only Dell drivers for Dell PCs because another driver can create conflicts with other hardware like Wi-Fi (happen to mi)

Conflicts with Wi-Fi

175,97 --3719 --No --Don´t Work --No

With Driver 175,97

Because de PowerMizer DownClock after a while of gaming and don´t recovery optimal GPU Core and Memory Clock, (Can recover closing all Users sessions and sign in again with any user) I had to disable PowerMizer with regedit value PerfLevelScr 3333 to 3322.

Shut down and turn it on the PC..

After ~8 Hours of Call Of Duty 4 --1280X800--All Yes--AA 4x (with 175,31 i had to set AA--None)

So far don´t suffers any crash

you can install 175.97 without using the mod inf for your M1530.

just use the original Dell inf and you will get WHQL.

i already using this driver for 2 weeks and i think 175.97 is the best driver for my 8600M GT GDDR3 :)

Dell first released this driver for Vostro 1510, then for Inspiron series and M1330.

but i dont know why Dell dont update this latest driver at M1530 support page :)

The performance drop after like 30min after gaming (PES 2008)

Not that stable even from Dell

Pretty good here, all working, including desktop schemes, personal defs...

And it's WHQL

I don´t want to say this, but i had to go back with 174,31.. :P

179,57 is more stable with games, but for some strange reason some times drop the GPU clock and mem clock to the half (GPU 229 of 475 and Mem clock 200 of 400) and don´t go back to full performance itself (you have to restart)... :)

It occurs with powermizer on (3333) or with powermizer off (3322) (PerfLevelScr 3333 or 3322 in the regedit). I already try in the two options, the same happend drop the GPU clock down randomly without any signal, just you note this when the FPS are to low.. :)

I suspect the reason this driver, and probably any new laptop driver released for the G8x series laptop chips from NVIDIA, sometimes downclock and use more battery power is that they are designed to decrease the likelihood of chip failure. See below:

http://mobile.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/08/01/0142219

The idea is to keep the temperature from going up and down too much so it runs lower clocks and uses the fan more. It also appears that new laptop bios are being released in conjunction with these drivers so as to minimize the problem. Personally I hope mine cooks so I can upgrade to the 8800m (which by the way is based on the G92 chip).
