best driver for 8400m gs on windows vista

Recommended Posts

i have a pavilion dv9646em with a 8400m gs running on windows vista ultimate 32bit, i am currently using the latest driver from the hp website, the driver is a massive 130mb compared to the 30mb driver from laptop video2go, im wondering if there are any better drivers out there that could make performance in games such as crysis and counter strike source faster

If I were you, I would try out a 175.xx or 177.xx driver. These improve my performance somewhat.

ha! another halo 1 player ;D

halo struggled on mobility radeon x1700. so im not surprise it lags on your card.

its horribly unoptimized and therefore requires a powerful card to get good framerates.

i good driver for it is 175.16. BUT halo will still run laggy.

you could use the -use11 commandline to dumb down the graphics a bit for better FPS.

Out of all drivers for the 8400m gs, I will have to go with the 169.04 as well.

Halo for PC probably was not optimized because they wanted everybody to buy it for the crappy Xbox thing.

Hp drivers are more 'specialised' for you and therefore in some events results in best performance. However, drivers on this site still beat the acer released drivers
