Fixes the annoying uneven framerate in COD4 and Counter-Strike according to the manual. Will test soon and... eventually update my benchmark charts.

I'm still missing the CP but this driver is really the fastest so far on 3DMark06 and Vantage, so let's continue to use it. Always can use nHancer to change settings...

These are the first drivers in a long time that haven't pushed 100C temps on my machine when gaming...

Performance seems good... haven't crashed yet but theres always still time for that ... X-/

This might sound Crazy... but after installing this new driver, after playing Crysis for about 30-40mins, the power adaptor would Shut Off........ The light on the adaptor would shut off and i would need to unplug it and wait a little while before plugging it back in again for the power to go back up again.

running stock no tweak, no OC, just with this driver on a fresh OS and the driver

Ever since I installed this driver I get this annoying error at startup that says: "RunDLL" and the error says: "Error Loading C:\Windows\system32\nvhotkey.dll The specified module could not be found." Anyone know why and/or how to fix this?

Other than that, great driver!

nvhotkey.dll must not have installed properly. Restart your computer, run driver sweeper, and reinstall the drivers.

Also I'm getting this annoying slow-down when scrolling, there is MEGA-DELAY sometimes it's responsive, sometimes it's not. Really annoying me.

177.79 does not come with this, 177.73 does.

you will need to uninstall driver completely then reinstall 177.79 to get rid ot that error.

Got the CP back by installing with 177.73 original INF - which supports my card - edited the version and date in the INF.

177.73 has this:

[nv.CoInstaller]

nvcod.dll,,,0x00004000

nvcod132.dll,nvcod.dll,,0x00004000

177.79 has this:

[nv.CoInstaller]

nvcod.dll,,,0x00004000

nvcod133.dll,nvcod.dll,,0x00004000

nvcodh.dll,nvcod.dll,,0x00004000

nvcodhins.dll,nvcod.dll,,0x00004000

Are you able to do me a big favour and mod the modded INF to make 177.79 look like this:

[nv.CoInstaller]

nvcod.dll,,,0x00004000

nvcod133.dll,nvcod.dll,,0x00004000

If you could reinstall with the above mod and see what happens.

Of course should it fix your problems not sure how I'm going to implement a fix :)

Just wondering if the other files are stopping your CP from working.

I installed this v177.79 driver onto my Windows Vista: Home Premium with Pieter's modded INF (the one included), it worked fine. I have the control panel, everything seems to work fine. :) The modded inf for this driver seems to work great. I'm actually using it in conjunction with WhiteTiger's modded INF (version/date has been changed), if that's safe.

You meant 132...

I reinstalled and well, it worked! Well, I'm having pretty many (= 4) restore points with different versions of 177.79 :)

I found that if you give the computer a good 5 minutes to load and stop loading from the hard drive scrolling works fine again :)

Not switching back because these are great in all my games, just waiting for some new drivers that will fix this!

I figured out why! these drivers are massively hampering things because they do some major powermizer crap when you get above a certain temperature.

follow this tutorial: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=261929

It fixed all my aero lag problems and games are more responsive.

I have a problem.

First, I seem to have a lot of drivers on my laptop for my GFX-card. More precisely 5. 4 of those is called the name of my card (NVIDIA GeForce 8600 M GT) followed by Version: 7.15.11.XXXX and then a date: [DD-MM-YYYY]

XXXX is different from driver to driver. These are the 4 different types: 5663, 5669, 7766 and 7779 (Apparently it is registered, but I don't think it is working at the moment, look at 2nd question).

After those 4 drivers, theres one called "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter".

My first question is: Is that normal?

Next question: I've tried applying this driver to all of the drivers listed above using this guide. But I get a message telling that Windows did find driver software for the device, but it wasn't installed because a file is missing.

I installed the 177.66 driver without problems some time ago.

Has anybody got an idea about this problem?
