HP Pavilion DV9000 w/ 7150 GO too slow?

Recommended Posts

Well Back in feb I got this wonderful laptop for my birthday, at the time I had a gaming desktop. Recently I purchased a 8800 GTX OC and I installed it, but I neglected to upgrade my PSU and it trashed my mobo. So currently I'm TRYING to get my gaming fix but it runs some games moderatly like CS:Source, HL2, but runs other games poorly like DiabloII, portal, TF2, iRO, Atlantica Online CB. And it's getting dull and annoying that most games can't even get ~20FPS. The DV9xxx lappies at the very least had an option for a 7600 Go, Would it be possible to swap out my 7150 card? Are there any other options available? The card actually uses a PCI-E format, would it be possible to get a PCI-E 'L' Adapter and use my 8800GTX card with some sort of modified psu for it? :) I know I'm dreaming

I hate to break it to u, but go7150 is a IGP. Checked it out right here.

Now the laptop might have a pci-e port, but I don't know, I don't own one. U might wanna try updating your forceware if your still using the hp oem one.

Do u know what version of forceware u have? It can be found in gpuz or in device manager under display adapters properties/driver tab.

Why don't u try 175.95 or 177.79. Since thats a pretty outdated driver that might help u a little bit. Vista with a go7150 is notorious for bad performance for

some reason.

Here's 177.79

Here's 175.95

I just updated to 177.79 and it makes a HUGE difference.. i went from 7fps in diablo2 to 35fps!

wow the OEM drivers were really holding me back!
