Guest Samukami Posted November 26, 2008 Report Share Posted November 26, 2008 Hello, When I bought my Samsung R70 laptop, it had windows vista pre-installed, and I can't quite remember if I had this same issue back then, but i'm somewhat sure I did. Anyway, a while I ago I chose to downgrade to XP again for performance reasons, as the game I play (Final Fantasy XI) sucked under the vista drivers (I didn't know about laptopvideo2go's custom forceware drivers back then) would have a horrible frame rate and lag like hell, but was nice and smooth under XP. Due to a reformat I had to perform on the XP side, I made the decision to go back to Vista, which I've decided, I don't want to go back to XP again, installing it and downgrading was too much bother to do again. And upon downloading new Forceware drivers from laptopvideo2go, my lag was gone so now I'm even more willing to stay with vista. So I'll get to the problem at hand... Basically a perk I got in XP was, when my game was maximized in a windowed mode, it would give a nice anti-alias style blur effect do it, almost removing any pixellation that might have been caused by the stretch. This was awesome. And on Vista, every time I do this, it goes pixellated, which looks so ugly and does not seem to have this effect that XP does. So I'm wanting to know, I've researched this problem pretty hard, and it seems pretty unresolved, and I'm not even sure it's down to the drivers themselves. But has anyone also had this problem (or fixed it)? I noticed in Vista it also pixelates when viewing and zooming in on a photo in the Vista Picture Viewer, which is odd, and quite hideous too....I'm willing to accept this might not be fixable...but if you know anything, please help. If anyone wants, i can show you can example of what happens. So, are there any drivers that resolve this issue, and what would be the best drivers with the best performance rating for the Samsung R70 with GeForce 8400M GS, on vista??? If you could help me out here, i'd be really grateful, Thank you for your time! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
