8800m DX10 big problem

Hi guys!

Ok hopefully someone has run into this before and has a simple solution.

i have a gatewayFX with an 8800gts in it.

When I use a desktop modded inf driver, the 180's for instance, I gain the Physx support and some performance enhancements on my card. Problem is that any DX10 application either renders all screwy or doesnt even render at all. The nvidia tech demos from the SDK (like the smoke or cloth one) just show a black screen and when in DX 10 games, some things dont render correctly. The DX10 nvidia demos, like medusa, dont render half the screen.

Now when using official laptop drivers (non inf modded ones) everything works great. 176.92 is the latest official laptop drivers I can find and they work great. All DX10 things run perfectly fine.

Is there anyway to get the new 180's to run properly so I can gain the physx support and still have DX10 render correctly? I have also tried those custom laptop drivers from the main news page with the switching powermizer and allthough they install, still no dice on DX10 stuff.

Thanks for the replys and hopefully there is a setting or something im missing.

the new one out 180.84 is just out now. try that one as GTA4 has a lot of missing GF details also (DX10) this may be the issue.

Alright just tried and it no dice. i get Physx support but no DX10 demos.

If anyone has an 8m series or higher and running any 180 series driver and can run some tests that would be great.

Download the nvidia DX10 sdk. It has a bunch of cool 3d demos like cloth and smoke. Run some like the smoke one and see if you get a black screen. Another good test is with the medusa demo. The demo will run, but if you go into the warrior idle and enable stone clicking and you click him the DX10 geometry shader will not render.

Let me know. Its seems as though nvidia has disabled some features in the 180's if you running a notebook GFX card.

Any help would be awesome!! THANKS!
