v185.20 Windows Vista 32bit | NVIDIA

Recommended Posts

ETA

works great, SLI on the laptop, 9800 GT, even Physx can be enabled.

And most importantly the clock speed is throttled back to 200Mhz when no 3D used.

Previously all Physx/SLI drivers stayed at 500Mhz, so this one is definatly great if you are an occasional gamer.

Why do I have to translate this with Google? ("These drivers are totally sucks. I got a lot less FPS")

Just write in English pls.

Running an 8600GS here, put my laptop to sleep and had issues with it starting up again. But saying that, I've had issues with the standard drivers before so nothing new for me there; probably to do with something else as well.

Got 2570 in 3D Mark 06 - and had a few freezing issues with ProStreet (for about 5 to 10 secs at a time), didn't have that before. But this seemed to have stopped when I ran the game for the second time.

This is my first driver update from here, or ever, for that matter. I only got this laptop a few months ago - so it's still relatively new. I've had no problems, but it's not even been half a day since I updated the driver so it may be too early to tell. But I'd encourage you to go for it, depends what you want/need it for.

Does your friend have the same model laptop as you? Otherwise you should be fine, just follow the instructions carefully...

if this is your first update and u r inexperienced with computers u should install the latest official nvidia mobile drivers 179.28, they are pretty fast and stable.

the 179.28 can also be found on this site (or of course at nvidia.com).

alternatively i would recommend the Dox optimized 180.84.1

Uhmm... I guess the other drivers put your card too much to the max.

It's better to have less FPS, and be able to keep playing for more then 5 minutes.

from which planet do you come from ???

Já se tady sna?im psát anglicky, a jediný kdo mi odpoví je zrovna Čech :) Ale jinak s tebou plně souhlasím...

Well, when I first installed it on my xps 1530 (8600m gt) this driver really worked fine concerning performance and temps. Then funny Glitsches occured (I think black and white pixels are glitsches?)eventhough the temps were OK, my system nearly crashed and NOW, after i > completely < uninstalled this driver, rebooted and installed the normal dell-driver the powermizer still doesn't work anymore. oO

The "powermizer switch" programs says "powermizer settings not found".

What can I do? oO I dont want my laptop to run on full 3d-perfomance while writing emails xD

THX for your help =)

Yeah but as far as I know the full performance isn't utililised when you're writing emails (or doing any light work like that).

Don't hold me to that, though...
