Ok, like near every other drivers, these here are also not installable on an Acer Aspire 7530G Laptop (Geforce 9100M G & 9600M) under Vista x64. Probably this is related to the hybrid-power feature.

Principal error reason: The Geforce 9100G chip was never installed. I tried it on every possible way, no chance. It terminated every time with an error like. "The selected drivers doesn't support Windows Vista".

After an half day of testing I will try now nvidia's beta laptop drivers, however, I read somewhere that these one also don't' work on Aspire 7530G. That's all really frustrating.

The absolutely only drivers which where (more or less) installable was v180.70. But if I remember me correctly, it was only possible before the chipset driver installation. I noticed several issues like stability errors, big power consumption, every time empty akku, no wake up from stand by, etc.

I will post this info also on other threads in this forum.

Hi Dox,

Been sometime since i've been here... And never knew there was some special drivers made by you :)

So now i'm really curious if they are good... But before trying... Just some quick questions if you dint mind :)

I'm on a laptop with a Geforce Go 7400 (128mb) with a 1.86Ghz dual core...

Currently i'm using the 174.93 drivers from here...

I read your sticky and everything :P

So my questions.

1. Since i'm using one of the older Graphic Cards, would i still benefit from fps boosts etc?

2. Any other positive benefits i get when changing from 174.93 to Dox 181.22?

3. Photoshop CS4 runs really smooth on my comp... Except when i'm moving layers around... Could your drivers maybe help? (Nvm i you dont know)

Thx for answering in advantage :unsure:

I wanted to thank Dox once again for a set of great tweaked drivers- call of duty plays slightly smoother & a little faster on my dell m1730 w/twin 8700GT

Was using dox's 180.43 before. Sorry, have not done real time testing just ran COD for 30 min's.

3. try this and see :w00t:

Cheers from down under mate, quite a few probs i rekon with this thats not in 181.20.

- 1200x800 not supported (ie anything with 15.4"(some) or 14.1/13.3) like xps1330) cannot run on native =(. Works with normal desktop thou.

- Rivatuner gets glitchy with setting when overclocks. (Will not drop to lowpower/2d when its hot)

Thanks for the drivers mate, thou'll be rolling back to 181.20

Hi! :P

Great work with the drivers!!! :)

But it gives me a BSOD on startup... :unsure:

STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000000,0x00000007,0x00000000,0xF74958E6)

Do you know how to fix this? :w00t:

Here's some info of my system...

Windows XP 32bits SP3
Toshiba Qosmio F20E (Subvendor 1179)
nVidia Geforce Go 6600 (NV43M)
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0148&SUBSYS_00021179&REV_A2
Bios v5.43.02.49.DC
Memory ranges: CF000000-CFFFFFFF , B0000000-BFFFFFFF , CE000000-CEFFFFFF , 000A0000-000BFFFF
IRQ: 16

Does this give you any hints on how to solve the problem? :unsure:

If you need any more technical details, just let me know! :)

compare real FPS in real games with those two drivers.

You cant "play" 3d mark 06 so whats the point?

I dont enjoy sitting looking a preety rendering for 8 mins to get a number out.

Benchmarks my 181.22 with 185.20 in real games then get back to me :)

Sorry I wont be modding 185.20, unless I have free time.

I have the GTA IV and do not experience gains like you do on that driver.

Don't think when someone says "jump" I say "how high?!!" :)

I dunno, I do have an optimised 185.20 when it was first released all those weeks ago, I havent taken it further though, who knows.

Maybe if I'm feeling generous it'll come out.

Tried this at last as benchmarker - top results except 3DMarkVantage. Other tests showed steady speedup of 1% which is remarkable at this pretty ripe state of these drivers.

I have a Macbook Late 2008, with a 9400M. I'm on Boot Camp 2.1 with XP SP3, and Team Fortress 2 crashed now and then, randomly, so Installed these drivers. No errors on startup, 1280x800 is fine, but when I move a window in Windows I see the redraw very slowly. I'm gonna try 181.20 now. Any suggestions?

And then the usual disappointment: no HDMI output on HP, doesn't even recognize my HDTV. Well, that's too familiar with most drivers.

Hi again Dox,

So i decided to give your drivers a go :)

But i have a little problem... I looked at the thread with the original 181.22 XP 32bit version...

And the Orginial INF doesnt show my Nvidia Geforce Go 7400 on the list...

So does that mean i cant run your drivers with my current card?

My fault :)

Sorry...

Currently formatting my laptop...

And going to give this a shoot after it's done :)

If i would choose performance... Would it only affect gaming? Since i dont really want it to affect video playback or Vista Aero for example :P
