There is alot of interest in this driver so here is it from me. I still recommend my 181.22.1 or 180.84.1 since these were leaked and may not be as stable.

So don't blame me if you have strange problems :) . I tried to improve this where I can so checkout the release notes:

Don't know what to say but WHAT THE HELL!!! I couldn't make the sleep work with the fix, but guess what it works without it. Of course, it works if I disable the service. Also works if next - I just disabled the service, replaced the nvvsvc.exe and .dll in c:\windows\system32 with the original 185.20, started the service again, and the sleep works. Did a restart of lap just to make sure, and the sleep again works. Different story with the last driver. Every other driver killed the sleep, but suddenly this one doesn't. And, yeah again have 2 nvvsvc.exe running in task manager... Weird dude. But thats the default I think.

I think Dox that you should put 2 versions, one without the fix, and this one, and let people test which one does have the sleeping problem.

**Last update from me for sleep issue.

The sleep with the original nvsvc service accually doesn't work, it works if lap is sleeping not longer than 5 minutes!!!!

Also it works if the service is just disabled.

My latest trick -> I've noticed that services depencie is nvlddmkm. So I figured that I should try to replace also that with nvlddmkm.sys from 179.28, as well as the nvvsvc.exe and nvsvc.dll, and test it. It's the kernel mode driver. And the sleep Works!! But, as I'm not that experienced, I can't tell wheter this is a good or a bad trick. -> DON'T DO THIS, BAD TRICK!!!

Thats it for me, I'm out of the tricks for sleeping issue.

Dox, you are such a pimp.

The 185.20 for many of us allowed us to overclock our HP 8400's, but I had other problems with the driver - PowerMizer, hooking up to TV through HDMI didn't fill the whole screen.

But, sure enough, your release of the 185.20 fixed all that. By far, your best release.

Good looks man, I do really appreciate the time you to take to do your thing. Thanks bro.

Installed this driver on performance mode. I knew when DOX touched this driver it will be awesome. I'm playing Assassins creed on full note dx10 2xaa 1280x800 resolution stock clock 8600m gt gddr3 256 mb and it was completely playable 75c max temp.

Powermizer is working, although on my system the only thing is waking up from sleep is not happening i need to hard boot my laptop. This and the 181.22.1 of dox drivers only gives me an issue regarding waking up from sleep, the rest of all dox drivers are working all fine...

Any solution DOX? Looking forward for it!!!

By the way thanks dox, this driver gives me a solid performance no need for my GPU to be overclock while gaming...

Hi, I want to test this driver on desktop system. How about releasing desktop driver?

I installed your last desktop support driver v180.20, it was terrific.

thanks

I am unable to overclock my 8600M GS with these drivers, I could with the original 185.20 drivers (non optimized). This is in both windows XP and windows 7. Has anyone else had any luck getting these drivers to overclock?

Ill have to go back to the originals unless a way to overclock using these drivers comes up.

What is my problem? Why 90% of the times I can't download anything from this website?

"Error: The request for '/error/leech' was not found on this server." Everytime.

Yeah, I'm having the sleep problem, as well. Other than that, everything is perfect.

Hey Dox, I wanna keep using this driver, can you tell me what I need to change to put the sleep settings back to normal for those who never had the problem to begin with?

It could be that you're using some sort of download acceleration somewhere. It returns the 'leech' error for me, so I can only ever download without using any kind of acceleration software like Download Accelerator Plus or Flashget or even Firefox's DownThemAll extension.

Not sure, Try to download with the download accelerators etc, also if some one hotlinks to these from a different site you will get that error.

Its a tough call I had to make, try and fix it for all others knowing that doing so may break it for all others.

What do you do? Next time I'll keep things as they were and sleep will work for some and not others, back to where we started from....

Any reason for me to go to these from DOX 181.22?

If you are happy with my 181.22 no need to go to these :)

I only made these since I know some people prefer this driver since it has a higher version number :)

I still belive my 181.22 is a better driver (not because I modded them better).

But I think geforce 7 users had crashes due to 181.22 (not my problem) so I'm hoping they dont with this.
