Another installment of streamlined, fat free optimised drivers!

This will be my last driver until after the start of summer, I've got too much work going on to keep modding drivers now I'm afraid.

Drivers are newer than 185.20 by build date :)

So enjoy this release, check out the release notes below.

Internal changes over 181.22

-Fixed install issue for 9400M cards in XP

-Improved quadro driver settings compared to my previous releases (G9x cores only)

-Left nvidia stereovision server into drivers (vista only)

Release Highlights

-Supports all mobile cards from 6-GT100 series and quadro equivalent

-Added numerous OpenGL and DirectX performance and Image quality tweaks

-Options to install for Quality/Balance/Performance driver settings

-Added extra resolutions not found in original set

-Optimised drivers

-Integrated driver settings from 179.48 to help with "normal" functions of your lapotp like sleep, powermanagement, tv out etc (cannot guarantee it will work for all people)

Previously, with all the dox drivers, my memory clock wouldn't go into performance mode, with this one, it actually does! Great driver btw, far more optimised than the original one. BTW, for any of you experiencing the same problem with your memory clock, just disable power mizer and make it so that it runs on performance mode all the time, it'll solve the problem.

great driver. problem with sleeping mode fixed for me.

but one small problem is still alive for my fx 570m under windows vista 64bit sp1. i'm not able to activate scaling, while me external monitor is active. already tried the enoverscanfix from nvidia with no luck. used original graphic card drivers from fujitsu siemens for my h250 - no luck. tried differnt drivers from this page - no luck. now i'll stay at the dox driver because of the great preformance.

image of the problem i mean: http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/2163/scalingmu3.jpg

it would be great if anyone could help me with the scaling problem.

The driver works fine until now.

In GTA4 I get very wiered water reflections, more precise it acts as if it is a huge mirror bouncing around on the entire water surface. It wasn't there with the 181.22 drivers.

I am have an 9800M GTX and using balance settings.

I just passed by just to say thanks. This is the best driver you released so far Dox. For sure.

Sleep issue has been fixed, performance has improved... A nice way to say "goodbye". :)

Nice driver, my sleep function works now without having to disable PowerMizer (8600M GT).

Also went from 4500 to 4600 3dmarks :)

Hi Dox,

I Have tried several of your drivers, and I have a resolution problem with all (included this one), except the 185.20 one.

I can't go higher than a 1024x720 res, whereas it is suppose to be 1200x800...

problem with drivers: 181.22, 181.22.1, 181.20

works fine with: 185.20

I'm running on XP SP3, my laptop is an acer 5930g with a 9600M GT.

Do you have any ideas?!!

Thanks a lot for your work, it's just awesome what you do. I am really grateful for it.

Same laptop, same OS, same problem. I can add 1280x800 as a custom resolution in the nvidia CP, but I can't actually run games with that resolution (namely left4dead, haven't tried anything else).
