Disabling write combining on vista 64


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have a new laptop

System Manufacturer Gateway

System Model P-7805u

System Type x64-based PC

it has a nvidia geforce 9800m gts video card, and I am using nvidias' 179.48 drivers with it. I asked my tech support friend about this and he told me in xp there was a way to turn of something called write combining but the vista drivers I'm using don't allow for this. I'm just wondering about this because the programs I use that don't use directx run flawlessly, left 4 dead on high settings as well as zbrush which just last night I was modelling a 1 million poly mesh. is there a way for me to turn off write combining in vista to see if that will help? because after talking to my friend I have noticed the only applications that are effected are those using direct x,, which I have updated to the lasted version from the microsoft website. thanks for any help you might offer for this.
