Spires Posted June 20, 2009 Report Share Posted June 20, 2009 Hey Hey! Hello everyone, I swore I would never get another SLI/crossfire based laptop after the Sager 5950's total lack of support for SLI drivers(which btw is still stuck at 86.40 original drivers)... However Asus came out with the W90 and whoa what a beast for a lowly 2199$! Rips through every single game I throw at it and it overclocks like a champ! I love to overclock, it is an obsession for me and this laptop kicks it! I clocked and X9000 to 3.9ghz and scored 17.2k in 3dmark 06! Amazing hardware... Anyways, seems ATI is doing the same damn thing Nvidia and Sager/Clevo had done initially.. So far if you mod or force a desktop driver to fit on the cards, they work and work well but never in crossfire (Doh!).. Over at Noteboookreview, a fellow found out that if he flashed the second card to a master card's bios, he could get Catalyst 9.4 to work, but the one fellow on the forums who modded an .inf for us has yet to be heard from again. All our efforts have been fruitless for cats 9.6. I flashed my cards back to their original bios', and tried everything to force the drivers.. Even tried forcing Win7 mobility beta drivers but I cant seem to get them to even load up.. Perhaps one of you guru's here can do the job for us eh? I mean we are all amatures and you guys are the pros heheh... :) Here is a link to the Cat 9.6 Win7 mobility drivers.. http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/wind...ob_win7-64.aspx Here is a link to the current drivers that are quite old.. ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/nb/Drivers/VGA/ATI (the M98 ones at the top of the list) Thanks for any help dudes!
