1.- Read the FAQ :)

-Or-

2.- Try DoX 185.85

3.- Download the "driver" and the "modded inf", put the "modded inf" in the same folder as the "driver" (extracted of course), replace when prompt

4.- Uninstall your current drivers, install the drivers you downloaded

5.- It will ask you to reboot... ofc do it

Thats it... I hope it works but remember that the GeForce 8400/8600 from Nvidia wont last long... so dont even think of overclocking

because my notebook lasted less than 2 years and now I'll have to replace it. :)

I have 8400m gt

and overclocking for one years now.

Actually overclocking to the maximum!!I mean with rivatuner I pull up everything to the max.

Never caused problem....

And see that:

I am not the only one who does it.

As I seen yours is a FZ which has major problem with the nvidia chipset

Hi,

I have WIN 7 Ultimate (32bit),

Acer 5720z (notebook)

I don`t have the stereoscopic tab in nVidia panel.

Please help.

Thank you,
