I hope this one works with StarCraft 2, the previous drivers 196 and 197 would make the game crash at loading.

Edit: YES, they do fix the StarCraft 2 issues.

The FPS are stuck @ 10fps constant in every game...anyone know how to fix this ?

This driver is recommended for the StarCraft II beta.

It supports GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 100, 200, and 300-series desktop GPUs and ION desktop GPUs.

This release adds compatibility fixes for the StarCraft II beta and for some DirectX 8 applications but is otherwise identical to version 197.13

Right from the Nvidia site

Does anybody know if this fixes the no-PhysX problem that was occurring on the last few drivers?

Have a try; for me it works, I installed the latest 9.10.0222 and no problems here.

This driver comes with a newer Physix driver v09.10.0129.

StarCraft II isn't working for me with these. It just sits there with the title popup.. I cleaned the old driver just to make sure it wasn't old files, but that didn't fix it for me.

Edit: Even after cleaning these off in safe mode and installing drivers that had worked on this machine with StarCraft II, it still won't get past the title popup.. :)

Edit Again: Uninstalling StarCraft II and re-installing it fixed my problem. It is working with these drivers for me now.

Waking up from sleep/hibernation work with these? Most desktop drivers I've tried don't seem to work well with notebook functions such as lid closing. I usually wait for the mobile driver, but it's been so long since one was released!

Hahaha, alright so check this out:

If I mod the driver myself by manually adding my video card into the inf, it installs just fine but GPU-Z reports that I am missing OpenCL support.

If I use the laptopvideo2go modded inf, OpenCL is reported as working fine but now Direct Compute is said to be unsupported.

I guess more work is needed on the inf.

I have a GTX 280M in a Clevo M570TU.

Which "Section00#" are you using when you edit the INF on your own?

PhysX continues to not work on my 8600M GT with this driver or with any of the last 5 PhysX releases from several months ago... Is anyone even pretending to figure out what is wrong with this stuff

I am using the same settings that are used for the GTS 250 as it has the same core as the GTX 280M.

That is really weird as the modded INF should enable both.

The settings are the same in the modded INF as the original.

Does OpenCL disable direct compute ?

I doubt that because with previous drivers 195.81 I had them all active.

BSOD vlddmkm.sys error after clean install of W7 64bit , had to reinstall windows after multiple driver installs of BSOD and then nvidia driver not installing because no longer detecting GPU , windows using standard VGA driver. not happy :) searching google shows these are common fault.

if you have problems re-installing your drivers make sure you remove the .inf files from C:\Windows\inf as that can lead to issues install newer or older drivers. They are usually listed as OEM(number).inf

also remove the driver folder(s) from C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository they should be under nv_XX leave the nv_lh folder becauses a default driver that came with windows.

make sure you check the contents of the inf files & the driver folders before deleting though, just to be sure your deleting the right stuff.
