v257.15 Windows 7/Vista 32bit | NVIDIA Desktop and Notebook OEM

Recommended Posts

Are you going to update the inf for th 64-bit driver like you did for the 32-bit one? Driver installation fails when installing the control panel under Windows 7 x86_64.

Working fine for me in x64 Win7

One kickass driver. Working very smoothly for me. I was on 197.15 and got 3562 3D marks. With this driver, I'm getting 4881 3D marks!!!!!!! woohooo!....... CP is working fine. My rig is a Dell XPS M1530, T7700 C2D 2.4 ghz, 2 GB ram, 256 mb 8600m GT gddr3, 160 gb hdd....

I did what one of the posters above mentioned, I used the 256.76 INF. No hiccups......

Is it possible to span to 3 monitors in 2d mode? I have 46" LCDs

I have installed the drivers successfully, but it does not give me the option to span in the SLI config. Does this only work for 3D enabled displays?

v257.15 beta for notebook is on nvidia's official download site on beta section. It is easier to install

bottom line, when my laptop is on the "Save power" mode it has more performance rather on the SLI mode!!!!!

when it is on one gpu it is on the 9400M G though when it is on the dual mode its on 9200M GS.

i've searched a lot, the solution though was either not found or very old. e.g. i tried to unlock the SLI section in the nv control pannel without success (i tried to mod my nvdj.inf using the modded nv_display.inf file to unleash every possible feature)

what can i do?

Laptop: Dell Studio XPS 1340

Graphic: 9500M (9400M G + 9200M GS)

Current Driver: 257.15 (modded version)

i really think that 186.91 from microsoft were the best for now they give 2888 on 3dmark6 with temp around 52-55 idle and on intensive games u t 77-79 c,but with 257.21 new ones i have now 2930 with 3dmark6 and temp same as 186.91 so i think these 257.21 are better than 18x.

i have nvidia 8400m gt.
