I hope there is a release soon on MS update of one of the 25x drivers with a nv_whql.inf soon, because I have tried these drivers (with modded inf on this site) and they are the best for my notebook...no flickering like with the 198.05

Dont wait for MS update, Nvidia has released the 257.21 WHQL already for notebooks and desktops. Other than that WHQL really doesnt mean much if the drivers work for you.

The modified inf and the drivers are out now - but the original inf or zipped additional OEM infs do support a long list of different laptops; my Asus at least is there.

I didn't need the modded inf with the notebook version using a dell m1730. These 258.69 are working great so far no problems at all. They overclock good too.

A new fantastic bug developed - no output via VGA into external monitor, either using original or modified inf. So pretty short test...

I had problems with all 25X drivers in CODMW (COD4), the smoke is strange and it is slower for me. I have a compal ifl90 with a 8600mgt 512 ddr2 win7 x64. Could anyone help me to solve this, cause I think it is not normal. I am now using 197.15 and works well. What driver should you recommend me?

I'm connected to an external monitor via VGA (yuck! HDMI at home... VGA at work) right now and it works. At least it works on my setup. Anyone else having the same issue as zipper? Seems like something that would be tested before releasing.
