jonKSA Posted July 18, 2011 Report Share Posted July 18, 2011 (edited) I've had this laptop since 06. Gateway nx860xl Core2Duo T7200 2.0 ghz 2GB DDR2 Win7 Ultimate 64x Geforce Go 7900gs Since running win7 I haven't had any use of the gfx card. It was running fine at first but windows update downloaded a microsoft driver for it automatically that caused my whole computer to lock up. After a system restore, reinstalling the drivers for the gpu, and more freeze ups I gave up and ran with onboard gfx for a while. I've got the itch to get this comp running as well as it can again but I can't find a single driver for win7. There's limited support on the nvidia site with a 179.xx driver but it causes windows to boot to a black screen. There is nothing on the gateway support site. I realize that there's probably no official support for win7 with this card, but there's no way I can revert back to vista since I'm overseas. Any and all help/suggestions would be very appreciated.
