Thanks to JRd1st / MVKtech.net for informing us about this release.

OPINION *by LSudlow

This release is notable largely because it's the latest (as of its release) WHQL mobile driver from Dell. It's a couple of weeks older than 67.02 and doesn't include the new LOD Clamp setting that's been solving so many problems. If you're looking for a "real" mobile driver, give this a try. But if you're happy with either the latest nVidia WHQL driver or the superb 67.02, there's no reason to switch.

Original INF only supports:

Just to clarify, the original/unmodified Dell 67.42 installs & runs fine on my M60/QFXG1000 with no issues. It is WHQL Certified, and is almost as fast as Dell 53.82.

It was intended to be used with the Dell/FXGo5200 to correct various flat panel issues.

I've installed this driver with the original nvdm.inf to see if it solves the various probs I had with the modified 66.81 and 66.93 (hibernation fails, bsod).

This one is very stable, very fast and quite cool also. Now I can run for 30 minutes on battery power instead of 5 minutes! :)

Highly recommended for the "4200go (Dell Mobile)" on Latitude D800 & sibling Inspiron 8x00 series.

Anyone else tried this with either the modified INF or the original NVDM inf?

I uninstalled Dell mobile NVDM 56.72 as it kept resizing my taskbar.

Now, my Start Menu sometimes goes black with NVDM 67.42, wondering if it's just coincidental or whether there's a reason Dell Precision Tech Support still suggests the 53.82 for the Quadro FXGo1000 :)

I've tried it both ways (and also with my own inf) and it works fine. It's a good driver, but it lacks the latest features that are in 67.02.

For some reason, the NV36 App_Perf seems to be missing in the NVDM.inf, or maybe I'm just tired...LSudlow, see my edited/added to post above...

Out of curiosity, how many of these latest features will i be able to utilize with my QFXGo1000 + 67.42 that I don't have with the 53.82? Thx.

How do I upload a "crunched" driver? I'll do that for both versions of these 67.42 drivers if you tell me how...

I think he means upload it in the special z-zip format or whatever.....

Edit: How you would upload the whole driver I do not know, as its definely bigger than the 100 KB size limit...

FYI, I saw this the other day.

This is exactly the same version as the other 67.42 released earlier.

Only difference is version.txt.

I noticed that all the three NVDM.inf files are of different sizes....

You could use WinDiff to determine the differences between these textfiles (or the whole folder).

If somebody can make sure, that really only the INFs are different, i would just link the to the INFs you attached, ofelas.

*DVD playback fails on Solidworks app profile.
When reading and without having a look at the driver, i would also think that the nvdcc.app config file must be different (the file where all the Quadro profiles are stored). Is that true?

I'm not sure...however, I found this out -

When I used the 67.42 meant for FXGo5200, I had very slow response times when watching a DVD on an external monitor (dual display).

When I used 67.42 released for the QFXGo1000, performance is back to normal.

Hanen't tried the 67.42 released for QFXGo700 yet...

The QuadroFXGo700 and FXGo5200 INF are the same.

QuadroFXGo1000 and FX Go5200 are different.

But the strange thing is that the difference are added settings only for the Go5200 and Quadro Go700, not the QuadroFxGo1000 :)

I give up...Dell just released their "latest" driver version AO5 Dec 02, 2004, but the NVDM.inf is dated Jul 12, 2004, and it's a 61.76 driver for the QFXGo700 & QFXGo1000.

This driver is NOT WHQL, so I can't install/test it.

Download here -

Fixes/enhancements -

Updated Maya Certified Driver

NVDM is attached

Any meaningful differences that one can see? tweaks for stability/performance?

Would this be SP2 & DX 9.0c compatible? Stick to NVDM_67.42 or switch to NVDM_61.76?

I can't wait until I don't have to use Dell's WHQL drivers...

Ofelas, no, there are no tweaks of any kind in that Dell inf. It's all standard stuff. Sorry!

Thanks for the reply..I can't use the Dell 61.76 anyway, as work INSISTS I use WHQL drivers....and the Dell 61.76 is not WHQL.

So they can sew nvidia if anything goes wrong? :)

Btw using any of the modified INF will "destroy WHQL status" as it's obviously not certified by Microsoft (and of course nvidia).
