CyBorGManiac Posted June 1, 2006 Report Share Posted June 1, 2006 Hey guys, I have an Inspiron 9300 1.6Ghz Centrino 1gb 533mhz 6800go. Here is my scenerio and my quick question: Is there a way to make nvidia released drivers tone down speed during windows? I know they run full power over OEM drivers that slow down when you aren't playing a game. The reason being is: -Dell OEM 78.51 are the drivers that were stable, played counterstrike well, but not oblivion -Nvidia 84.25 were AWESOME but made my laptop hot, but with the fan on 24/7, its fine. oblivion is awesome as well -Dell OEM 84.30 work great, just that there are bugs, like when I close my lid, it resorts all my icons into a 640x480 screen, REALLY inconvenient and no one knows the answer to this. I am thinking about going back to 84.25 (or whatever is newer from Nvidia). Screen also flickers sometimes, I'm gonna change to something else soon. so you see, im gearing towards some nvidia drivers that dont blow my comp away while im not using it, but i need the extra kick while im gaming. I appreciate any answers, thanks guys. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
