I have a M1530 with 8600M GT running Windows 7 64x. The computer is raised +1cm above the ground in the back to optimize air flow. Ive also implemented undervolting to minimize heat generation from the CPU.
When playing games (mostly Aion) which shouldnt be that high demaning, I've experienced BSOD, Fragmented screen, High temperatures (92C) and high temp shutdown (unknown temp).
I have tried
Without any superior results.
My guess is that I have to contact Dell for mobo replacement again. This is prob. my 4th time since I first got a M1530. Got a replacement laptop in januari. In total, i believe Ive had +7 ..
I'm looking for a stable driver for use with Windows Vista SP1 64-bit on a Dell XPS M1530 with 4 GB of RAM and a GeForce 8600M GT 256MB GDDR3. I tried 174.34 but it was unstable and caused some issues.
I require that it uses WHQL no modified INFs, games that I am playing are CoD4, UT3, NFS Most Wanted, and Company of Heroes.
This one has a newer CCC and display driver than the last. Download is up at: ftp://ftp.dell.com/video/R258233.exe
Display driver is only slightly newer. 8.683.2.1 is the version number. Originally released for "Studio Laptop - 1458" with Radeon 5430 and 5450 graphics. Supports:

Wondering if anyone has some recommendations on what drivers to use with this configuration. I have the Dell 5530 Broadband modem and the broadcom swipe sensor without drivers.
I can't seem to get the Vista x64 versions to install.
Is dell control point recommended or not? I have the beta versions of the nVidia drivers and they seem OK. Are there any other Dell drivers that are recommended that work in Win7 x64 or should I just wait for Dell to put some up on the support site?
I running a z690 with win7, and my blu ray drive isn't visibile, don't have the correct driver for the Mata bd-mlt uj232as, and the z590 driver from sony's site won't install because its not a z5-series. Any advice? or anyone have the driver from there Vista64bit?
If anyone is curious, Windows7 is really smooth and quick compared to the Vista64bit, and only running 60 processes after everything got installed.
Does anyone with VAIO Z and installed with win7 x64 notice the fingerprint driver have a little problem?

I've installed win7(32-bit) on my FZ21S and all seems to be working smoothly. A couple of issues have popped up though.
1. SFEP driver- I've downloaded the latest win7 version from the FTP, and also have a back-up, and cannot for the life of me figure out how to install it. I went to the device manager, (as some1 reccomended) under Human Interface Devices- and it isnt present.
I've also managed to get the recovery disks running half way- by this I mean- Im able to get inside the application and select SFEP to be installed. It begins, and then prompts me to put disk2 in...that is where it hangs, and eventually crashes.
2. Ive got the volume controls (round controller near AV mode) working, as well as the FnMute button.
However, I cant seem to get the Fn keys for brightness working.
3. And finnally, the AV mode and S1 buttons are non-functional.
I have just installed win7 64bit on my FZ290. Everything worked perfectly except i could not find the driver for touchpad. I ve read all different posts in this forum, found many helpful info for installing win7, but i just cant find the way to get this touchpad working like before, i mean the scroll bar on the top and right side of the touchpad which allow me to scroll the page, going back a page without click a key
Have looked at hours worth of posts regarding the camera, win7, etc. Does anybody have a direct link to the proper camera driver for a z690 running windows 7 x64? Also, if you have a link for 32 bit that would help with the 'ole lady's laptop too.
Anybody else install an Intel SSD into their Z? Just installed a G2 160gb drive a few days ago and holy s. it flys, but I do have some concerns about *low (200-205MBPS Max Seq Read) benchmark scores in HD Tune. We should start a seperate thread on the Z and aftermarket SSD drives.
I just upgraded my 8200 to Win 7 Enterprise. After formatting my HD, all drivers were installed automatically except the drivers for the the three programmable buttons next to the power button. Even without the driver, the mail and internet buttons work, but they cannot be reprogrammed. I have tried to download from Acers site, but they don't have a driver for 7 yet. The XP and Vista drivers did not work with Win7.
However, poking around the European Vaio link site I've found a couple of news: first an updated Graphics driver here, but also poking around (in the Originally Installed section) saw an updated Alps Pointing device driver. The version I have installed is 7.2.* while the one for the VGN-Z51XG is a 7.5.*. Downloading the driver I could see that it supports two finger browsing, pinching to zoom and a couple of other features.
Nifty I thought; however I cannot install the driver in my computer - it says "Your operating system is not supported".
Has anyone else tried this? I thought that the pointing HW in all Vaio Zs was the same? Surely Alps cannot build a driver that only works in Win 7 x64 Professional but not Ultimate?
Can someone with a Win7 x64 Professional try to install the driver and then report back with both succcess or failure?
I used to have Vista 32-bit on here and I recently upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit. The problem is that the Sony website doesn't release Windows 7 64-bit drivers for my model as it is only sold with Vista 32-bit.
As you can see, there is no drop down menu anywhere to select which operating system I have.
And here: [url] it says that Windows 7 is not supported. (I have ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and my computer seemed to check out and pass all the system requirements.)
where all necessary driver updates for my computer are, as many things I've noticed either don't function the same or at all as they used to when I had Vista?
Here's a list of all the problems that I've noticed so far.
- Scroll on touch pad didn't work (Resolved by downloading Synaptics drivers)
- Plugging into the headphone jack didn't do anything (Resolved by downloading Realtek drivers but Windows Update keeps insisting I install their Realtek drivers which brought up the problem again)
- Volume buttons change the volume in very tiny increments and doesn't show the levels on screen (Major issue for me.)
- Doesn't support Dual/Multi Monitors
- Doesn't recognize MIDI Controllers (Resolved. Not sure how.)
- Card reader doesn't work. (Another major problem.)
- Webcam doesn't work. (Built-in mic seems to work fine.)
- "AV Mode" button does nothing (I've never had a use for this button but before it would make the whole screen go black.)
I moddified LV2GO nvidia 190.40 beta driver INF for VAIO notebooks. Vaio Brightness control is full working now.
I modded it for nvidia gf 9300m gs and tested on vaio vgn-cs with win vista 32bit but should be compatible with some of the newer VAIO models.
-h264 hardware GPU-decoding is supporing now (It utilizes only a few percent of the CPU)
1. If you already have an existing nVidia driver installed, uninstall it with its Uninstaller, then use Driver Sweeper to remove any remaining files/registry keys and reboot before you attempt to install this driver.
2. Overwrite the existing nv_disp.inf in 19040_win7x32.exe with my moddified v190.40 INF file.
My moddified v190.40 INF - here Reuploaded NVIDIA driver v190.40 - here
After trying multiple times (both automatically and manually) to install the Nvidia drivers it shows an error saying "you must install an Intel driver first". I realize this is the HP forum, but i've tried contacting Intel with no luck on top of trying every Intel driver that looks even remotely relevant. (most of which error while installing mentioning my computer lacks the requirements for the install).
I've tried updating the drivers automatically through windows on top of disable/uninstall and restart, but the same problem keeps arising.
Imaged with preconfigured company Windows 7 x64 image I have used hundreds of times before via MDT. WDS packaged T440p drivers (downloaded from Lenovo website) are injected as part of the MDT installation process.
All windows updates applied (except for the Lenovo PM Device Driver otherwise the thing no longer reboots or shuts down properly anymore) BIOS flashed to latest T440p revision.
Run Lenovo System Update to install hotkey drivers and receive the following:
As you can see Win7 x64... driver says no.
Restarted and tried again... error.
Tried downloading the driver manually from [URL] .... Same error.
Searched for and downloaded version 5.40 .... Same error.
I ran Lenovo System Update 2 days ago on another T440p laptop, may have been a slightly different internal spec... not sure but I'm fairly sure the driver was named differently in System Update. The driver Installed on that machine fine and functions as intended.
The driver could very well could have been updated since then I guess. I do also know this is a newer batch of T440p's as the box configuration that it ships in has changed and looks completely different.
I recently bought a 500GB/7200 RPM hard drive to my laptop and I decided to install Windows RC 64 bit. Before doing the hard drive update, I had installed the 7 RC 32 bit since it came out.
Now, I can't recall when I had the 7 RC 32bit that the laptop's fan was running on full blast after sleep/stand-by. It is also loud when you start-up the computer from a restart or after a shut-down. The fan speeds down to a quiet speed/rpm after...I'd say 2-3 minutes.
I installed everything listed on HP's website for my laptop (drivers and such after installing 7 RC 64bit): [url]
I noticed that the Nvidia driver on HP's website was not a recent one, so I hopped on Nvidia's website to get a newer driver instead (186.03 I believe).
I have my laptop set to Power saving's mode and I only bump it to Balanced when I'm doing something heavy (like iTunes encoding, etc).
I did check to see if maybe my anti-virus program that's installed (avast...AVG didn't install when I went to 64) was doing scans or such, but it isn't. Well, actually I take that back...does avast do a very slow/quiet scan in the background? I see the HDD status light blinks steady, but when I pause avast, there is not steady blinking.
I researched I need the Intel SATA AHCI Driver for performing a clean Windows 7 installation
1. Mobile Express Chipset SAAT AHCI controler drivers from the (a) Intel websites (b) Lenovo website and (c) extracting drivers from running system 2. tried supplying drivers on DVD/CD and USB 3. tried to integrate drivers into Windows 7 Installation using RT7Lite 4. did bios update 5. switched from AHCO to compatible mode
In any case it finds the driver as the correct one (when I click hide drivers that are not compatible, the one remains). But always displays no driver found and doesn't continue setup.
This seems to be a bug!!! 1. Is there a way to fix this and perform a clean Windows 7 installation without recovery? 2. Am I trying the wrong driver, but have to install a driver for a different device first???
I am about to replace the HDD with an SDD and there can not use recovery!
I was all set to buy an M4400 last week until I started reading about all the bios/driver/software issues people have had with them. Is the W500 a better choice for someone looking for stability out of the box?
My XPS just arrived yesterday, and i am having lots of trouble with the wireless connection. I have tried being close and far from my wireless box and it doesnt fix the problem. My connection is great when its working, but it disconnects for about 20 seconds very often. Its extremely anoying, and I dont want to have to return this laptop as I really like it. Is there a location where I can update my notebook to hopefully resolve the problem?
DISCLAIMER! - I will not be responsible for what you do with your cards. However, I wanted to create a thread that would show those that want to play what the 8800m GTXs are capable of.
Before we get started. Let me explain the theory and the reasoning behind this whole thing.
Dell is not in the business of creating computers that burn up, and as most are very aware, they factor in a lot of room for overclocking and game enthusiasts that want to push their hardware to the limit. Here however, they did a "no no" IMO. However it's also the only way that they could tame the beast the 8800 is.
At the heart of the problem is the Dell PSU which is only rated at 230 watts and is close to being maxed and general heat generated by the cards themselves.
The standard 8800s as they arrive from dell, are set to run @ 1.00 volts. This however is a long shot from desktop versions of the cards running @ over 1.3 volts which are near identical in architecture. (some desktop users volt their's to over 1.4 volts!!!!)
What gives? Well from doing a little research, I found out that Dell, is not alone in undervolting these cards and Clevo along with dell does this as well except they undervolt even more! Down to 0.95V!!
Now the benefit of the undervolt, is that you generate a lot less heat. However the less voltage you allow the card, the less stable the card becomes at higher clock frequencies. From reading the posts on this forum alone, I noticed that most people run into artifacting between 620mhz and 645mhz core clocks and 950 memory clocks. The reason for this, is that at those clocks, you are asking the GPUs to do more work, then the voltage supplied to them will allow. All cards are different, but for the most part will run into stability problems before they run into heat problems. Testing this, I found that the GPU fans don't even kick on high during Crysis a game that should push any GPU and its fans to high................................
I just received three new T440p laptops using Win7 Pro. Unfortunately, the wireless link to keeps disconnecting ever so frequently on all the machines. I have updated the Wireless drivers, reinstalled the BIOS and even optimised power options to enhance the wireless perfomance but none have worked.
