My DV7T Quad has the 320M card in it, but when I pull up the drivers for my system on HP's website, it shows drivers only for the 230M. I assumed that perhaps the 230M drivers would install on a 320M card, however that is not the case.
Is there a reason why there is no 320M drivers on HP's website? I can't imagine NVidia releasing hardware when they have no drivers for it. Right now I'm forced to use drivers that are in the "SwSetup" folder in order to install the drivers for my card...it appears to be some type of generic NVidia driver...which is totally not cool. I called up HP about it and they confirmed there is no 320M driver but had no explanation for it.
Just an FYI -- HP has refreshed the Pavilion dv6t and dv7t line with some updates.
First, HP is now providing Intel Core i3 and Core i5 processor options on the standard models only with an optional upgrade to the NVIDIA GeForce GT 320M. (The base config is the Intel HD graphics and then the GeForce G 105M).

Second, HP is now making the 1 GB GeForce GT 320M the new standard option for the Pavilion dv6t Quad Edition and the dv7t Quad Edition. This option has replaced the GeForce GT 230M.
I am considering a new notebook in a month or two. and the Macbook Pro is in my list. I am wondering if the GeForce 320M has been benchmarked, and if it's signifcantly better than the 9400M GT, and if it can handle StarCraft 2 and maybe some acceleration in FireWorks and Photoshop?
I just upgraded my old Windows XP to Windows 7 and guess what ... there is no drivers for my graphics card provided by SONY. On the sony web site we can find the following information: "dear user, try Vista graphics drivers. They MAY work."- - I might say that this is really professional... so, the vista graphics drivers for my GeForce doesn`t work. I receive all the time the BSOD.
This is quite a good graphics card so I cannot understand why there is no drivers from Nvidia or Sony... any ideas? Maybe You know where can I find good drivers for my card? ----- My laptop is Sony VGN-FE28h with NVidia GeForce Go 7400 with TurboCache supporting 256MB
i have Dell Inspiron 9300 With Nvidia Graphics card
I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate

Dv5t, the problem of having non-optimal /under par performance of Nvidia Graphics accelerator 9200/9600 used with Windows Vista.
I have done some troubleshooting myself, but yet to find a working solution.
My configuration is :
Pavilion Dv5t CTO Notebook. 15.4" diagonal WSXGA+ LCD. Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor P7350 (2.0GHz) Current Running Resolution 1680 x 1050. 3GB system RAM. NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS with 256 MB of RAM. Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit.
The degraded performance I am talking about is not specifically for games and 3D applications. Nor is playing games and running 3D rendering my primary purpose. The various benchmarks and tests mentioned at this site maybe more directed towards running specific games and other applications............
I have a hp compaq v6000 laptop with a GeForce Go 6150. The last driver I could find for it was made in 2006. I was wondering if there was any newer drivers or some solution either official or unofficial that could make it so I can test OpenGl 3.0-3.3 dependent programs on here.
I have a Dell Inspiron E1705, Core 2 dou, 2 GB Ram, Very powerful laptop. I have an ATI Video card in it that I've been trying hard to upgrade to a Geforce. I bought 6 till with no luck at all, I bought all of them off ebay, the last one was a couple days ago, when I got it, I installed it and everything was working perfectly, I was so happy cuz this is the first one that actually works, after 1 hour of using it, red flickers started appearing on the screen, I restarted, tried different drivers, tried placing it again.. no luck at all . Now I have different colored lines and blinking pixels all over the screen, the background changes colors.. yellow, red, green.. and its not just on windows.. Bios, safe mode, everywhere.. I put my old ATI back and everything is working fine. I'm planning to send it back again to the seller, I attached some pics. I have a 90 w adapter but I dont think its a heating or power problems.
I am getting a bit bored waiting for the new SXPS 16 (and the free Windows 7 upgrade), thought I would start a new discussion.
How do you guys think about the Nvidia GeForce 9700M, 9800M, 160M or 260M in a Dell Studio XPS laptop?
I like the fact that Nvidia is constantly updating their drivers and I also like the Hybrid Power and Hybrid SLI features. Most importantly, with an Nvidia GPU, I can turn the SXPS into a hackintosh, making it the PERFECT laptop in the market.
I've got a HP Pavilion dv6000z notebook. It came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit but, I recently changed the OS to Windows XP Home Edition SP3 32-bit. It was a completely new installation of the OS.
Now, I've got a weird problem. I watch the NBA games on this website for international viewers at ilp.nba.com and it goes through an external company named RayV. They provide their own software to watch the games on, I believe it is a p2p kind-a program [if that helps?]; RayV Viewer. In this, the broadcasted video size is 608x336 or something like that and averages about 800k-1000k speed/bandwidth?. They call it the "HD" version.
The problem is, the video continuously "stutters" every 4-7 seconds.
My room mate has the newer dv5t series notebook with an intel core 2 duo 2.0ghz processor nd an intel integrated graphics adapter [x3100/4500?] nd the video works absolutely perfectly on his notebook. Same goes for my friends Apple Macbook [old "lower spec'd" white version] however with mine it has this continuous stuttering problem. I've tried increasing the process priority through task manager but that didn't help either. Most HD videos work fine in WMP [.mkv 720p] though they stutter every now nd then too.
Like about every 10 - 13 minutes, maybe a little bigger gap but it happens nonetheless.
I've tried the 182.08 drivers from laptopvideo2go.com & the DOX 182.46 version as well as the 86.38 version from windows update but none of them have been able to solve it. Any ideas as to what I could try?
I'm currently downloading the beta of Windows 7 to see how that works on this notebook, I believe the RC is just about to be released & is on some sites so could give that a shot but would love to solve it in XP itself.
Are these safe to install on my DV7T? I notice HP has never issued an official graphics driver update for this notebook. The one and only version from them is from November 2008.
The release highlights has me salivating - particularly the bit about a 45% increase in Mirror's Edge with antialiasing enabled. Since there are about 7 months of driver updates in this release I should see some big improvements in my games.
Dell XPS M1330 - nVidia GeForce 8400M GS - Copper Mod - Step by Step Guide
Dell XPS M1330 Notebook with nVidia GeForce 8400M GS GPU has an inadequate Thermal Cooling Assembly. It uses a Thermal Cooling Pad between the GPU and the GPU Thermal Cooling Assembly instead of a direct contact between the two with a Thermal Compound. This leads to overheating the GPU and damaging it along with other components. The solution is to replace the existing Thermal Cooling Pad with a Copper Sheet and a Thermal Compound.
Note: This Copper Mod does not solve problems arising from a weak die/packaging material set in certain versions of GPU. Their failure appears related to the combination of the interaction between the chip material set and the system design. The combination of limited thermal management and frequent power cycling is particularly challenging for the GPU. Dell is offering a 12 Month Limited Warranty Enhancement specific to this issue. However, this Copper Mod might help delay the failure by improving the thermal management.
I was wondering if I could possibly install a new graphics card into my HP laptop? My laptop is a HP 15-d051sa 15.6" so you can search it up on Google. Â My specs: RAM: 8gb HDD: 1TB Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU N3510 2Ghz (2mb cache) Graphics: Intel HD Graphics
