I’ve spent countless hours searching for a stable driver for the GeForce Go 6200.
I’ve managed to install various drivers which run for a while but after a few minutes glitches start to appear in the form of horizontal lines in 3D or colour marks in video mode until I get a black screen for a few seconds, the system recovers and vice versa.
Is this an over-hearing issue? Any ideas for a stable driver
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ18M Laptop (Running Vista Home Premium) which I would like to update to Windows 7 Ultimate.
On running MS compatibility Checker it points out that the Driver for Geforce 8400M GT is not compatible.
When I try to find a new driver via NVIDIA I keep being referred to Sony who seem to have washed their hands of the problem See reply message below.
Can you point me at a driver that will work with Windows 7 or has anyone updated to Windows 7 with this Geforce 8400M GT driver and had any success.
I seem to be going round in circles trying to find a solution.
i.e. NVIDIA say go to Sony and SONY say go to NVIDIA
I note from searching the net that there are many people out there with Vaio FZ models having similar problems and that Sony seem to have created upgrades for quiet a number of their models but have stated “Please note that your computer is not eligible for the Upgrade to Windows 7.”
This I find disgraceful for a Company to completely wash its hands of supporting a machine that is barely 2 years old and the fact the New OS from MS is seen as an industry standard which they will be delivering in future. They refer to it as 3rd Party Software which their reply would infer they are not going to support in their machines. I wonder if that applies to their latest models?
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.
Ok so I have a replacement coming in form my old 1640. When I look at the build, it has the intel wifi 6200. My current system has the Intel 5300 with Wifi Link. What I want to know is if the 6200 is better than the 5300.
I have a Acer Aspire 5720G, with a Geforce 8400M GS graphics card apparently, i have every other driver installed for xp. The only one i cant seem to get to work is the graphics driver. I have tried Google and downloaded numerous drivers but i cant seem to find one that will work, they all either wont install because they don't recognize the hardware, or with custom inf's from laptopvideo2go they install then when i boot windows, then say they're incompatible and have reverted back to the default VGA drivers.
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 a dell inspiron 1720 with a GeForce 8400M GS 128 ya i know it sucks but anyways when i go to dell or do a google all im seen is that the 8400 is a 256 ddr is this right? i run a program called TechPowerUp GPU and its saying 128 to did they make a 128 and a 256?
When this card comes out at the end of the year, will it get the same 3dmarks scores and fps in old/new games as the desktop version or will it be a little faster then the 8700m? I hope its going to be same as the desktop version.
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.
im sturggling with my laptopvideo2go drivers iv tried for days to get it working but the driver and inf file doesnt seem to change it to a geforce card in device manager and therefore gaming performance is terrible
I've got a Dell Inspiron 9300. Recently, I flashed my vBios and had to do a blind flash. I've got a flash drive with all of the things needed on it, but I'm not so sure about the ROM. It was the only one I could find on the net, and it hasn't worked so far. I left the flash drive in for almost two hours, and it finally did the two beeps. It was on full auto mode and it didn't restart; it just sat there.
I guess I'm begging someone to send me a default bios for a Dell i9300's go 6800 gpu (NV41, according to dell, not sure if it matters).
Also, for clarification, the "backlight" refers to the monitor emitting a glow while still being blank, yes? Because as it is, the monitor doesn't even come on, much less emit any light.
I have a precision m70 and I wanted to know if I can use the geforce 6800go video card that was for an inspiron 9300? Also, can I use the 17" screen from inspiron 9300 or XPS gen 2 on a precision m70? I prefer to use the XPS gen 2 screen because of the darker bezel.
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.
DV9420us, had been dropped, and as a result a couple keys got lost and it wouldn't turn on anymore. I take a quick look at the machine, lights up but no video and it kept on restarting. "It's gonna cost $50, and another $40 for a new keyboard if it works. It's got about 50% chances to be fixed, if it doesn't work you get your money back." Guy agrees, i leave with the money and the laptop.
I get back home and take it apart. I remove the mobo, remove the cooler and CPU from the mobo, wrap it in aluminum foil leaving only the northbridge/GPU (the 6150 is onboard) and southbridge uncovered, as to protect the other parts from excess heat. Preheated oven to 190C then put board in for 7 minutes. Took board out, let it cool.
In the meantime i was busy cleaning the cooler - serving as "thermal grease" for the CPU was a piece of TINFOIL glued onto the cooler. This is ridiculous, it's a 2.2GHz chip. On the GPU, there's this sh***y thermal pad. No wonder the solder broke even though the chip was epoxied to the board. I applied thermal grease to both CPU and GPU, the crap thermal pad will have to stay however, as i had nothing i could use as shims there.
Put everything back together, and voila, we get video. It still needs some minor work done (besides a new keyboard) such as replacing the touchpad cable as it works erratically, but it's running. Shown running Ubuntu as that's the only bootable disc i found around the house.
