bloody: hey bloody, did you manage to solve the problem with the internal screen tearing like that on the CPU tests? if not, how about you tell us which version of windows you are using? Which model do you have? Is it the one with ZM-86 or what? The thing is that the beta drivers work like a dream for me and I have the ZM-86, Vista x64, and I get a nice 8,200 3D MARKS. Obviously there are higher scores but they use a stripped down version of vista that is unstable for everyday use. however, 7,200 marks seems way too low because even with the zm-80, i have heard people getting 8,000 marks. Since the cpu test is all software, try anything you can with cpu: set the power plan to "power saver" then to "balanced", and then to "high performance" and see if there is a difference.
vilu: as you see, the beta works fantastic on vista x64. As you notice, the zip package that the drivers come in are a whopping 100 MB rather than the standard ~50 MB from ATI because they include both x86 and x64 driver packages. I recommend using x64 to unleash the potential of this fantastic laptop.
BTW: i noticed that the internal display seemed very washed out sitting next to my 18,5" widescreen HD ACER monitor, so I did some color correction in ATI CCC. There was a bluish tint to it and colors seems dull. All I did was change AVIVO color to +25 (adds nice vibrancy to the images) and under the color options, I did the following: RED - gamma is at 1.10, brightness is at 1.05, and contrast is 1.00; GREEN - gamma is at 1.05, brightness is at 1.05, and contrast is 1.00; and finnally BLUE - gamma is at 1.05, brightness is at -25, and contrast is 1.00. This should increase the quality of the screen DRASTICALLY as before I used to hate playing games on it as it looked just plain bad, but now, I prefer it to my ACER.
