Updating graphics driver xi3650

Postby Melrose » Mon Sep 28, 2009 11:13

So I was thinking to update the driver to my graphics card but which one should I load. The driver for the 9600M GT(works but no support?) or the one that says Nvidia hybrid graphics. I'm using the 9600 almost all the time so thats the one to choose right?

Well, when I let the NVIDIA driver download site detect my hardware, it says this:

The GeForce M series and GeForce Go series notebook GPUs use drivers that have been customized by the notebook manufacturers to support hot key functions, power management functions, lid close and suspend/resume behavior. NVIDIA has worked with some notebook manufacturers to provide notebook-specific driver updates, however, most notebook driver updates must come from the notebook manufacturer. Additionally, the desktop GeForce graphics drivers will not install on Geforce M series and Quadro M series notebook GPU's.


So since Fujitsu-Siemens doesn't offer any driver upgrades, you're stuck with the pre-installed ones. GRIPES.

Well, there is a 14/05/09 release for NVIDIA Hybrid Graphics on the support page of this computer, that will install. It's equivalent to the 185.26 release of 9600M drivers. The latest one would be 186.81, but you take what you can get.
