    I am currently running - Driver: nvlddmkm 7.15.11.0129 (ForceWare 101.29) / Vista. I would like to run newer ForceWare drivers as they would be of a better advantage. I'm using a notebook and I have already found a website that would allow you to install drivers such as the 169 ForceWare driver. Yet this was of no luck as I had only 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768 resolutions supported. This is not practical as I have a wide screen notebook on which I'd like to run the full 1440 x 900. I am not at home right now so any suggestions can't be tried out until like another 6 - 7 hours. This is the link to my gpu specs if they are needed (note I don't run OC most of the time, it's almost always at stock).

    Any help is appreciated.

    Go to Nvidia's website. Download newest drivers. Uninstall old drivers. Install new drivers. Whats the problem?

    On the notebook (and I take all notebooks) the drivers are different, therefore the newer drivers are for desktop GPUs. The latest ForceWare fo the notebook is the one I have. But since it is possible to install the newer ones with some file changes I would like to do that.

    Hmm.... Looks like Nvidia doesn't really support it.

    It seems so. If I can find a link of the page I found realted to installing the desktop versions on the notebook ones I'll post it.

    Found: www.laptopvideo2go.com which is currently offline.
