    I was reading over at slashgear.com that the ion le is just a crippled by drivers ion. I want dx10 support with my acer aspire revo 1600. Can someone tell me if im doing this right.

    I want to fool the driver to think that the Ion LE is an Ion.

    ION device id is 0876
    ION Le device id is 087F

    so in the NV_DISP.inf file I have

    %NVIDIA_DEV.0876.01% = Section020, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0876
    %NVIDIA_DEV.087F.01% = Section022, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_087F

    So do I need to make the 087F line to read section20 or make the 0876 line read section22?

    here the original thread at slashgear

    I figured it out, the Ion LE needs to match the the Ion so changing the 087F to section020 gave me full dx10 support.
    Completely Bonkers says thanks.

    its a nettop but it can be done with a netbook too, it actually boost the performance by quite a bit
