Driver for 8600M GT?
Hello. I am trying to update the driver for my 8600M GT (I have an Asus G1S laptop) but whenever I run the installation it tells me there is nothing for it to update. I'm trying to update in the interest of the Crysis and Timeshift demos, and upon installing the demo for Timeshift the installation specifically said that I needed to update, but the update did not work. How can I get a new driver for my card?

hi community,
this is my thread. really.
i got geforce 8600m gt inside an inspiron 1720 of dell.
i cant use any forceware driver except 165.01, at the point where 169.04 is released.
any other driver will tell me at installation start:
the nvidia ... could not locate any drivers that are compatible eith your harware"

what is that? does anybody know this problem? it really upsets me that nvidia hardware looks like not supported by nvidia driver ( i guess this is not true in general ; )) it took me one whole day to find the one working driver, after i installed xp prof sp2 x32 (before there was vista, which i did not like).
i am really searching the web for this but i do not find a solution.
dell for example could not deliver the correct driver for a dells system (!)

i am really tired of caring about that, since it seems to have no proper solution. does anybody know better? please....

if u want i can post a complete everest report or whatever details you want.

intel core duo t7500
sigmatel high definition audio codec <= seemed to interfer eith the problem, but im not sure

thank you very mutch in advance

first: because when i read it the first time, it did not appear in my vocabulary, but i fixed that ; )

second in the list of Laptop-based GO cards,

"8600" seems not to appear, according to firefox search and my own.

but ill look up your link more closely tonight, it could mean very much to me.

but anyway... to it took me 2 weeks to get this information. is there anywhere a big sign with "you need alternate driver for laptops" that i just missed to see?

so long,

Looking at the list of drivers, that seems to be for the nVidia 'Go' cards. The 8600M is not a 'Go' card, it is described as a GeForce 8600M

by the way, this is the kind of comment which says "hey, you are wrong. try something else" and therefore not very helpful. please consider this in future.

but keep on, finally ill get what i need : )

update
ok this is how far i get:
at
[url="http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=9243"]http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=9243[/url]
is written
"nVidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit"
which hopefully is my problem.
then there is written
"If your graphics card is one of those, you can use our Modded INF to alter installation restrictions:"
my grafic card is not on those lists. so can i make use of these lists?

please correct me if i misunderstand the content of that page, honestly.

im kind of confused, sorry.
originally i hoped to go to the driver download, select
typ: geForce
series: 8 series
family: GeForce 8600 GT
OS: Win XP
Language: english
and download and install my driver. but this does not work so i wonder. the " For more information click here." for laptop drivers is a dead link.



thank you anyway,

Try either of these links:

[url="http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=15381"]http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index....showtopic=15381[/url]

There's a 'Driver' and a 'Modded INF' link at the top of the first post, download both of these. Run the driver EXE which will extract the installation files to a folder of your choosing.
Copy the 'Modded INF' you downloaded into this folder and overwrite the INF there. Run the setup and it should recognize your GPU and install.

ok gotit, thx.
in the meantime, i got the same results as the poster from
[url="http://perezj.blogspot.com/search/label/laptop"]http://perezj.blogspot.com/search/label/laptop[/url]
so i ended up with some dell support which told me to do exactly this.

i now have 3000 marks @ 3Dmark06 basic, what do you think of that?
btw, with vista & official driver i have nearly the same 3000 marks with my sistem. that seems very little to me. any opinion?

I know you got your score for a laptop, but that score is still very pathetic. One of the most powerful computers owned by a middle class person got a score of over 25,000.

This information available from NVIDIA.com explains why we cannot find these notebook graphic cards drivers from their website.

Currently, the only way to get updates for most NVIDIA laptop or notebook graphics cards is though the notebook provider.
