Feedback: no support for GT320M. I thought it was probably just a mistake (it says "300M-series notebook GPUs" after all), so downloaded and tried to install the drivers, but it really doesn't support it...

All seems well so far - no errors to report.

If you have a notebook and have checked the supported products section and you believe your notebook should be supported, please feel free to post here and I will pass it a long to the driver team. Keep in mind, we only support the operating systems that your notebook maker officially supports. This means if your notebook does not support XP, the the Verde XP display drivers will not install on your notebook if it is using Windows XP.

To help our driver team, please provide the Device ID and Subvendor ID. You can get this information by downloading and running the utility GPU-Z:

Having the same issues I was having with the previous driver:

I have a Lenovo T61, Vista 32bit with Quadro NVS 140m.

I have a dual monitor setup, with the other monitor being my VIZIO VO32LF 1080p HDTV connected via VGA. My laptop screen works fine, but the image in my Vizio gets stretched beyond the borders. I'm trying to make it work @ 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz. Anyone else having problems with the image in a dual monitor setup getting stretched?

This is currently the only thing holding me back from updating drivers. I don't know why this keeps happening.
