Hi Eddicts,
usually laptop manufacturers supply their own drivers so check out you laptop makers web site for any updates. This is starting to change however and both of the big two (nvidia and ATI) now supply 'mobility drivers' although whether they'll work for you depends on the graphic solution.
If you post your laptop make and model we will try and find out for you..

You can call in the United States this number: 866-600-2367. This is "Benq" but they only make monitors and projectors, but I'm sure they know the correct links. This company is a relatively small Taiwanese (Chinese) company.

Not many people know that you can simply copy the .sys files from the C:\NVIDIA driver folder and paste over the ones at C:\Windows\System32\drivers

Reboot and you'll have the new driver installed, regardless of what it was intended for or not (desktop or laptop.)

you're kiddin' me?which .sys files shoud i copy it?are u sure it'll work?guide me please.Thanks
 


This is for 32 bit. 64 bit may need slight adjustment to the originating folder where the driver is extracted to and located.

Extract the driver to C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\260.89\Vista\English\Display.Driver and close the installer immediately after extraction. (<<<The space shown there is created when posting by the forum. Disregard it.)

Rename nvlddmkm.sy_ in that folder to nvlddmkm.sys. Copy and paste it over the one at C:\Windows\System32\drivers

Reboot and look in the device manager for the new version and date shown.

------

Before doing so, create a restore point for any reason, if it may be needed.

A mobility driver for this version can be found here: NVIDIA DRIVERS 260.89 WHQL

I would also ask that you create a thread in the support section (or I can do it for you) as this section is primarily for updates.
