Since I can't seem to really find them anywhere. These are in 3dmark05, not overclocked, run x3 rounded to the nearest 10 on some. Geforce 7600go 128mb off my Sony Viao VGN-FE790, 2 gigs ram 2.0ghz core2 duo.

I had a problem with Vista in drivers in the 100's but I solved them using the new control panel and setting the Antialiasing and Anisotropic filtering to use the 3D application setting. Basically, I would first select quality (performance automatically sets those settings to use the 3D app) and hit apply to initialize the settings, then select use advanced 3d settings, select the previously mentioned 2 settings, and then hit apply once more.

3dMark05 has a variation of about 8 points in either direction with my computer.

OS Version driver version: Performance / Quality

Windows XP v84.73: 2996 / 2925
Windows Vista v100.65: 3035 / 3030 (1.1% perf gain)
Windows Vista v97.46: 2510 (16% perf loss)
Windows Vista v98.02: 2530 (15% perf loss)

The 90's drivers still have that performance hit, but congrats to nVidia for finally getting 100's working, and performing faster in Vista!

Use 100.65? Or is that not available for a GO card?

not alot available for the moment for go

Just one driver, if u want to use newer drivers, u need to use a custom .inf

www.laptopvideo2go.com has a modded .inf for most mobile Nvidia gpu's. I am currently using he 100.65 with a 7900 gtx gefore go. And all seems to be working fine.

How much memory do you have in that?? The system I built for a friend originally had 1gig of memory and XP and ran fine, he had pretty significant performance loss when he upgraded to VISTA (about 20%), adding an extra gig of memory increased his performance by over 10%.

You would go to your control pannel and open it and click on nvidia drivers and just click on remove only my video card drivers ,and once that is done it will ask you to reboot ,so reboot and when windows comes back on ,click on the modded drivers once you have down loaded them and install them http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=13030

But adding another gig of ram will help you to.

Ok, now updated for the 100 series. Actually has a performance gain, congrats!

Not too supprising, in relative terms your CPU and RAM config is faster for games than your graphics card, Vista has the additional overhead on CPU and RAM but graphics processing is actually more efficient in Vista, so with drivers which are as well optimised as in XP we should start seeing performnce increases in Vista for those people with good CPU's

from the installer, or the unpacked files?

Unpack the files, stir in your modded .inf, then run the setup program.

ok, thx

did this on the laptop and after reboot, went to device manager, and I saw a ! and the GPU, so I did choose properties and did choose to update current drivers, so went to those .inf, installed, rebooted and got old drivers back, weird

Yesterday, updated the drivers by the MS update site and got now newer driver installed, I guess :)

Gonna have a look on this tomorrow, when laptop is available
