Do a search in the Forceware (Driver) forum for laptop drivers, as far as I know they arent officially supported by Nvidia, so you need specific drivers for a mobile Geforce card.

The only way to get desktop drivers to work on a mobile chipset is to use a modified .inf file. You can get them from www.laptopvideo2go.com.
