    Good, when I had a laptop with an AMD graphics card, I can remember all kinds of issue with Acer never releasing drivers.

    about time i think it was the OEM company's that did not want drivers to install from the driver makers in the first place whats lame realy as some games will not work on nvidia m GPUs if it was not updated and laptop makers Never update there video drivers

    being an owner of an ATI Mobility Radeon or an Nvidia M chip can realy suck (all we need now is ATI to do it)

    That's great to hear. I'm stuck with Dell not releasing notebook drivers for my ATI Mobility Radeon.

    I hope that this strategic thinking about the shift towards laptop-only use will lead to the creation of a new species of laptop - one that can fit full strength desktop graphics cards, and run at full power, sacrificing the battery power and casual mobility in trade. There is a market for it, and I'm in it.

    Yet, I still can't get updated drivers for my GO 7600.... maybe they'll add it in sometime.

    about time. i've never had trouble finding ATI drivers. nVidia, on the other hand...

    it's a no-brainer they should have had from the beginning. now, about that "card-renaming" scam that you keep trying to pull, nvidia...

    Yup, looks like I'm left out in the cold too. Oh well, time to upgrade this POS anyway, it's getting long in the tooth.

    Hmm, got an HP (Compaq) 8510w with a QuadroFX 570M which should be coverered but HP kindly tell you its not supported when you try to install. Nice one NVidia! You could have let us know you don't support HP as well when checking for supported manufacturers!
