Install the latest Nvidia Drivers on your Notebook

Graphic card drivers for notebooks are usually not updated that often by the manufacturer of the Notebook. Nvidia on the other hand does not provide access to many graphic card drivers for Notebook graphic cards on their website and the desktop graphic cards cannot be installed on notebooks. This is obviously a problem for notebook users who need to update the drivers for their built-in graphics cards, for instance to benefit from new features they make available or improved gaming performance.

The guys from Laptop Video 2 Go have come up with a solution to this problem. They provide an inf generator and driver downloads so that most notebook users can updated their notebook's graphic card driver by downloading those files from the website. The modded inf files not only work with most notebook graphic cards but do provide access to several hidden features as well that fix issues and add tweaks to the drivers.

You select a driver that you want to install, download the modded inf file from the website, replace the inf from the driver package with the modded one and start the installation of the driver.

On the page you simply pick the driver version you want to use, whether you want it to focus on performance or quality, and integrate tweaks and fixes in the driver. Some of the issues are only for specific notebooks or types while the majority of tweaks and fixes should work for all mobile systems.

I suggest you read the FAQ on the site which explains the process in detail and provides links to the pages that are needed to download the files.

The site offers download links for the most recent Nvidia desktop drivers as well so that you can start the download right from the page if you want.

      Sounds like something I ought to follow up, I’ve got an nVidia card in my laptop and I’m pretty sure that having had to reinstall XP from scratch I lost the optimum drivers for it.

      Thanks again for the heads up

      Basically the user selects a driver that he wants to install, downloads the modded inf file from the website, replaces the inf from the driver package with the modded one and starts the installation of the driver.
