Went to http://www.geforce.com/drivers/beta-legacy, switched the driver type to GeForce 600M Series, switch card type to 670M and hit search.

Downloaded the 304.79 Verde drivers, double clicked the file right from the Firefox download manager and ran through all the prompts.

I think this beta driver boost Gtx670M a lot. I could play battlefield3 with high settings 38~80FPS. FIrst of all, I played NBA 2K12. When I jump ball this game, it dropped to 60FPS previously drivers. However, this beta driver didn't drop at all. It stays cool FPS.

I recommend to use this driver.

Just got my laptop about a couple of weeks ago. Cannot play Tribes Ascend or Super MNC. They just error out when launching. Will this fix those games?

Is the screen flicker still there, as I had to uninstall the 3D drivers in order to get it to stop.

Hello,

I was wondering how you performed the upgrade? Did you uninstall the old driver or just run the install for the new one directly and let it figure out everything and upgrade in place?

Thanks

Always wise to do uninstall before reinstall with video card drivers (beta or non beta).

Nvidia has uninstall as part of the setup program these days so it's way easier.

I'm just curious, is there any more feedback on this driver? Has anyone had to uninstall and go back or is this driver a home run?

Thanks

Does the nVIDIA uninstall really remove all the driver files and dlls and registry entries or must one use driver sweeper?

If you choose "Custom Install" and then check the "Clean Install" checkbox in the NVIDIA installer, it will do a good job of removing the current NVIDIA driver. However, other drivers, such as those in Antivirus programs can interfere with UNinstalls and installs of drivers, so I will always boot into Windows Safe Mode to disable the Antivirus and other 3rd party drivers for the best chance of installation success.

Driver has known issues with FFXI and FFXIV.

Haven't seen any other widespread problems in any other games.

This driver is running perfect for me so far.. Even on a future proof brand new titles that is still in the works such as planetside 2.. Been playing that with ultra settings with no issues

This works really well, good driver set.
just make sure you do a "clean install" on this for best results.
I"m getting very good fps on all my games.

I did a clean install and the thing still flickers when at 120htz and it just blue screen on me when i was playing "World Of Goo" which isn't very graphics intensive at all. the blue screen code had NV****.sys which means a video driver problem.

Question though, have anyone tried this on their G55VW ? I tried installing it and have been multiple problems from screen flickering, unable to run games and etc. Do share your experience

That's a shame you not getting good results
Me myself I'm getting 55 to 85 FPS in Battlefields 3. (average 65 FPS)
no overclocking BTW

you should try uninstall all drivers, then start over with a fresh install.
maybe that will work.

me game work well with the drivers, as they all run at 75FPS but the screen flickering is what gets annoying as it won't go away unless i Uninstall the 3D drivers and run the screen 60mhz when the default is 120mhz, so till they fix this issue I'll be playing most of my games o me desktop.

PS: I already did a clean install of the drivers by clicking the clean install box in the drivers install screen, I would like to know if any one has a previous driver version the is lower than the 196.42 (or whatever it was) that came installed on the laptop.
that way if the drivers work and there is now screen flicker I will be happy to run with older drivers till they fix the problem.

hi im new here...

i just gotta put my review of this driver....

before i installed this new driver, i only got around 29-31 fps on some kinda medium settings on Anno 2070
after, i got around 36-39 fps, with same settings...

anyway my g75 is ds71... gtx 660m
and btw, i did a clean install, by doing exactly what "dstrakele" did , that he/she explained on post #32.
