  • Can't update my 8800GTX Videocard

    Hi. I'm having problems updating my video card. i tried downloading from laptopdriver2go.com but when i installed it, it said it cannot find the correct hardware, thus the set up was exited. I also tried from NVIDIA website browsing the specs under >8xxxseries>8800GTX>512MB>Vista64 and i installed it, but the same error showed up. :x

    if anyone can help me, please help cuz i dont know what to do now

    visit http://www.sagernotebook.com and navigate your way to the support section and find the Sager 9262 section, use those drivers. You can play around with drivers from laptopvideo2go but in most cases they won't work if you've got 64-bit Vista. Part of what it means to have 64-bit architecture in Vista is enhanced system security. Even though you'll get a dialogue box asking whether you want to install an unsigned driver or not, even if you choose to allow it, Windows will not install it. For this reason, 64 bit drivers can be really difficult to find. The Soundblaster Live external card available through xotic (and soundblaster) WILL NOT work with 64-bit Vista. So... custom drivers beware!

      You probably downloaded the 8800 desktop driver and not the 8800M GTX.

          I am using the stock Sager 64-bit driver at the moment. The laptopvideo2go drivers don't have anything that Sager doesn't already offer. Until they put some working 64-bit drivers on laptopvideo2go, I will stick with Sager's. Maybe you were trying to install the 64-bit drivers that were the ones incompatable with the 8800M GTX. Try reading some other posts on what driver versions work for the 8800M GTX on previous threads.
