    Default Bioshock wont run on my new M1530..

    After i installed it it opens but only to a black screen. Seems like a driver problem, how do i check what the latest driver for the 8600M?

    Anyone have any advice?

    Check the Dell support site for drivers or try the driver from www.laptopvideo2go.com. They offer drivers suitable for all Nvidia cards laptop and desktop.

    Which OS are you running?
    Sometimes it helps to right click the shortcut and select 'Run as administrator' when using Vista.
    Also are you running the full game or the demo? Do you have the Bioshock patch installed?

    bah so it doesnt work with the update and with running it as admin.

    It says "program has encountered a problem and stopped working"

    Have you tried re-installing the game?
    So even with the latest drivers it wont work??

    In afraid, my friend, this is where I would usually stick the game up on eBay! lol

    What drivers are the current best for Bioshock?
    Also i guess the patch is from their site.... I'd been trying to play it via a steam demo.
