    Can somebody with Vista try something for me pls?
    Go into the Manage Custom Resolutions in the Nvidia Control Panel, and try creating a custom one, and tick the "allow modes not displayed by windoze" and see if it stays that way.And name the driver you're using if it works.

    I don't get it, neither .75 nor .80 allow me to set custom resolutions.
    I'll have to give .70 a try now.
    Thanks.

    ok, here is your fix for that stupid clock speed dropping

    1: open regedit
    2: go down to key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\ this is mine and yours is a different number - {DEB039CC-B704-4F53-B43E-9DD4432FA2E9}

    go to the first 0001 or 0000 file folder that shows all your vga settings. it will be a long list.

    3: scroll all the way down to the bottom where it says: RMPowerSupplyCapacity=3
    meaning=performance level 3 when no ac adapter is detected.

    change the 3 to 0
    meaning: no performance level change detected due to no ac adapter connected.

    4: reboot computer. you should be able to reboot on battery and start a game and the clocks should stay in the high 3d range. stop the game and it should drop back down (5 to 20 seconds after that)

    this should work with all the newer drivers which are down clocking.

    hope this helps if you haven't already done it.


    edit: your card will down clock like it should, but once you draw on the gpu. the card will clock itself back to your max clocks and stay there till your done. once the game or gpu app is shut down, the clocks will drop to help cool the gpu down quicker.

    I still don't get it, it won't stay ticked for me, no matter what driver I tried.
    Hopefully somebody will be able to help me on this, it's driving me nuts.
