    I will keep you updated maybe clean up the inf file i use now and then you can have a look to see if you find anything "messy". Yet again I can confirm that they work like a charm, but of course ideally they should be clean too.
    Glad to help.

    For all:
    I just tried 263.15 with Intel 2266 and it's working well in my VPCZ1
    I am uploading Nvidia 263.15 - Intel 2266 for VPCZ1 in 2 parts this may take 5 - 6 hours. I will pass it for testers first, if no complain i pass it for public.

    This driver is only for Sony Vaio vpc-z1.
    Means the driver will not work for vostro 3700 without modification, I don't know about dell 2711. But definitely not for it.

    I think there is a little missunderstanding I have a Vaio VPCZ11 with a dell 2711 monitor on the end which is driving me crazy, because the vaio didn't really accept the 2560x1440 resolution via DVI.

    Will be out for public next week(after tested without error).
    Wouldn't mind testing it either. I have noticed some problems with prior drivers (263.09 nvidia) when docking the z in stamina mode on z dock. The laptop screen starts flickering like crazy as the laptop tries to change to DVI out. I'll message you my email.

    Thanks !

    btw, do you have nsight running with 263?
    Just checked today (only had nSight 1.51 and 1.5 DL was broken few days ago): parallel nsight works fine with 1.5 and NV 263.00 + Intel 2202.

    Also, today I tried to make an updated hybrid driver with 267.05 but unfortunately it didn't work (same issue, could switch one time from NV=>Intel, but impossible to go back).

    Has anyone successfully made a driver 264+ work? I am not sure weither it's simply not supported/tested anymore in new drivers (as optimus replaced it), or if it is a bug, or simply some registry values to tweak (might be hard to do until one manufacturer release 264+ packaged hybrid driver so we can check what is needed).

    Any idea?

    I am sorry, well I can't tell that you have enough experience since your post is not Ī50 and it's very dangerous to install hybrid graphic driver without experience, please wait until it is out.

    I still have 1 more registry tweak to try end of this week. Everyone is working hard to get this done, but it is still very impossible to upgrade intel to 2291.

    Don't worry about VGN Z, I got a e-mail from Nautis dated Feb 22, 2011.

Been working hard to get up enough money to replace the motherboard. I hope to have the motherboard ordered soon and be back up in a couple of weeks.
    I can try to take a look at your INF and files but I cant test without my notebook.
    Hopefully you can let the rest know.
