    Hello

    hope someone can help me:

    i`ve a Aspire 9920G with a 8600M GT (not working) and find this forum.

    I have the chance to get spare parts from an Aspire 6930G (9600M GT)
    Flashing would not be the problem, but is the the Nvidia driver on windows compatible? (without black/bluescreen)?

    (i am a little bit scared of having same problems of Yannickvl)

    Greetings from Berlin, Germany

    I had a faulty video card previously.

    Meanwhile I have now a working card (C version, not the A version with the same heat problems as the 8600 cards) and the Windows drivers works perfect!

    On the debian family of linux (ubuntu, Mint, ...) I can't find working drivers yet. If you find a solution, let me know :)

    Success!

    If you have problems finding linux drivers, just google for linux forums ;-)

    it's the number on the chip (G96-630-A1 or G96-630-C1). Please be aware is it very hard to find a C1 version with DDR3 memory.

    It's not the problem for finding the linux drivers. It is more the problem that the linux drivers ignore the output setting of the bios. So I have no screen on my internal laptop window. (problem is described in the previous posts, but never solved :) )

    I have changed the VGA card GeForce 9500M GS with the new GeForce GT 240 M on my aspire 8920 G. The new VGA card recognises as it as standard graphic adapter and it doesn`t want to install the drivers from Nvidia.How do I change vibos on the VGA card?Also I need to mention that I use Windows 7 64bit. The version of the bios is 1.16.
