    applemaca, yes. Download and run this. Put first attached file to:
    C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\341.44\Win8_WinVista_Win7_64\International
    Remove .txt prefix from second attached file, and put it to:
    C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\341.44\Win8_WinVista_Win7_64\International\Display.Driver
    After you're done, run:
    C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\341.44\Win8_WinVista_Win7_64\International\setup.exe
    Should work. =)

    Success!!! Fantastic work Starlight5. I really am so grateful to you for taking time to resurrect this old beast. I'd forgotten just how crisp and clear this combination is.
    Once again I thank you very, very much my friend.

    Hi everybody, I am looking for a good MXM II vga to update my 7720G and I found two interesting options: GT 240m or GTX 260m from Asus/Alienware. Are they compatible with my laptop or I should take a 9600m GT? Thanks in advance

    AyrtonThames, GT240M is compatible as long as it is MXM II and has vBIOS chip. GTX260m won't fit.

    Thanks for the advice! How can I see if a card has vBIOS chip? This one would work? [​IMG]
    Moreover, is the 240m better than the 9600m?

    AyrtonThames, GT240M is the best you can put, and MUCH better than 9600M GT - not only does it run faster, but also cooler. To be perfectly honest, I am not sure how BIOS chip should look - got my GT240M from eBay where it was advertised as compatible with multiple Acer models including 5930G. Recently sold it to a guy with 7720G, by the way.

    Well, besides the screen mod (because my 7720 only has the on board video), I have my 7720 running like a champ. Quick question. I have win10 loaded on it and I cannot get touchpad scrolling to work. Any ideas where to find a driver that can get me scrolling back? I love w10 but I have not used my 7720 much because of the scrolling issue. I have w10 on my 4810 timeline as well. Works great.

    Got to pick up new batteries for both as well. What is the largest capacity battery for the 7720?

    I had a similar problem and found a driver that worked for me - see here.
