    Again, has anyone updated the nvidia driver yet for the 230m? I have the 186.44 that came with it.

    I hope mine is perfect. This whole process has been such a rediculous cluster that I still actually haven't decided if I'll keep it. Before I made a decision to go with something else it shipped and I figured I might as well get my hands on it after all this time, and if I decide to return it, it'll just cost HP more for return shipping and selling it as a used product. I realize I'm being pretty negative about it, but one single problem - even a scratch on the bottom of the laptop - and it's going back.

    And of course the $50 coupon isn't really a $50 coupon...it's also kind of a rip-off considering it was given to us to make up for how they failed us.

    Yes, 187.66 (version 8.16.11.8766). So far, knock on wood, since I updated I haven't gotten any more of those messages where driver stopped responding but recovered.

    Nal, the more you fiddle with it, the more you'll like it!

    I installed the 195.62 driver and it's smooth as silk. Got it from the nvidia site.

    195.62 here as well. No issues at all.

    I would highly recommend staying on top of these drivers, but I would not go so far as to do beta updates.

    Well I ordered mine on Friday I didn't get the customizable one because for some reason you can't get the blu Ray drive anymore. So I ordered the quick ship 3180 model with the blu Ray drive. Hopefully this one won't have any of the problems my 1270 has. I'm still waiting to get that one back from hp. Quick question though. Does it still have the light up hp logo on the lid?...just checked fedex mine will be here Tuesday.

    I'm using the latest Synaptics Touchpad driver 14.0.19.0 and I'm not happy with the results - pointer jumping around, scrolling very fast in Firefox, etc. - despite trying different settings in the control panel.

    Does anyone recommend a better driver, or have settings that work very well?
