    What i meant was to use the CS5 32 bit instead of 64 bit. The default is 64 bit.

    aH! :) Ok, will do. I'll only be able to later today/tonight. Working on the E6500 right now and won't be able to go to turn the 8740w on until later.

    Hey m8o,

    Have you received your brain cell yet? I'm looking at either the brain cell, the cache or a waterfield sleeve.

    Nope, hasn't been shipped (seems to be still back-ordered) I've been meaning to e-mail them the last week. I'll do that now.

    Looks like BIOS F.08 is out. Nothing stated other than support for nvidia Quadro 5000.

    Would be nice to see how the new Nvidia card performs.
    Too bad it's not compatible with DC2 and also very expensive :(

    I find the 32-bit binary is behaving the same as the 64-bit binary.

    Oh, I was about to click the link to the drivers! What happened?

    Installed the latest bios with no problems. I also updated the video bios (Included in the update). I also found out that it's possible to install the latest Quadro drivers from the nVidia site. It use to be that you could only use the HP video drivers.

    I need to find a way to cool my HP Elitebook 8740w while it is docked in the HP 230w VB043AA docking station. Can anybody out there tell me how this can be done? Are there products available to attach to the station while in the dock? Please help. Thanks,:confused:
