    nope you do it in the driver download folder. After you extract the new driver you put it in the folder of the downloaded folder for display driver

    ok guys, just to clarify as its easy when you know (but a nightmare when you dont) here is a list of step by step instructions.

    Download http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windo...ok-win7-winvista-64bit-international-beta.exe

    and http://forum.notebookreview.com/att...nvidia-v275-27-discussion-modded-inf-nvdm.zip (all credit to jetbo for the zip!)

    dont double click on the video driver exe, right click and select extract to a folder( i have winrar installed)

    navigate to the folder where you extracted the files to and then drill down 275.27-notebook-win7-winvista-64bit-international-beta\Display.Driver

    open the inf-nvdm.zip(that you downloaded before) and copy the .inf file contained in this zip over the one in the display.driver folder.

    Then go back to the top level of the extracted files and run the setup.exe, the driver should install then.

    Good luck. If you guys are still having problems let me know and i will put a zip containing the latest nvidia driver with the modified inf on my ftp, and then all you will have to do is to run the setup.exe

    Happy gaming!

    wow good results from the 3dmark 11 tests:

    using the original driver no OC. 1322
    Using the original driver with 700/1000 OC: 1540ish

    Upgraded to 275.27 driver:
    no OC: 1407
    with 700/100 OC: 1650

    That's a nice 7% increase.

    That was as easy as you can get. Love these forums. Thanks Sasquatch ( Did I misspell your name or did you ;} ) for the easy link to the files, although I did use the 275.33 drivers. Everything works great so far, the performance gain is very nice with the new drivers, and I don't seem to have any problems with optimus. I think my scores (my rig - 2720, 3gb 555, 8gb hyper x, momentus XT, 1600x900) compared to other people's scores proves once and for all that the performance gain by getting the 2720 over the 2630 and the 3GB over the 1.5GB video memory is negligible. If your not going to run multiple OS's (work related) at the same time and your not going to have to possibly run 3D video out like me (only instance where I could possibly see 3GB meaning anything for the video), the basic model is the way to go. Although I still prefer the 1600x900 screen, it's got the same gamut (45%, pretty bad actually), but it's got a better contrast ratio and is perfect for the screen size. I do recommend the seagate momentus XT (not a Dell option, I put it in myself), it loads windows very quickly as well as commonly used programs, believe the advertising this thing is a very cheap ($100 for 500gb w/4gb solid state cache) middle ground between hdd and ssd. The fan on this beautifully built baby is the only issue I have, would love to find out if a replacement can be put in that is not at the same noise level of a leaf blower (it is very quiet when on battery and not playing games).

    3DMARK11 (275.33 driver)- no o/c 1416 :( : oc (msi 695/1000) 1646:D
    PCMARK7 (275.33 driver)- no o/c 3453 :( : oc (same) 3651:) :)

    I was wondering, is this still relevant considering the time that's passed? I'm about to pick up witcher 2 and just wanted to double check! :)

    280.19 is the newest beta drivers, I had trouble trying to install them with the modified .inf though so I can't give you much input :(
