    I have an ACER H5360 projector. I forgot to mention it. 3D works over both HDMI and VGA ports.

    Hi,

    I have some problems with my VPCZ11 and my Dell 2711. The Dell have the resolution 2048x1152@VGA (works with Intel like a charm) and the 2560x1440@Dulalink DVI to use this. it is possible to integrate these two resolutions out oft the box in the nvidia drivers? Yes I can add custom resolutions but when I go to hibernate the DVI Port didn't work anymore :( Only thing that helps is a new installation of the drivers. So I hope if I can add these resolutions I did not have these Problems anymore...

    Hi All,

    I have the new Z13 series & when it switches from stamina to speed or vice versa, a messages appears requesting I click okay to make graphic changes (it complains about msnmsgr.exe & skype.exe etc)

    I know this has been asked about before & response is those apps hook to the graphics & hence message on screen & thefore closing these apps would remove the message.

    However, my question is - is there a REGisty change we can apply to force the graphics change, as it is annoying to have to keep clicking okay to continue after each grpahics switching ?

    Thanks,
    T

    2202 test canceled.
    i will be using 2266 since 2254 also didn't work.
    nvidia 267.xx is out, may want to try.

    267.05 runs just fine on my system, Again with BIOS hack and Intel gpu disabled.

    I actually thought about making a new thread for modded drivers for people with this setup (Intel gpu disabled) if people are interested?

    it is a good idea to make one,
    but you must warn people that modifying bios is very dangerous
    beside you need to learn how to modify new inf instead of using the old one, sometimes you even need to change the original code into something older or newer.

    edit:
    news - Intel 2291 is out.

    edit2:
    STRICTLY DO NOT TRY 2291! you will end up with BSOD including Safe Mode!
    29705 have the same problem with the previous 26666 the screen is blank even worse can't load nvidia driver at all.

    Hi, I have tried the 2266 in hybrid mode, and everything works out fine.
    I'm going to try out the 2291, and let all of youo know.

    Well technically you may be right, the inf should be written from scratch for every driver, but frankly I really don't think it matters THAT much. Hence all the drivers I have tweaked actually works... flawlessly which is all both I and people need.

    And no, I'm by no means encouraging people to hack their bios, but some people already have and I could give them the option to have constantly updated Nvidia drivers too.

    Anyway, I will look into it.

    DO NOT TRY 2291 YOU WILL END UP WITH BSOD WITH SAFE MODE ERROR

    Thanks a lot for the offer! Very nice of you.

    I will keep you updated maybe clean up the inf file i use now and then you can have a look to see if you find anything "messy". Yet again I can confirm that they work like a charm, but of course ideally they should be clean too.
