    Modded drivers worked a charm...thxs. Just a quick question ..do i install with hybrid and onboard gfx on or off in bios. If off, what drivers do i install for the 9400m onboard? I have a M17x version 1 and 280 Sli discreet.

    dude, hope you can help. your modded drivers install but when i check Sli functioning with Sli indicators(nVidia) and with a temp tool i see that sli is not working even though it is on in nVidia control panel. I have tried a clean install, installed over old version, install with hybrid on and off in bios and even used official dell 257.38 drivers. None show Sli functioning. The only way to get Sli working and to see the nvidia Sli indicator at work and to see equal temps in both Gf cards is to go back to my initial restore point with 186.64 drivers???Any ideas. I have a M17xR1 with 280M's.Am i missing something in the install process?

    thanks

    I tried to find a 'clean' install option, but this is all I get when I launch the driver update.

    Click ok, it will extract. You are too hasty. Just carry on and you'll get to it :D

    I extract it to a folder on my desktop and it automatically goes to check system compatibilitythen gives me this error.. No matter where it extracts to it yields the same result..

    That depends on how many posts per page a user has set in his control panel.

    @Roman Legion: see my second reply in this thread.
