    Do you need to do a clean install or can you install over the given Sager drivers?

    don't use these, you have now nvidia 266.35 (in beta but it is safe)
    that aren't tweaked so it is better

    you go to nvidia website, the download drivers, then beta and archived
    then you select your system and graphic card (gt 425M)

    (http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us)

    you press the button and you ll have it in the list

    Hello everyone.
    I finally got my Sager NP5135, and I have some questions.

    I have the Momentus XT hybrid SSD (model ST95005620AS), and I noticed that I have the SD23 firmware. I tried upgrading to SD24, but when the laptop reboots, I get the Seagate update tool, it tells me not to interrupt the process, then it detects my drive (writes its model and serial number on the screen) then nothing happens. I waited 10 minutes, rebooted, and the drive worked fine, but I still had the SD23 firmware. I tried doing this two times with the same result. Any suggestions?

    Another question is this: when I am running on battery, Windows 7 displays the remaining battery in percentage, not in hours (I get "88% remaining" instead of "2H30m remaining"). Is this the same for you? I came across a thread that discusses the same thing, but somebody replied that is does show the remaining time (Sager NP5135 - XOTICPC Forums). I mention that I installed all the drivers from the DVD I got with my laptop.

    I have a question, my optical drive doesn't recognize discs, it's on and the light works, and it opens but no metter what disc i insert it doesn't recognize it, happend to anyone? it did work when i got the laptop, i used it to install all the drivers...

    it's the same with all 5125/5135 owners, i have no idea why that is, i saw on many other laptop that it displays the remaining time, but for us it doesn't i asked sager about it and they said "they never heard of a computer displaying the time left"

    either way there is a very nice proggy called BatteryBar, try it, it's free and it shows the time very accurately, also display an assumed consumption in Watts.

    when you select the drivers for laptop (Verde) they have Optimus inside, and Optimus is installed when the hardware is found, so they are special drivers for Optimus

    o ok, thanks

    does anyone know if updating the intel drivers are worth while for the integrated graphics? windows update is offering my an intel update and im wondering if doing that update will break optimus or is it fine?
