    hi, i have a p 6860 fx, and lately i have upgraded to the driver 275.33 last week, but on this week i got a lot of overheating issues on my gpu, my lap constantly shut down while i play wow, i have openened the lap and cleaned it from all the dust but the problem persist, it might be the driver or the fans, can u recommend me a working driver for my 880mm gts on win vista 32 bits?

    I don't know the temps as I don't have the temp monitoring software installed. However, I did not notice any difference in fan noise (very quiet) or perceived heat on my palms. But it did allow the sleep function to work properly. I was having trouble resuming after sleep using the stock driver and win 7. This driver seemed to fix it. Not sure what the GPU driver has to do with the sleep function of this laptop but I am happy now.

    Thank you! I believe a new driver came out on Leap Day.

    This thread has been very useful to me over the years (yikes!)

    What's the difference between doing this process with the uninstalling rather than just installing the updated driver without doing all that?

    If you are not having any problems then leave well enough alone. Don't fix it if it isn't broken. Some GPU driver updates can cause problems as shown in this thread.
