Driver for GeForce 8600M GT (XP)

Recommended Posts

where can i find the drivers for GeForce 8600M GT, for XP? in the NVIDIA site, there is only driver for 8800M not for any others, 8600M GT? my Laptop comes with Vista and i have installed XP, so looking for a driver for it. i have used driver packs but in games, the graphics performance seems sloppy. in Command & Conquer 3 and Battlefield 2, the game defaults to Low graphics. and even if i increase the video config, it does not seem to look much better...

in my desktop with Geforce 7500LE or another old laptop with ATI Radeon X600 it looks much better. GeForce 8600M GT 512MB should be better?

the specs:

Intel C2D T9300 2.5GHz Penryn

4GB DDR2 667

320GB SATA

GeForce 8600M GT

in device manager, i can see that the video adapter is GeForce 8600 GT but the performance dont seem to be as expected... how can i verify this?

your card is supported by general forceware software..

this is a link to the latest drivers

http://downloads.guru3d.com/ForceWare-174.53-XP-(32-bit-)-download-1884.html

Please note: 8600 GT is a weak card ... it is good for moves & general use, but gaming it wont be great..

my budget had me buy one of these cards and as it was using (512mb)ddr2 i thought same as you regarding performance, so i returned it and paid the extra $40 for less ram (256mb) but of quality DDR3 and now i can game and the card aint half bad for what i need it for.

just check your card if its using ddr2 ram that will be why your card lacking perforance

but surely it will be better than a 7500LE or a X600? probably with DDR2 too. my laptop is 8600M GT with DDR2 ram. and i notice that in the (what do u call this...) the EA ad when 1st starting C&C3 i see banding in it... wonder if this means anything?

What are you talking about??? This card is not bad at all. I run all games on my Desktop very well, at max available resolution and with all details maxed. And everything goes smooth and with great picture quality.

Cheers ;)

Of course this is not safe.

If you like a safe solution: use graphic card drivers from Laptop manufacturer.

If Laptop manufacturer dosn't provide appropiate drivers, try a non safe solution.

Of course that's at your own risk.

Which nvidia driver version do you use currently? Try a newer one, but don't use the newest.

i am talking abt GeForce 8600M GT for a laptop. supposedly supported but gives me a BSOD so i think it does not work... its abt the nv4_disp or something like that... the BSOD

Which nvidia driver version do you use currently? Try a newer one, but don't use the newest.

i use 6.14.11.6921 (12/5/2007) according to device manager
