    Drivers nVidia GeForce 8600 GS (for Vista)

    hello ...

    I just bought a new machine, and I want to update the drivers for my graphic card. It is an nVidia GeForce 8600M GS, which runs on Vista course ...

    I looked at several sites (also one of nVidia) to find the drivers, but I never the exact name of my GC.

    On the site after nVidia example I find drivers for the GeForce 8600 GT and GTS, but not GS. And then we must also choose between drivers for Vista-32-bit and 64-bit Vista, which I know how (my processor is an AMD Turion 64 X2, I do not know if that means my Vista is a 64-bit ...)

    So if someone could tell me where to search these drivers, thank you in advance

    Hi Friend

    Small tip, you download the latest driver Nvidia ____ .

    From uninstall your old driver (because it never does a driver over another)

    in the installation folder, look for a file called nv_disp.inf you open and you want the following lines:

    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0191.1%% = nv_NV3x, PCI \ Ven_10de & DEV_0191
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0193.1%% = nv_NV3x, PCI \ Ven_10de & DEV_0193
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0194.1%% = nv_NV3x, PCI \ Ven_10de & DEV_0194
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0400.1%% = nv_NV3x, PCI \ Ven_10de & DEV_0400
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0402.1%% = nv_NV3x, PCI \ Ven_10de & DEV_0402
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0421.1%% = nv_NV3x, PCI \ Ven_10de & DEV_0421
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0422.1%% = nv_NV3x, PCI \ Ven_10de & DEV_0422
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0423.1%% = nv_NV3x, PCI \ Ven_10de & DEV_0423

    And just below adds the following:
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0425.1%% = nv_NV3x, PCI \ Ven_10de & DEV_0425

    Then look for the following sequence of lines
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0191.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0193.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0194.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0400.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0402.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0421.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0422.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0423.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8300 GS"
    And add just below the following:
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0425.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GS"

    Then you save the file, you farm and you start the installation ... that you change the driver of Office which supplied with your laptop.

    thank you for the trick it worked.

    But unfortunately, the same manual did not work under Windows XP. I just bought a new HP Pavilion dv9533ef and I wanted to configure a dual-boot vista XP. Under XP, I managed to find all my device drivers except the driver of this famous nVidia GeForce 8600M GS.

    Is there any solution?
