Alienware M14x 555m w/ Nvidia 285.62

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The Alienware 555m only allowed drivers from dell unless you modified the inf file. I went to download 285.62 for BF3 and ran the install for the heck of it and it loaded?! Idk what changed... But now it allows me to directly update from Nvidia. Anyone with a mobile gpu who normally have to modify the inf to update their driver.. Go ahead and instal 285.86, maybe it'll work for you too?

There were some recent implementations made and some exceptions...Because of BF3's release, mobile platforms and custom cards were included...

I don't know if it will be a regular occurrence but, we hope it to be.
