Gateway FX laptop Series Thread *mods and upgrades* - Page 105

post #1041 of 2327
Is anyone else having the best luck with the older drivers on the Gateway site? I am getting over 7600 points on 3DMark06 with those, but only 7000 with either the newest ones or the modded ones that people posted here.

They should fit, yes. As for the pin-outs I have not a clue. I would assume there is some kind of standard. If not, google may have something.

sorry for all the posts, is there a way to make the laptop not turn off/sleep when you leave it for a period of time, i want to download torrents when im sleeping but the laptop always turns off/sleeps when i leave it for more than 30 mins. i don't like this because i don't download torrents when im playing games as it cuts into my bandwidth.

hell thats MUCH better than my p7805u scored. I got an 8436 using 2xAA and 1280x768 with nVidias offcial drivers 7.15.11.7948 , going to 1440x900 and 4xAA took me down to the 6000's with factory fresh settings

I would try nVidia's drivers, although you should check to see which version they are in(the gateway site) im sure nVidia has the most up to date drivers.

*EDIT* It appears that the version numbering from Gateway and nVidia differ, but from what i can assume, nVidia has the most recent verion, as the gateway site lists the nvidia drivers as 176.15, and nvidia shows a release date of Feb 11, 2009 as the release date for their drivers
