Gateway FX laptop Series Thread *mods and upgrades* - Page 54

post #531 of 2327
I hear ya. My store has like 5-6 counter ops, and like 5 or so techs. One of the full time techs just left, and most of the other techs only work occasionally. I work like 40 hours a week, so other than myself, only the DCI really works 40 hours a week as a tech. It sucks though, because he is changing the way we do things around the precinct, with techs manning the counter and checking in/checking out computers as well as doing the repairs. Doesnt work so well though, because we dont have the proper coverage to do so, so not many repairs get done during the day. I am usually pretty good with getting 5-10 machines done when I open at 7am though, when no one can bother me

But yea, I dont really care about having to work the counter because I'll be back to college in Eau Claire in mid august (Im a transfer from the Eau Claire store temporarily to the Fox Point [Milwaukee] store), and when I go back, I'll only be working like 10 hours a week, because Im going to be an RA in the dorms...so ya

Anywho, gonna pick up the P-6860FX tomorrow. Its on sale for $1099 Only thing I dont like about it is that the screen is huge, and I would like a little easier portability in a laptop. But w/e as long as I can get a decent case for it.

So Im a new owner of a beautiful P-6860FX. Im unsure how to acquire the latest drivers other than the manufacturer website, but would like to use either the 175.16 or 175.19 drivers, so if anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be wonderful. (nVidia only has drivers for 8700m listed...who knows why that is).

oops! Just got to this. Head on over to http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/...p?showforum=88 and snag the set of drivers and modded .inf you want to use. You can use any desktop driver that way, just make sure you overwrite the inf in the package with the modded one and your all set to install.

hows it working?
post #538 of 2327
Well 2 weeks ago I picked up my P-6831 fx laptop from a guy I found on Ebay for $820. He said he got it from the Best Buy auction. Its perfect, all manuals, box everything was there. I am going to thumb through all 50+ pages of this post and see what you guys think.
I called Gateway to register it and start my 1 year warranty. Anyone else upgrade the warranty with gateway. I can do that anytime in the next 12 months.
It had a ship date on the box of February 2008.

Im going to try the 175.16 modded by a member back a few pages.
whats the best way to overclock the GPU and will it keep settings after a reboot?

Give rivatuner a try, it can save settings as long as the program runs at boot I believe. ATI tool should work as well if you don't like rivatuner.
