    Default NVidia Geforce 8600m GT Vista 32x Drivers! :(

    I know I am going to be reprimanded for creating a thread on this when there are stickies already about it, but I am having too much bother and stress about it that as a final resort I am having to create a new thread. I am sorry.

    I have the Vista 32x Home Premium version.

    I have tried so many different files and links but I just can't do it there's too much choice and I'm struggling so much - Yes I have also looked through stickies but it is just all too confusing for me

    I just wanna be able to play Bioshock; I read on another forum somewhere that someone experienced the same problem as me; a black screen - the problem was resolved by getting the latest Nvidia drivers...

    ...Please can someone get me DIRECT links to what I need to download and HOW to do it. I beg you please!

    Regards,

    Simon

    www.laptopvideo2go.com, go for the 169.04 drivers. Follow the directions, and don't forget the modded INF file.

    And it doesnt... - firstly what happened is that it says the drivers were up to date (how can they be if Bioshock does not work though) - also I uninstalled the drivers and was able to use the setup of that driver however which got things back to as they were but still it doesn't work - I am back to square one - What should I do?!

    Ok, let me see if I can help, this is the link to the 169.32 driver for vista 32: http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/...howtopic=17204

    This is the driver I use and is very good.

    These are the steps you have to follow:
    1) Download the driver and the Modded INF (both links are next to each other).
    2) Double click on the driver, that will extract it to a folder, so select the folder and extract. Then copy and replace the Modded INF file.
    3) Go to the Control Panel and uninstall Nvidia drivers. Restart.
    4) Install the new driver. Restart.

    Your problem may be that you did not unistalled your old driver first.

    I hope this can help.

    Ok my last guess, just install one of the latest stable drivers and make sure you have direct x 10 installed (v169.32 as said above will work)

    You can download direct x 10 here:
    http://www.gamesforwindows.com/en-US...DirectX10.aspx

    Go to the gamers page and click 'Download the latest DirectX'
