Re: Are there any GPU/CPU(temperature/memory) installed or compatible with Alienware M17x laptop?

Once again, thanks for the well thought out reply. My main issue with the driver is the one provided by Dell/Alienware is obnoixiously outdated compared to what is out on Nvidias website right now. The one Alienware remotely installed on my system last wee:

        Driver Name: nvd3dumx.dll,nvwgf2umx.dll,nvwgf2umx.dll,nvd3dum,nvwgf2um,nvwgf2um
Driver File Version: 8.15.0011.8664 (English)
     Driver Version:
        DDI Version: 10
       Driver Model: WDDM 1.1
  Driver Attributes: Final Retail
   Driver Date/Size: 8/6/2009 17:16:00, 9492480 bytes

While the driver(after searching Nvidia's website - shows that it is a laptop only driver) is



258.96 WHQL

Release Date:


Operating System:

Windows Vista, Windows 7


English (U.S.)

File Size:

113 MB


Which as you can tell by the date is really, really outdated. Which I think may be the root of a lot of my issues with current(recently released) games. I'm running in SLI and I think the outdated driver is causing a lot of issues with games since the latest drivers include SLI profiles in every update. 😞
