    I read everywhere that people have been able to upgrade the stock video drivers that apple include with Bootcamp (Version 306).

    I have been looking for a way to upgrade them to beta version 310.77 or higher but so far, no luck. Could someone please tell me how to do it? Where do I download them from and so forth?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Huh. I downloaded drivers from the nvidia website, but the ones I downloaded apparently for their desktop chips gimme a "cant find compatible hardware " message whenever i try to install them. If i try and look for laptop beta drivers, all i get is an automated scanning tool on their website that wont gimme an option for downloading beta drivers.

    I am sure given the responses that i am missing something.

    For future reference, you want to use the:

    Beta/Legacy Driver Search

    and select

    Geforce 600M Series (Notebook)

    Geforce GTX680M

    (Operating System)

    The filename of what you download should have either Notebook or Desktop in the name, so you'll know you got the right one.
