    And you can get official drivers from Nvidia.com which are fully supported and do not have any issues. I've ran into a couple of problems using LV2G's drivers such as Brightness control, sleep issues, and random crashing.

    I have the unibody macbook pro and I haven't been able to install any of nvidia's latest notebook drivers. I've tried on xp pro 32 bit as well as vista x64 and still no dice.

    I keep get a message that my hardware is not supported.

    are the drivers on the first post the newest that will work?

    Unfortunately, they do NOT install on the new 9400-based Mac Mini. :(

    Cheers,

    In my XP 32bit boot camp, I got the same error as the guy above "hardware not supported" when I tried the 9400m driver from that nvidia page.

    try the customized DOX drivers on laptopvideo2go. i'm using one of his (not sure which version, im on my mac partition as i only use windows for games) but it does give a performance boost.

    be sure to wipe your drivers before installing that though.

    Check driver release dates. The nvidia 9400m drivers, at this time, seem to be older than release date for some of the new computers.

    So the best bet is to do the third party for now, and use the official one when it comes out.

    Considering that this is the Windows, Linux & Others on the Mac section of this forum, I would suggest that post was rather relevant. Also, did you not happen to see the date of the post you quoted?
