    I don't do much gaming on this but I hear the updated Forceware drivers are a bit of a godsend. Only I've tried downloading both the desktop 9400 and 9400M drivers and both said that my GPU was incompatible. I've read about a few users here using the latest drivers, how do I get to install them?

    Thanks all.

    I've never heard about the Forceware drivers, but I'm thinking those are for the GeForce 9600 GPU in the MacBook Pro. Correct me if I'm wrong, though. For the GeForce 9400M drivers, you can go right to Nvidia's own site.

    Already been there. The drivers for the 9400M throw up that incompatibility error. I've read that you need to mod the drivers somehow, yet I can't find anywhere with instructions.

    Edit: Nevermind, found a site containing the modded drivers :)

    Would be nice to share that site - since originally these drivers are meant from NVidia for the Vista OS.

    I can't remember the exact site but a friend told me to visit - this place for laptop drivers.
