    Hey

    Like the title states, i have an alienware m17x laptop with two Nvidia Geforce GTX 260m's and an addition GTX 9400m G. Now I went and reinstalled vista 64-bit on there along with all my addition drivers. After looking under my Device Manager i realized that it only had one video card under Display Adapters and it was the 9400m.

    So i went to Nvidias site and downloaded there most recent driver for the 260m that was update on 4/18/11. After the install of the driver, i went back and still, nothing. I really want to be able to use my laptop at full power and get the graphics it should be getting, but i can't think of anything to do to fix this problem.

    Would really appreciate some help.

    Thank you in advance.

    Why did you reformat it? did you check their website for specific drivers?

    Long story to why i reformated it.. lol

    I checked their website with my service tag and it just gives me the normal Nvidia drivers for the 260m, except they are outdated.

    Think I'd phone them and see what they have to say.

    They wont help me unless I have a warranty..which I dont have lol. Already tried, plus they were a****les when i talked to them on the phone, so i figured to take matters into my own hands.
