So I purchased a m17x laptop about a month ago. I am a gamer so I figured this would be a decent gaming laptop, not the best, but decent. However on all of my games I am getting horrible frame rate relative to what I have been to told what I should be getting with this card. I just started playing diablo 3 and it will not even play the opening video. Meanwhile, earlier before I got into the game, the D3 launcher shouted at me and said my graphics card was outdated. I went to dell for the latest drivers, installed them. Still does not do anything. I even went to manager and scanned for drivers but it says it has the latest ones. I notice that my desktop is fuzzy and so are my games. I know it is not on my intel graphics card because if I use the switch hotkey, its even worse.
So I really think it is the driver. I was wondering if anyone can specifically give me the latest version of driver to this card and where to find it. The version I have currently according to DXDIAG is 8.851.2.0.
I have the same laptop and an avid gamer. Are you using the 1920 x 1080 display?
I get great frame rates and have the same driver version. How about your video card bios, mine is version 113-B96117-101
You can get that info using Alien Autopsy, System Information, Multimedia.
I run SWTOR with the settings maxed without a glitch, will try D3 after bugs worked out.
Maybe you got a bad card and should get tech svs on it..
