    hey,


    i got a lapotop with a geforce mx 440 go. I wanna use the laptop with my 32" lcd but I can't find a resolution that fits. Do you know any page with new driver for my card (nvidia driver doesn't work).

    mobile video cards are supported by the laptop manufacturers, so look on the Dell, HP, or whoever site for the latest drivers

    @Chris: The latest driver for my video card are from 2003....

    I already tried Power Strip out.

    I know that there is a site with manipulated driver for nvidia cards....but i can't find the website and even if i found it, I wouldn't know how to install them (was pretty complecated)...

    The problem with every (any?) driver I find is that it says it's not compatible to my video card. The website I was talking about offers manipulated setup ini files for drivers so you can install the latest driver to any video card...

    You need to install the driver for your 32" widescreen. You don't need to do anything to your video card.

    agreed.

    if in *nix, enable all instead of auto-config resolutions.

    My current video card driver doesn't allow the resolution I need for my LCD (1368x768 Pixel). So I need to install new driver. The problem is that there aren`t new drivers for my video card (The latest driver from Medion is from 2003 and NVIDIA driver doesn't work).

    I'm sure there was a site which offers manipulated ini files to install new driver on every video card.

    The resolutions are controlled by the monitor driver, not by the video card driver.

    Try reading next time.
