    Hi tempers,

    I use a sony vaio s (svs1511c5e), the drivers for the graphics card is a customized sony one which hasn't been updated for some time now.
    My question is can I change to the one on the nvidia site or will this cause problem or decrease my frames in my games?
    Thanks for you help,

    Benno

    Should be able to, it'll be treated as updating.

    thank you,

    Is there anything I lose by changing to the nvidia one instead of the sony one?

    the nvidia update will not be able to detect the hardware
    but you can indeed patch the nvidia updates to work
    you have to patch the files once there are extracted to "C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\306.97"

    here is the patcher

    From what I've heard, the main difference between nVidia drivers and Sony drivers are the optimisations made for your specific hardware configuration. Using nVidia drivers may introduce some instability as a result however, since laptop manufacturers rarely update their drivers, it should also bring other improvements or performance enhancements.
