T61p nvidia driver

2009-10-24, 1:13 AM

So I upgraded to windows 7 and now i have to find the driver for my video card.  

 

I have an Nvidea Quadro 570m card and i went on nvidea's website but none of them were listed and also I need this because I run a dual screen on my laptop.

The driver should be in the lenovo > support > downloads and drivers (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67853.html). I got windows 7 the day it came out since I was a student and they hadn't updated their drivers but it should be there.

Any idea how to find the Windows 7 64-Bit version?

 

No matter what I look up, there are only drivers for Windows 7 (32-Bit).

It seems to be on the T61p page: Drivers and software - ThinkPad T61, T61p right here: NVIDIA Display Driver (NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M / Quadro FX 570M) driver for Windows 7 (64-bit) - ThinkPad R61, R61i, T61, T61p

As I stated in this thread

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T61-and-prior-T-series-ThinkPad/Starcraft-2-on-win7-64-t61p/m-p/315374/highlight/true#M52946

I've been very pleased with official nVidia drivers lately (Since 258 series). I had great experience with the 260.99 WHQL and unless you depend on the Lenovo's official drivers with CAD support, I'd suggest using the official nVidia drivers that will give you a tad better performance in games etc.
