Re: NVIDIA GeForce FX GO 5700 and AERO
Hey Bill, tried your recommendation and still get the same message.. It's a
no go for me.. Toshiba Satellite P20. One thing I don't get from your reply
is you stated to get the .inf file from Version 96.33.. yet that driver won't
install either.. same problem? I would think 96.33 would install if the .inf
file has been patched? Any other thoughts?
