Re: Vista drivers for Nvidia Geforce 2 Go graphics card
Now that you mention it, I had heard of that site before. I'm glad you came
along. I'm going to do a little look-see at that site this evening to see
what I can learn. I'm particularly interested in seeing if the people there
have insight into any special modifications (if any) done by the notebook
manufacturers to the nVidia video subsystems they sell.
Thanks. I'm sure I'll find the site to be useful, and here's hoping that
Daniel finds something there he can use.
