  1. Hey all, just purchased: HP Pavilion dv9548ca Notebook PC
    Comes with a NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS
    I'm wondering if its a good idea to update the control panel from nvidia.com
    or from hp.com?
    I've always had ATI but..should I get Nvidia's Forceware for this?
    I read somewhere some forceware allows you to read the temperature's for the GPU...
    I was playing Quake IV yesterday and the side of the laptop got pretty hot.. not enough to burn my hand but hot enough to go damn!
    Can't really add a cooling fan to a laptop can I (for the graphics card)
    Btw my comp is build with Windows Vista Ultimate x64


    Specs:
    Processor Type Intel Core 2 Duo T5450
    Screen Size 17.0 in
    RAM (Preloaded / Maximum) 2048MB DDR2
    Hard Drive 200GB SATA 5400RPM
    Optical Drives 8X Super Multi LightScribe DL DVD+/-R/RW
    Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS
    Processor Speed 1.66GHz
