Here's my GEEK-steer ...

I'm sincerely curious where you heard that. Your post got my attention because I just installed that exact device in a client's PC very recently, so I was compelled to check it out myself. However, after a bit of research, my assessment is: Me thinks the basis of such accusations is based more in jealousy and brand loyalty than in fact. Why?

INDICATOR ONE:

In February 2008, the Geforce 9600 GT was released. That's almost a year out in the wild. Plenty enough time for any/all significant problems to aggregate in the web tech-forum world. Yet I don't see any noteworthy level of problem reports. In fact, the highest ranked Google item http://forums.nvidia.com/lofiversion/index.php?t79391.html associated with that device (dated Oct 12 2008) has a user encountering VERY GENERIC ERRORS, yet not one other user appears to have same problem, and his post is hitherto un-answered. Not exactly the flurry of activity you'd expect to see with a device with a "history of problems".

INDICATOR TWO:

Then I read this interesting reference http://www.product-reviews.net/2008/10/15/nvidia-geforce-9600m-gt-specs/ and it became clearer (if not conclusive):

[QUOTE] We learned yesterday that the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics will be used in the new Apple MacBook. So how come Apple decided to DO AWAY WITH INTEL AND CHOOSE NVIDA INSTEAD (my emphasis). There are a number of reasons for this, but the main reason is the performance. [END QUOTE]

That factiod represents a significant business change involving equally significant financial interests, egos, and brand-loyalists. A word to the wise is sufficient.

For what it's worth, I would have no problem buying, using, installing, or recommending this particular device. Hope this helps. Please post back and let me know what you think (especially if you have something I need to know that I'm unaware of).

Hello here is the SONY homepage:

http://www.sony-asia.com/support/download/359171/product/vpccw16fa

The newest nvidia driver, can be downloaded here:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook-win8-win7-winvista-64bit-314.07-whql-driver.html

Or use Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products, by installing a small bit of software.

My advice is to uninstall ALL nvidia software, before you install the new.

Hope this will help you

Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT video card. internal error


Yikes!!! Never buy an All-In-One version of anything. One thing breaks on them and you're without everything.

Try downloading and reinstalling the Nvidia Drivers.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "NvidiaSupport" or "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Video drivers.
