    Help needed,

    I have attempted to use several nvidia driver versions and the dell
    nvidoa driver to no avail. I get poor Direct X and Open GL performance.
    I have tried playing games and running screen savers only to have my
    laptop go into overdrive like the GPU is not handeling any of the work.

    10 FPS in doom 3 @ 640x480 low everything
    30 FPS in Ride of Nations @ 1600x1200 high everything

    I would love to run other tests, but I don't have any other games. I am
    downloading the SiSoft sandra and 3dMark now to test with and I will
    post those numbers when I have them.

    specs for reference.
    2Ghz Pentuim M
    1024mb RAM
    60Gb 7200 RPM drive
    128Mb FeForce Go5650
    WUXGA screen (1920x1200)
    802.11 a/b/g

    Thanks all,

    To run doom at high speed you need a high end video card like a nvidia 6800
    to get the best performance. It is a very demanding game.

    I understand this. But isn't a 128MB GeForce Go5650 at least capable of
    running more than 10 FPS at the lowest settings (on a 2Ghz machine P/M
    machine). Seems to me like this is a driver issue and I would like to
    know if anyone knows which version of nvidias driver acheives highest

    and please, no one say "the newest one" because thats not always true.
