Might be better on older cards, there's hardly anything new on the 2xx drivers, for 400 series there's definitely difference, and has been since release.

hi all.... recently put Windows 7 on an old Toshiba s5200-701 Laptop I had... working fine... was able to install 3.6.3.9 driver for my Gforce 4 460GO card. Looks better than the standard Microsoft driver installed before. Can I install this driver for this card even though it is not officially supported? My daughter wants to play Sims Three and it won't work with this driver... thanks.

By the way upgraded the RAM on the Toshiba to 1 GB before installing 7.

Not likely. Unless something new has been put in the WHQL ones.

Hello Brink... thanks for answering...

My question is... even if my card is not listed as supported... can I install it anyway... I found a thread on how to force an install of the driver by editing the inf file. I'm just worried since the card is older... I might screw things up.

Hello Slancio, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It most likely would not install for you since it is not supported by the driver. I would recommend to only install the latest driver version that supports your card instead.
