Windows 7: What's everyone doing "driver" wise on new RTM install?

win 7
 
 

Since I install rtm 7600 on my XPS M1330 first my graphic card drivers not install by the OS which it use to do on beta or RC.
And worst my display is full of horinzontal lines that ramdomly appears.

If I force the latest nvidia drivers to install then my laptop is stuck on the boot logon.
If i use the repair tool then it restore it to the point without the nvidia drivers.

If go back to 7264 version everything is ok.

Seems that Retail version won't work on mine.

Are you aware of the faulty nVidia chips on the M1330? Those lines are the symptom and once it starts, it usually doesn't last long until complete failure. What's your warranty status? Dell will extend the warranty one year if you have an M1330 with a failed nVidia card.
