Knowing issues:

1. Hips of NVidia drivers having issues with brightness or not recognising all graphic cards.

I found that only above mention version working with this laptop / graphic card. I had tried few versions from 178 to 306.97, regular, with WHQL and with moded inf and neither worked.

With generic basic adapter brightness and turning off screen by system working flawless, but you have just basic 2D functions. When you install version 257.41 driver working properly, you get all options and brightness working. However, diming and turning off screen by system not working.

Simple fix is to disable 'Generic PnP Monitor' in Device Manager. With this fix you are getting automatic turning off monitor by system, but losing brightness adjustment option.

My preferred option is with disabled 'Generic PnP Monitor'. Before disabling I had setup brightness for all power options to suit my needs and then I disabled 'Generic PnP Monitor'.

If I need to change brightness it is enough to enable 'Generic PnP Monitor' in Device Manager.

2. Turbo button and all function keys working correctly with and without installed SCM, except for brightness if you have disabled 'Generic PnP Monitor'.

3. If you decide not to install SCM as I, than you can use application 'KeyTweak' to assign any action to 'P1' button.

Thanks a lot for this topic.

Graphic card driver Works unproblematic for this driver.

Other graphic card drivers do not work properly.
