I'm still confused about the locking and unlocking and what drivers will work for SLi.
Am I stuck using AW's drivers or can I use laptopvideo2go's drivers and modded INF's to utilize SLi?
Sorry if that doesn't make sense...
The m9700 accepts the laptopvideo2go.com drivers as long as you use the modified INF file. At least it does for Windows XP.
Only issue I've had is nTune doesn't work with the m9700 and those drivers, as the m9700 uses a combination of desktop chips, and mobile parts. Just means you can't overclock with nTune or use it for temperature monitoring. The drivers work great for everything else.
The m9750 uses a different chipset due to the C2D processor, so there are some hoops you have to jump through to get the drivers to work, but for the m9700 it's pretty straight forward. DL the driver and modified INF. Unzip the driver, then insert the modified INF into the driver folder and install. Make sure the driver installs for both your vid cards, enable SLI and you're good to go.
