Since Dragon Age isn't so much of a fast-paced game with its real-time/turn-based hybrid feel, I can run it pretty high and on the ragged edge of playability on my laptop. I actually play with my laptop connected to my 52" Samsung HDTV at 1920x1080, everything maxed, and antialiasing at 2x. It generally plays pretty smoothly. These drivers are indeed very nice.
I think it might be wise to remove the 7150m card from the compatibility list. Including this .62 package, I haven't had one not BSOD me regardless of how "nice" I was installing it since the 180's came out.
On Windows 7 it does. I gave up trying to install new NVIDIA drivers on XP because all newer drivers, somewhere past 185 series I think, give me a BSOD on startup. I still have XP installed though. Do you know why?

My money is on the CUDA components they introed in the 18x drivers just hates the 7150m in XP. Nvidia now releases native laptop drivers from their website, but for the 7150m they're limited to the 177.something drivers.
I'm still getting the freeze problem we got with another driver on this driver, but other than that seems everything is fine. Gonna install some games to test on when I have some time.
Unfortunately when I got done with school work I messed up a registry defragmentation and destroyed the registry, had no more space to put the rest of my backups in so had to dish out for another external drive, now I'm back on so hopefully locking the clocks up I could stop the problem.
