    Fucking BF3 drivers

    So, yea... guess I wont be playing BF3 any time soon.

    I only have my old gateway FX laptop with a 9800m GTS card, which only has drivers up to 280.xxxx and EA won't even let you start the game without 285.xxxx drivers or higher (which start with the 280m card).

    I had figured I could at least run the game on min graphics, what a gyp... unless I am missing something.
    Good lord are there no good games to play?

    Well, I am not sure if I am special, but I did not install the beta drivers initially and was still able to get into the game. Of course that error popped up saying that I needed to get the newer drivers, but the game still launched and I was able to play. This was on the 27th though so maybe they changed that so it didn't launch the game at all.

    I get that same error message that pops up but I can just hit ok and still play fine. I have an Nvidia GTX 570 coming on monday (running an ATI 5750 right now), we'll see if the drivers give me any issue.

    I actually have the GTX 570 and asked to update the drivers but I clicked ok just like kbot said and it ran fine. I guess it's something you bypass I just downloaded it yesterday.

    The beta drivers work great for BF3 but seem to be crashing other games like Civ5 and BFBC2. I had to remove 'em...running SLI GTX 570s.

    FYI, you can download hacked INF files for all recent nVidia drivers at this website: http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/

    Shit works good. My laptop is from some no name Taiwanese manufacturer so the driver support is non-existant. This allows me to run pretty much any release that I want.

    yeah rivers the rubber band lag is rampant throughout this game and almost unplayable on 1 map.
    The game doesnt like any kind of alt/tab for me it will freeze and nothing but a ctrl/alt/del will fix it and even that takes its sweet time.
