Is it possible to fool your machine and power dvd and arcsoft to believe your 180.70 non whql drivers are whql compliant?


i ask because the best drivers for my machine are not whql compliant rendering any bd/hd video player solution useless

So what???


Unless you made the mistake of choosing Vista64 for your OS?


You may not be able to make the drivers whql compliant, but you can and should use Vista32 which has no requirements for the drivers to be whql compliant.


PowerDVD and Arcsoft TMT have no requirement for the drivers to be whql compliant.

Both players refuse to play with any non-whql drivers and I have vista 32bit OS.


Both of the bd advisor applications inform me that my driver is too old and out of date. Keep in mind that these drivers are in fact much newer than the drivers suggested by the applications.

You need AnyDVD HD. I can run PDVD and TMT in Vista x32 and x64 with any non-WHQL Nvidia driver. I've just installed 185.20 beta on Vista x64 with AnyDVD HD and have no problems with those apps.

I've had no problems with non-WHQL drivers with AnyDVD HD on Vista x32 & x64 and every ATI/Nvidia discreet card I've used recently (ATI 2600xt and 3850, Nvidia 8600gt. 9800gtx and 9600gt).


What is your graphic card/adapter then?

You can install non WHQL cpomplient on Vista 64 by doing an F8 boot and selecting the option to install non complient drivers. This option has to be reselected each time, it does not stick.

Vista 32 Bit

Went to Nvidia web site and searched for a driver for your card / Vista x32 and got 179.28 Beta (December 18, 2008). OTH 180.48 WHQL is available for discreet Geforce cards.


Your problem is obviously driver related to the 8700m Notebook graphic adapter.

www.laptopvideo2go.com . the 180.70 driver is the best driver to date for the 8700m chipset. performance wise its unbeatable.

Yeah, but those are hacked drivers, with modified .inf to make them run on laptops with nvidia graphic adapters. So even if you get better game performance you might run into trouble - as you do now - with some other functions as those drivers are not fully compatible with your specific laptop graphic adapter.

No, it doesn't. I have used unsigned drivers with no problems on my Vista32 SP1 system for quite a while now.


At any rate this doesn't sound like a driver signing issue, just some wierdness with a laptop video chip set / driver interaction.


Good luck with the laptop, it's ususally a very non optimal solution for HD playback at higher resolutions.

I apologize then as I was given bad information a while back as I wanted to use a japanese unsigned driver for my xbox wireless receiver and had all sorts of issues with it because of the signing of it on x64. I was told that after sp1 that they put that in the 32 bit version also and believed it to be true
