sooo...bought what was called a "gaming laptop" (yes, yes, I know, but I'm stupid that way) and the seriously old driver from 2007 that is with it, cant be used any more, at least for Conan it seems!

Asus DOENST have any drivers, and Nvidia says that its the hardware manufacturer that has to supply it...

seems I'm kind stuck here. anyone have any experiences with this?

Hmm... I'm almost positive there are newer drivers than from 2007 because I've received a few 'video adapter updates' on my Macbook, which has that same card.  For Windows though, drivers should be drivers shouldn't be manufacturer specific.

A quick google shows this link... might be worth experimenting:

Based on the ATI site I used to use for my laptop (as until recently, ATI's standard driver package did not support laptop chipsets, even though there were plenty of sites that offered it anyway), what you download is a set of drivers, just like what you'd grab from ATI/Nvidia themselves.

So in short, blow away the old drivers, reboot, and install them (after making sure that Windows doesn't try to reinstall the drivers itself). Odds are you can install the drivers without cleaning up the old ones, but I wouldn't recommend it.
