# 1 Laptop graphics

My laptop has the most up to date driver i can find for it, but i still get that warning when i start the game that i have to update my driver.

I have an HP HDX 16-1375DX premium notebook

Nvidia Geforce GT 130M


Anyone else have this issue, or can someone give me some advice? It seems to cause things in-game to not show up properly, especially in caves.

Then you probably don't have the most up-to-date drivers. I have a HP Pavilion dv5 with nVidia 9600 M GT and am running the latest drivers from nVidia themselves, which are always more up-to-date than the ones provided by HP. In my case the HP drivers would be around a year old.

Using drivers not provided by the laptop manufacturer is done at your own risk, though.

Supposedly the manufacturer's drivers are the only ones properly adjusted for the specific laptop.

Anyway, Cryptic has a beef with us laptop users, as it seems, so even having the most superduper new graphics drivers won't necessarily stop STO from displaying that message.

I play STO on a laptop. I check the Nvidia site nearly every day to make sure that I have the most up to date graphics drivers.

And still STO keeps telling me that my drivers aren't up to date.
