It keeps telling my that I need to update my graphics drives, Ive gone to Nvidia, verified my drivers were current, then reinstalled to be absolutely 100% sure.

I have a Geforce 9800M GT.

now theres a newer version for 9800 GT, but not the mobile version. Does STO think I have normal one? O_O

I'm getting the same message about my Nvidia 8 Series graphics card for my laptop. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, done manual and automatic update searches from Windows, and the product websites.

trolling? You need to learn definitions. I asked a legit question because it keeps telling me this, and I want to know if 1) im missing drivers somewhere. or 2) the 9800GT ones will work with my mobile.

YOU are trolling.

You are trolling. The guy is posting about a legitimate issue that's come up. By calling him a troll for it you are, in fact, just trolling for responses.

Technically you are trolling as there is/was already a thread pertaining to this very subject. Why start a whole new thread with a sensationalist title?

Anyways, I would recommend uninstalling the driver completely from add/remove software in the control panel. You can then restart and resinstall the driver from scratch; you may need to go as far as downloading DriverCleaner to make sure all of the "old" driver is out of your system.

As tedgp123 mentioned, this error may have just been a bug. (I've not patched this morning and do not know - I got rid of the message on my machine by uninstalling the old driver and then installing the new driver.)

Hey OP,
I had the same issues... went and got the drivers from nvidia and updated but still the same message.
Then i went into my control panel, went to device manager and updated the driver that way and voila, no more message.
Maybe that will help.
And you're not a troll... it was a legitimate question and I can give someone the benefit of the doubt that they didn't see the other post about the issue.
Other posters who weren't helpful but just began name-calling- ignore them, the forums are full of 'em for every game.

There have been a large number of reported performance problems (especially in outdoor areas) with our engine and the NVIDIA drivers starting with the 191.xx version of drivers, and these were resolved in the 196.21 driver release, which we highly recommend using. As some of you may have noticed, this driver is not yet released for the mobile NVIDIA chipsets, so our client confusingly asks you to upgrade when the drivers may not be available for your card. The majority of the performance issues with these drivers were reported on desktop boards, so it's possible that the mobile drivers did not contain the same bug, so it should be safe to ignore this message for now. We will likely update the code to not complain about these specific driver versions on mobile cards to prevent this confusion.
