Dell nVidia Drivers & Second Life 1.20

For those of you that are locked in on your Dell XPS M1730 graphics drivers and find that Second Life 1.20.15 (92456) is suffering from frame rate freezing, you may like to try the latest drivers on the NVIDIA website as it seems to have solved my issue.

Previously these drivers where incompatible with this notebook, but it seems NVIDIA are supporting it directly now rather than Dell, who have not updated the graphics drivers in months.

* WHQL-certified driver for the following notebooks (These manufacturers have approved NVIDIA to provide this driver update for their notebooks):
o Alienware Area-51 m9750 (GeForce 8700M SLI)
o Alienware Area-51 m9750 (GeForce Go 7950GTX SLI)
