FOr anyone not familiar, Omega drivers are hacked drivers that allow you to use the latest Radeon/Nvidia drivers on your laptop, without having to wait for your slow-ass OEM to put out special drivers just for your laptop. I found this nifty utility after having some problems with my OEM laptop gpu drivers which was preventing me from running some games, and causing anomalies in others, and I must say it at least so far it works VERY well, and my problems have cleared up. I've played with other Omega drivers before with mixed results, sometimes having to hack them myself so that they aren't trying to enable features the card doesn't support, which can cause wierdness. This is because a lot of the Omega drivers out there are "all-purpose", meaning they are one-size-fits-all, and not specifically set up for a particular card. This tool makes specific changes to the latest drivers downloaded from ATI based on the card you tell it you have, taking care of that business.
First, this tool only works with ATI drivers
, so Nvidia folks will have to look elsewhere.
All you have to do is download the latest catalyst drivers, unpack, open up the DHmodtool utility, point it at the drivers (if you unpacked them to a location other than the default), tell it what mobile GPU you have, and it makes the changes. Then you just uninstall your old drivers ( I recommend using the tool from ATI's site for this), reboot, install the new drivers, reboot, and your using the latest Catalyst drivers on your laptop. Easy-Peasy-Japanesey. Or in this case Canadian, eh?
