Default Laptop Video/Performance Problems.

I have a Gateway Nx860x.

My video card is the Geforce 7600 Go, which is **** near impossible to find good updated drivers for. All the drivers I use have some sort of flaw in them and never last long.

Right now I am using the 177.89's I think. I have tried so many its hard to remember.

These are working the best however my Laptop runs alot hotter and at some point even when my extra fans have completely cooled it, it begins to slow down. Everything lags from games to browsers and its just not running how it should be. Is there any way to either find some decent drivers or somehow stop the performance issues?

Should I update my bios?

Im stuck.
