Hey, i am running an alienware m15x with a 8800m-gtx video card and a Core2 duo xtreme x-9000. I have done everything I can to upgrade each driver (drivers off nvidia site, automatic download, as well as driver cd) for both, however my 3d mark 06 scores are pathetic:

3d marks 3533
sm 2.0- 1672
sm 3.0 - 1715
cpu score 729

I recently reinstalled vista on it and have had trouble finding drivers, but now vista says everything is up to date, and I have also gotten drivers off of the nvida site.
What could be causing such low numbers?

Have you checked your temps lately?

Check all of your power profile settings. If they are all set to max battery life, it may throttling your system.
