It seems that there were some problems with MacBooks fitted with NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT and GeForce 9600 graphics cards that needed addressing, and consequently Apple has put out NVIDIA Graphics Update 2009. Downloading the software comes free-of-cost, much like the recent iPhone OS 2.2.1 update, and you are well advised to get it as soon as possible.

“This update improves cursor movement when using the Apple Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI adapter with the Mini DisplayPort enabled MacBook Air, MacBook and MacBook Pro. It also improves playback of HD video running on systems with NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT or GeForce 9600M graphics," explains Apple.

If the situation applies to you, then there are two methods that you can employ to get the update. The first and simplest one is to check its availability thought the Software Update feature - to do so just click Apple Menu, then Software Update, and wait for the response. You could alternately manually download and install the update which weighs in at 3.2MB and provides language support for English, French, Spanish, Deutsch, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, and Suomi, to name just a few.

There is a good reason why Apple had to release the NVIDIA Graphics Update 2009, and that reason is to be found with the users. They noticed that the Dell displays and even some 30-inch Cinema Displays would put out distorted video whenever the DisplayPort adapter was used. The normal course of action was to complain about it to Apple, and get the software developer to put their programmers to work on a fix.

If you would like to get NVIDIA Graphics Update 2009, you can download it directly from Apple. An alternative download location is available here.

Please note that at the moment this article was posted the Apple download location was down for unknown reasons.
