Dell M6500/quadro fx2800M Graphics drivers -what works???

I'm struggling to find drivers for the Nvidia 2800M in our new Dell M6500.


It's got Windows 7 x64 and autodesk's certified hardware website recommends driver version 18.918 however I can't find this on nvidia's website. if I use the direct download from autodesk I get HP drivers, that don't work.


If I download and install the most recent drivers recomended by Nvidia (258.96) I get a message from autocad when it starts that d3dx9_37.dll can't be found and the application won't run - which is untrue, as it starts anyway (after popping up the same message again). using 3dconfig to look at the driver settings then shows me it's running in software mode and no hardware drivers can be found..


What's going on???????
