"Manual Tune" button on the right side of the dialog. In the "Manual Performance
Tuning" dialog you can choose the driver you want to use. Make sure that the "E
nable hardware acceleration" box is ticked and choose the driver from the "Drive
r Name" box. The NVIDIA Performance drivers are called "nvgl9.hdi" (only availab
le on Windows XP 32bit) and "nvd3d.hdi" (only available for AutoCAD 2009). For a
higher quality image you can also set the "Smooth Line display" to ON. Save you

ick the "Choose Driver" button. Press the "Revert from Direct3D" button, select
custom and choose 3dsmaxpd.drv as your new driver.
