I am upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 and the Upgrade Advisor states that NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Ethernet needs the latest driver. The current driver is 22.214.171.124, 8-1-2008. I cannot find the uodate on the NVIDIA site! This is the only action the Advisor mentions.

What is the model # of your PC?
There are no standalone nVidia network drivers.
You need to download and install the nForce chipset driver which contains the motherboard drivers and network drivers.
But you have to know what chipset is in your PC in order to install the correct nForce chipset driver.

My desktop PC is the HP Pavilion Slimline s3240uk and the system board chipset NVIDIA MCP 61.

Below is the link to the motherboard specs for your PC:
Your model has the NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE onnboard video with the nForce 430 chipset.
This is the latest chipset driver. It will have the network adapter driver and other motherboard drivers as well.
I forgot to ask what bit version of W7 you installed, so I have provided the links to both the 32 and 64 bit versions of the driver.
You can also get the latest video driver from this link. Just select the GeForce 6 series video.
If you want the latest audio drivers you can get them at the link below. Accept the agreement. Download and install the driver for the W7 version you have (32/64).
