You have the NVIDIA GeForce 7150M, same as my laptop. I went to Control Panel and ran Windows Update manually choosing to also see Optional Updates.

Many of the drivers posted at Nvidia will not install on machines with NVIDIA GeForce 7150M..at least not without some jumping through hoops..the one from WU works fine for mine.

Hi, this site provides nvidia graphics drivers edited and optimised for laptops (drivers from nvidia will not install, and even if they did could overheat and seriously damage your card). www.laptopvideo2go.com

 

There are a lot to choose from, personally I would go for this one first but try others if you want - http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/topic/24003-forceware-18585/ this should be fine (there is a list of compatible cards in the post).
