I too installed Windows 7 Pro-64 on my TX1000 series model TX1308ca with nVidia nForce Go6150 GPU. I successfully
used the old HP Vista64 SMBus & SMU driver to get rid of the "processor" driver issue, and then used Windows Update
to install the latest GPU driver (version 22.214.171.12467 by nVidia).
Everything worked well, until I started the Windows Performance Test. The test goes through Direct3D 9 tests
without a hitch, skips all DirectX 10 tests, and goes to Blue Screen of Death immediately upon starting the Windows
Media tests. This happens every time and in the same "spot" when the test is run.
I later noted that Windows crashes to BSoD also every time I try to access the web cam (USB 2.0 Camera driver
v.6.1.7600.16385 from Windows Update). I also could not access the Fingerprint Setup software (instant BSoD), that
got installed with AuthenTec AES1610 driver v.126.96.36.199 from Windows Update.
BSoD does NOT happen during any other usage of my laptop, but I do not use it to play games or videos.
I rolled back the graphics driver to standard VGA with 1280x800 resolution, keeping all other drivers as they were,
and was able to run the Windows Performance Assessment test, use the camera & set up the fingerprint recognition
software. No problems encountered, but the graphics assessment is at 1.0 & GPU RAM is not available.
Updating GPU driver back to the one from Windows Update brings all the BSoD problems back. Upon re-start &
recovery, I have allowed Windows to report the problem to Microsoft (on at least 10 occasions over the past month),
but there is no resolution yet!
I tried driver files suggested on HP Support Forum pages, on laptopvideo2go website, but none of them will install
with Go 6150 GPU on my laptop. I heard that old HP Vista64 GPU driver will not work with Windows7-64, but have not
tried this option.
I also downloaded and successfully installed sp45169 from HP (suggested on HP Forums for nVidia SMBus & SMU laptop driver under Windows 7-64) - no improvement in BSoD occurances.
Does anyone else have a working solution to symptoms quoted? If more info is needed from me to help solve the issue, I'd be more than happy to supply it.
Thanks, in advance, to all respondents.
