This is the best driver that I could find to date. It only works for 32-bit as far as I know but I haven't tried it on the 64-bit version.
I'm hoping for more updates.....
NVIDIA 186.10 for Windows7 (32bit)

For the 64-bit version, there is a Windows Update that will update the Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 driver for Windows 7. Gaming framerates in Zuma Deluxe :-) take a hit with these drivers but they allow you to run Aero and choose a resolution such as 1280 x 800 (or whatever your preference is).
I have a DV6000 and this was the only driver that is really required since the native generic sound driver is sufficient at giving you quality audio. I have no elaborate need for the exact sound drivers at this point.
I used the Vista64 NFORCE Chipset (#36079) drivers for the "Coprocessor" in the Device Manager.
I was also able to use the Vista64 version of the Quick Launch (#40139) buttons to find the "Unknown" in the Device Manager.
Don't forget to download Mozilla Firefox 3.5!!
I hope this helps....

I followed this tutorial after installing Win7 on a friend's HP Pavilion tx1332LA (the tutorial is in Spanish):
And since the coprocessor was no longer listed as an unknown device (or something similar), I assumed everything worked correctly afterwards... is that alright or do I have to check in some other way?
Well, here is a part of what the tutorial says (what was enough for me):
-Should work for 32-bits and 64-bits versions (I installed it on Windows 7 x64).
-First of all, we see that in the Device Administrator, there is an unknown device, a coprocessor. That's because Windows 7 can't find its driver.
-Download and install the following:
NVIDIA nForce Chipset Driver
and see if the coprocessor is recognized.
-If not, go to the Device Administrator and find the unrecognized coprocessor.
-Right-click on it and select Update driver...
-Select browse my computer -> let me pick -> have disk (this is what the tutorial says, it wasn't exactly the same for me, but I eventually got to pick a folder on my hard drive)
-Browse and select the following (assuming C represents the drive where everything from the file above got unpacked):
C:\swsetup\SP39535\WinVista32\SMU\smuc.inf (for 32-bits version)
C:\swsetup\SP39535\WinVista64\SMU\smuc64.inf (for 64-bits version)
Note: That is what the tutorial says, but I could only select the SMU folder and not a specific file. After selecting the SMU folder, a driver was automatically listed, I selected it and it got installed.
-Now, the coprocessor should be recognized (check the Device Manager).
Hope it helps!

I have an HP Pavilion m8400f with an AMD Phenom™ 9500 Quad-Core Processor • 2.20 GHz, 2MB L2 + 2MB shared L3 Cache, 2000 MHz System Bus and an NVIDIA nForce 430 Chipset.
I have difficulty making an ethernet connection since installing Windows 7.I have to unplug and reconnect the ethernet cable several times to get a connection.
I had this same problem in the past with Vista until Nvidia provided a driver update. It fixed the problem. Now it has returned with Windows 7. Any suggestions?
