Need driver for Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 for Windows 7

Hi, can anyone please tell me where I can download the driver for Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 for Windows 7. I have tried the drivers for Windows Vista but it does not work. Thanks in advance.

Re: Need driver for Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 for Windows 7

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.....

Update:

 

The 32-bit driver DOES NOT work for the 64-bit version.

 

I will post a link to the 64-bit driver version should I find one.

Re: Need driver for Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 for Windows 7

Update:

 

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....

Re: Need driver for Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 for Windows 7

I followed this tutorial after installing Win7 on a friend's HP Pavilion tx1332LA (the tutorial is in Spanish):

 

http://www.taringa.net/posts/ebooks-tutoriales/2570715/NVIDIA-nForce-Chipset-Driver-(windows-7-_-vista).html 

 

 

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
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39501-40000/sp39535.exe

 

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!

Re: Need driver for Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 for Windows 7

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?
