XP Drivers For Nvidia GeForce 7150M

First off, HP needs to provide more drivers for Windows XP.  You have to face the fact that Vista failed and everyone is switching back to XP.  Any computer expert will tell you that Vista is a piece of **bleep** that should have never been released. 

 

I own an HP Pavillion dv6910us and I just recently installed Windows XP.  Once I finished the installation, I spent about 6 hours searching the web for drivers that HP just won't provide because they're too stubborn to realize that vista **bleep**ing sucks.  I refuse to go back to Vista so I need these drivers.  Assuming that it is my graphics card since that what's listed on the product information page, I need drivers for the Nvidia GeForce 7150M card for Windows XP.

 

That would be absolutely wonderful.

 

Thanks for your **bleep**ty support,

Scott.

Your xp driver is found at NVIDIA.com. Here is a link to the driver that you need. It is Geforce Release 179. The chipset and video chip in your laptop is on the supported list.

Hi,

You may also try modded Nvidia ver 185.85 drivers.

 

How to install them in XP:

 

Basically it's a 3-step process:
1. Download driver here, double click and select extract,
2. Download modded INF here and replace original INF in extracted folder,
3. Install & reboot.

On laptop Pavilion dv6510ef, there is a lack of driver under XP for the chip Geforce 7150M.

Driver provided by Nvidia does not work. And, as told by a preceding post, Vista is a bleep.
