I have a Compaq Presario F732NR. It came originally with Windows Vista. I have formatted my laptop and have put Windows 7. I can't find the NVidia Ge6100 UMA graphics driver for my particular laptop...

Try to install the winXP drivers but before running the installation file right click on the file, choose properties and at the compatibility tab choose for win xp, sp3, hit apply, ok and install as administrator.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

I formatted my hard drive now my media center doesent work

What is the Dell model name?

Did you put in and install the drivers from the drivers CD that comes with the PC? The drivers are on a separate CD from Windows and need to be installed separately after Windows is finished.

If you've gone through the driver installs, including the graphics driver, and you still get the message, post back and I'll help you find the right driver.

Hope this helps!

Vista error for games

I read that there is a patch, but like you i couldnt find it.
Here are some tips from Sierra,. I dont know if you had seen these or not.
Also you didnt say what video card you run.

If you are encountering errors, during your F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate installation process, please use the following methods in the order that they appear.

1. Make sure there are no smudges, scratches or other residue on the game DVD. If you see any smudges, try cleaning with damp soft lint free cloth (like an old T-shirt) from the inside edge to the outside edge in straight lines.

Note: Try the game installation on another pc system (if available), to determine if the disc is bad or damaged. If same issue occurs on another computer, you may need to replace the game disc.
For information regarding disk replacement, please go back to our main support page at:

2. Try you game Installation from a secondary DVD or DVD-RW drive if available.

3. We advise you to have Administrator privileges to properly install and run games on your Windows OS.
If you have administrator rights, and wish to give a user administrator rights, you can do this in the Users option of your Windows Control Panel.

4. Temporarily disable programs from running at system start-up, which in some cases could prevent game installation.
Use the Selective Startup option in MSCONFIG.
Go to your Start then select Run(if you don't see Run, Hold down the Windows key, and then press the R key on your keyboard to invoke the Run dialog box) In the Open: box type: msconfig and then press the Enter key.
When the menu appears, click on the General tab, if it is not already at the front. Under Startup Selection, select Selective Startup, and uncheck the selection Load Startup Items.
Click on Apply and then Ok/Close, and restart the system to retry the installation.

5. Locate and delete a file IsProBE.tlb from Runtime folder located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Professional

You can find the file by going to your My Computer icon
-Open local drive C and then Program Files
-Go into InstallShield folder then open the folder Professional and delete IsProBE.tlb then re-run the installation again

6. Check you system's manufacturer web site and see if they have any firmware driver updates for you DVD or DVD-RW drives.

7. Ensure that you have cleaned out your temporary directories. To do this, double click on My Computer, with the Right Mouse Button click on the appropriate hard drive and click on Properties with the Left Mouse Button. Click on the Disk Cleanup button ensure temporary files are checked and proceed to clean up these files.

8. Try ‘copy the contents’ method below.
Copy all DVD contents of the game into a folder on your hard drive and run the installation from that location (If you receive an overwrite prompt select Yes to all).
Note that you will need about 8 GB plus free space on the hard drive to apply this option.

See below for instructions.

-Quit all programs that are running.
-Right-click in empty are on the desktop then point to New, and then click Folder.
-Name the folder, and then press ENTER.
-Double-click on the folder that you just created.
-From the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
-Click the View tab. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
-Insert game DVD into your drive. Hold down the SHIFT key on your keyboard to prevent the program from starting automatically.
-Open My Computer, then right Click on game icon and left click on Open.
-Go to Edit menu at the top and click on Select All.
-Now, go to Edit again and click on Copy.
-Next step is to open the folder you created on the desktop, go to Edit menu, and then click Paste.
-This will copy the contents of the disc into the folder.

Please be patent since this may take some time. After all game contents been copied into the folder, double-click Setup.exe and then follow the on-screen instructions to install your game.

9. Ensure that your hard drive is not fragmented. To defrag your hard drive, click on START, go to PROGRAMS, go to ACCESSORIES, go to SYSTEM TOOLS, and select DISK DEFRAGMENTER, select the appropriate drive and click DEFRAGMENT. Please be aware that this process, depending on the size of the drive, may take up to and over an hour to complete.
