Using one of the drivers you have already downloaded for the geForce. (Remember where you extracted them to)

Right click on "My Computer", "Properties","Hardware", "Device Manager"

Click on the VGA adapter that is not installed. Click the update driver button and tell the wizard you will specify the location of the driver. Then next click "don't search. I will choose the driver to install". Click the "Display adapter" and "next". On the next screen click "have disk". Go to the folder where you extracted the drivers to and then you will see that you can click "Geforce 6100/6150 (whichever one you have)

Acer Aspire T180 is missing Video Controller Driver


Find out what type of Nvidia graphics card it is, then goto the nvidia site and download the installer from them. The installer usually supports multiple families/models of cards. But yes, you need to download the installer for Win XP pro.
You can do it manually, or have it automatically scan for the hardware and download the correct driver automatically.

Here's a link to the automatic --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us

Nvidia mcp77 RTL8201CL driver for xp


I have the same laptop and installed WinXP and then as many of the Vista drivers as I could.
For the network drivers: I downloaded the Vista drivers for the Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g and that covered the wireless. For the LAN, I downloaded the HP Update software which downloaded the drivers. It's kind of a catch 22 that you can't install the network drivers unless you connect that specific laptop to the Internet so either start with the wireless drivers or as in my case, temporarily use a USB-Ethernet adapter.
Also, for video, it's an nVidia GeForce 8200M G (part of the "GeForce 8M Series") http://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/Windows/186.81/186.81_notebook_winxp_32bit_international_whql.exe&lang=us&type=GeForce M
Lastly, for the chipset, I used these drivers: http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/nforce_winxp_15.23_uk.html Please note the above drivers are for the "UK" but they seemed to work. After the fact, I found the following drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_winxp_15.25.html which I THINK may be the US equivalent. This installs most of the missing drivers so do this before running windows update to get the newer updated drivers.

VGA Driver Not Found for Asus X95GL WinXP 2002 Pro SP2


I think perhaps that should be X59GL.

The GL suffix suggests that the graphics chip is made by nVidia.

Please try downloading the GeForce for Notebooks driver for your relevant Operating System. You did not mention whether you run Windows XP, Windows Vista, or whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit - you need to know this.

If you check the System Properties in Control Panel, you should find this information.

Here is the driver download page:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook_drivers.html

I hope this solves your issue.

check the version of driver you have for the geforce graphics card. it is likely the generic microsoft driver. you need to update that by obtaining the correct and most current driver from the NVIDIA site

Drivers Emach T5230


I solved this problem completely later that day.
Here's how:

From the Emachines site I downloaded and installed the file:
RealTek_Audio_5_10_0_5152.

This dirver is for vista but it must also be for XP because it really worked well.

This can be found at www.emachines.com
click on: customer care > product support and downloads.

Then select desktops, T-Series, and T5230.
By clicking the plus sign [+] next to downloads below you will see a list of drivers including:

Realtek High Definition Audio Driver

be sure to click on the Driver File Download (36.29 MB) and not just the readme file.

download this to your computer and run the self extracting install.
Then right click on the MyComputer icon (on your desktop or windows explorer) and choose Hardware tab and Device Manager to verify that the RealTek audio device is working properly.

You'll see the other broken devices there of course.

I went to www.nvidia.com and downloaded:

nvidia is easy to navigate. Just click on Download Drivers

The GeForce 6150SE video card driver

From Option 1 select GeForce, GeForce 6 Series, Windows XP and click the Search button. Then click download now. to save the file to your computer so you can click on it there to perform the driver install. This made a huge difference in the quality of my display.

nForce 430 chipset driver installers

From Option 1 select nForce, nForce 4 Series, GeForce 6150SE/nForce 430, driver, windows XP. Then click search followed by Download Now to save the file to your computer for installation.

This took care of everything but the generic PCI device.
For that, I hooked my legitimate copy of Windows XP to the internet using my newly functional RJ-45 network jack and an ethernet cable and let windows find the driver for me. Which it did seemlessly. No More Yellow questionmarks in the Device Manager!

That was mostly painless.

I noticed that some quicktime programs didn't like my nVidia driver so I created an alternate hardware profile to use the generic windows video driver and that solved that problem too.

I didn't have to open the case on the emachine and I still have the Vista install disk that came with it if I want to go back.

I'm impressed that my games work fine on XP home when the didn't on Vista. I expected it to be the other way arround.
