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

Emachine t3616 changed os from vista to xp pro


On one of the cds that came with your machine are the drivers that are required for all the hardware in your system.

Should you have any problems finding them they are also available here

It would be worth downloading all the drivers for that machine and installing them one by one.

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.

I have an eMachines T3616 with Vista on it and want to change to XP-Pro. Vista is just too darn slow. The problem is the drivers. Any ideas? TYIA, Russ


i think the only problem you encounter is about the sound driver. Because the other driver is plug and play for the other devices.
Open the link below and download the realtek audio driver.
Good luck....

Sound Card - DirectX 9.0c compatible

This download is not supported on FAT16 and FAT 32 file systems.

*Supported chipsets: NVIDIA GeForce 6200 or greater (GeForce 8800 recommended for DirectX 10); ATI Radeon 9000 or greater. Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported. Updates to your video and sound card drivers may be required.

I think you'll need a better Video card.
