    Hi I downloaded the recommended driver and proceeded to setup. I first got a popup saying NVIDIA setup could not locate any drivers compatible with current hardware and will exit. On exit a popup said setup not complete would I like to try again and I pressed yes. Next popup says that the OS is not Vista and will terminate. The OS is genuine Vista Home Premium. Any help please? Janice

    I've re-tried downloading the link as sggestedwith exactly the same results. No
    joy at all. Mine is definitely genuine verified Vista Home Premium. I'm giving up. thanks all for trying.

To get your laptop drivers updated and working you need to get them from here

Also after downloading the drivers you need to download the enhanced INF file which adds support to your mobile card.

Nvidia geforce 7300 GS tv-out


well...the 7300 GS is not quite a powerfull board.
frst it may be a problem if the card really support the tv out..
However,if it is just a driver/codec problem,I suggest you to reinstal the windows.the drivers and codecs which you repetedly used can harm your windows registers.
after all this,if the problem persists,you can try instaling and older version of Nvidia driver..many times this old drivers work better..
