Sounds like either the wrong driver was loaded or the file was corrupt?

Try a restore to roll back the driver installation

Start, programs, Accessories, System Tools, System restore

Select "restore my computer to an earlier time" and then CONTINUE

In the calander find the entry that refers to installing the driver or one prior to that time and select it and press NEXT.

If you were updating to resolve a problem, try a fresh d/l of the driver from the VGA card manufacturers site rather than from nVidia direct as they should have validated the driver.

make sure that the driver is for your card and OS EXACTLY.

If you were updating "just because" then I suggest you follow the First Rule of Engineering... If it aint broke, DONT fix it :-)

    Oh you may want to boot to SAFE mode (press F8 while booting before "starting windows" appears) then select system restore when prompted to do so

  • Dave Jul 03, 2008

    So have you uninstalled the driver now?



    Can you boot to safe mode ?



    please post back the model number of yor video card

HOW DO I UPDATE MY VIDEO CARD?


I would say you have to go about this one on your own. HP has old drivers for this card. HOwever, you can choose to go "Generic" if you must have an update. The SR2023wm has a NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Graphics Drivers. Meaning, go to http://www.nvidia.com and look for a driver update there. If this was helpful, please consider leaving 4 thumbs up!

I am formatted laptop and lost all the drivers


The best option is to install Windows XP and do all the windows update at www.microsoft.com. Install the SP2 update. This is should find most of the drivers. Also, websites like www.drivers.com provide driver updates.

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 can't find all the drivers for my desktop. I downgraded from vista to windows xp, I have a HP Pavilion a6230n PC can you help me out?


This system uses an nVidia MCP61 chipset and the nVidia site has the drivers for it. I needed to download the motherboard set to get the ethernet adapter to work. After I installed the motherboard set, Windows update was able to locate and install the rest of the drivers needed for XP on this beast.

Windows XP SP2, Intel DG965WH mobo. Two SATA hard drives, two EIDE hard drives (WD200EB). Suddenly one day, without warning, the two EIDE drives just disappeared from the Hard Disk Drive list and files...


the problem sounds like you either lost the IDE channels on the MOBO or the chipset was updated with corrupt files.

run everest home and see if there are current updates for the northbridge chipset. if you have 2 ide channels on the board switch the primary and secondary ribbons and see if the hard drives are there. if your cdrom's are ide and after switching ribbon cables they disappear and the hard drives reappear your mobo lost an ide channel, you would need to replace the board.
