help with Nvidia Go 6150
My info is as follows:
Product Name F553CL
Microprocessor 2.0 GHz AMD Turion? 64 Mobile Technology MK-36
Video Graphics NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (UMA)

I decided to run XP (as previous posts have suggested that Vista is terrible). I gathered a lot of support (found below), but the drivers that have been recommended to me do not work for the video card. I am at a complete loss. Do I wait and without graphics until an update is released, or is there an actual solution for Video? PLEASE HELP ME!

what we have to do is find a match at hp.
this is not a easy task by far but you have to match your main laptop chipset + cpu + video with a model before yours.
i will look to see if i can find something for you but it will take time as i have to find the full hardware spec of your machine then try and find a match.

may be worth you reading these two post's as well , you can see the problem with sound , video and some possible ways , and links to downloads.

and see if you can force the standard driver from nvidia for the " 6 " series of cards.
if your unsure how to force or even unpack the nvidia driver to force it have a read of this.

as you can see i have put a lot of work in to this problem for people but what seems to work for one does not work for another.
Thanks. You do the lord's work!
I will work on it and hope I find success.

what i have done today is sit and look at every model in the F500 series at hp , my eyes are sore but i have not found what i ws looking for, looks like the whole 500 range shipped with vista.
thats a real pain in the backside but i will keep looking for you.
Hi there, I've GeForce Go 6150 problem too.

i've just installed "Half Life 2: Episode 1" into my Compaq V3415AU notebook but the display was not good at all. The installation suggested i upgrade my NVidia driver or else the display might not work properly. I've checked NVidia's website, and the closest driver I could find is the GeForce 6150 which I believe is for desktop PC and not notebooks.

I wonder if installing the desktop update version could solve the problem...or would that make matters worse?

yes it may slove your problem the only difference is you won't have all the power save options built in the driver like the go drivers do.
before you install it make sure you do a system restore point just in case things don't work out the way they should.
if it don't work use system restore to restore the computer back to the point before the desktop driver was installed.
Ok, thanks. How do i create a system restore point, and how to get back to the original state? ...sorry i'm not exactly a tech savvy person. Eek

if your running windows xp

click start , all programs , accessories , system tools , system restore

the above works for making and restoring you get the option to choose what you want to do on the first screen

if your running vista click start , in the search on the bottom type system restore
