Nvidia drivers not recognizing hardware
I recently purchased a Toshiba P105 S9337. It comes with an Intel T7200 processor mounted on an I945 mobo. For video Toshiba installed a 7900GS. Well needless to say I was not happy with Vista or the 4200 rpm hard drive, so I ditched both. I installed a 7200 rpm drive and Windows XP. I've got all the hardware up and running to include drivers with the exception of the 7900GS. I download the drivers Nvidia leads me to on the website, however during the install the install wizard informs me that the NVIDIA hardware setup cannot find the hardware the driver was selected for. Any help would be appreciated.

Well I believe the problem lies with my lack of XP mobo drivers. I simply can't find any. Toshiba only supplies display drivers for integrated graphics, but no other drivers for the motherboard.

Squall....which link are you talking about?

I assume we are talking about a laptop here? If so, no nVidia driver on this site will help you much. Try www.laptopvideo2go.com for drivers for your card. As for chipset drivers, hit the Intel website and did around for your chipset.

PS-He means the only link with the letters "FAQ" in it.

Laptop yes. Oh, I'm scowering plenty of forums. It seems to be a common problem and I'm not find answers. His link to the FAQ was worthless and provided no answers, which is why I assumed he meant something else.
