Windows 7 drivers for Mobo w/ Nvidia chipset?
Where do I find the right drivers for this motherboard for an install of windows 7?

Motherboard came stock on this HP 3123w slimline. It's an [url="http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00910076&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3442918"]Asus M2NC51-AR (HematiteXL[/url]

It says it has a Nvidia Geforce 6150LE chipset. However I know that this is referring to the onboard GPU. The way I understand is that it is a 6150LE gpu integrated with nforce 410? or 430? southbridge. CPU-ID (hardware detection program) says...

Chipset: Nvidia Geforce 6150 <<< ????

Southbridge: Nvidia 410/430 MCP


SO, upon looking at HP's website and getting NO support for windows 7 drivers (only xp and vista) for this motherboard, and on nvidia's driver search, I have really been confused about which driver to get??? or if it is even available???

I might add that I have installed a [url="http://www.sparkle.com.tw/product_detail.asp?id=94&sub_id=278"]Sparkle Geforce 9400 GT vid card[/url] and run out of it anyway. I don't use on board GPU anyway.

I need help!?!

Thanks

WELL WELL WELL!

I searched nvidia's driver search again and looks like they need to do a little update!!!!!

I searched the nforce 4 (legacy) drivers and found nforce 430/6150 LE and it DOES NOT have windows 7 in their drop down menu, and so naturally i think NO win7 drivers.
well when I select windows [u][b]vista[/b][/u] x32 for OS, it pops up the driver i need to download page "for vista", and it says.....

operating system: "windows 7, windows vista" what the?!!!!!!!!

Well I guess that's it then.
Thanks anyway!

This is the driver page it brings up.... [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_vista_win7_32bit_15.49.html"]HERE[/url]

They need to fix their drop down menu to include windows 7. VERY misleading for dummies like me!

I can see how you could get a little confused there. However, it should be noted that virtually any driver made for Vista will also work in Win7. MS designed Win7 this way.
