    I have a nvidia Geforce Go 6150 that i seem to be having a few problems with, when i download the updated driver that my computer keeps wanting me to download.

    Its listed as an important update in my HP Total care advisor
    and its a Nvidia VGA Driver.


    Like i said ive tried updating this more than a few times and every time i do
    as soon as i run the install and the driver is installed windows keeps telling me that the driver failed and fixed itself. and this happens about every 3 mins.

    ive come to the conclusion that i cant be the only person with this problem and that its the driver right?

    if not how can it be my laptop, its brand new

    Do not use it!

    I have an Nvidia card and MS Update keeps trying to shove an Nvidia WHQL driver onto the system. It totally locks up the video and I have to do a rerpair install to get the PC operational again.

    Multiple other drivers work fine.
