I installed Gears of War onto my laptop with no problems, however when i started it, it gave me a message saying i needed to install 'nVidiaforceware 163.44'. I downloaded and attemped to install the 163.44 driver from various locations (websites), however every time the installation starts it gives me a message saying it couldn't find any drivers compatible with what i was installing. Then when it exits, Vista then gives me the option to re-start the installation on recommended settings. When i do so a new error message comes up saying the installation requires a Windows Vista 32-bit operating system, then exits. But i'm running on a Windows Vista 32-bit operating system. Can somebody give me a link to an nVidiaforceware 163.44 driver download compatible with my laptop specs or some advise on how to approach the problem.
My laptop specs:
Manufacturer:HP
model:HP Pavillion dv9000
processer:Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 2.0Ghz
memory ram: 2046 MB (2 Gigs)
operating system:Windows Vista Home Premium
gpu:nVidia Geforce 8600M GS 256MB

Please help,thanks a lot.

From the Nvidia web site:http://nvidia.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/...nNlYXJjaF9ubCZwX3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1

Question


Where are the notebook or laptop drivers?
Answer


NVIDIA provides driver updates to our Notebook and Laptop computer partners. The driver updates are then packaged and distributed by the partners, often with custom power management and other features and settings specific to that platform. NVIDIA does not control the schedule the various notebook and laptop providers use to release new drivers for their products.

NVIDIA is NOT allowed to directly distribute drivers for the vast majority of Notebook and Laptop computers.

The only way to get updates for NVIDIA laptop or notebook graphics cards is though the notebook provider.

Looks like you can only use the OEM drivers
