Presario V6500 Video Card error on XP install

jjcamp
I just bought a new Compaq Presario V6500Z (with Geforce Go 7150) which came with Windows Vista. Deciding that I wanted XP on it instead, I proceeded to install XP. After installation I was able to install all of my drivers successfully except for the video card driver.

Here is the problem: I tried both the regular ForceWare drivers and the Go ForceWare (when asked was videocard I had for the Go ForceWare the 7150 was not listed). Upon installation both of these told me that it could not find the correct driver for my video card.

The really phenomenal thing, however, is that in the device manager nothing shows up under display adapters, instead, under "Other Devices" there is a listing with a yellow question mark that says "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)".

This problem has confounded me (someone who is quite proficient with computers) for 6 hours today. HP's tech support was useless, of course.

Any help with this is greatly appreciated.
