Old laptop with nvidia

By aj3jr ·
Would this or litestep help me? My video card, NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200, under Windows 7 isn't supported. It only does 1024x768 true color.

32 or 64 bit?

by Slayer_ In reply to Old laptop with nvidia

This is Vista 32bit version of the 5200.

It may work for you, but its a stretch

You can also try this,
7200 for Win7 32 bit

Many nVidia drivers are cross compatible, so it could be worth a try. If it fails, you can still boot to safe mode. But it sounds like your laptop is not meant to have Windows 7.

Frankly, I don't recommend either, I recommend dumping WIndows 7

Just saw your reply.

Sorry for the delay. Just saw the notification about your post. Planning to get a netbook and put important docs on it. Then I'll try the drivers. Will try the win7 version first.

Yes it's 32bits.
Thanks,
