Recently upgraded my HP Pavilion 8327 Laptop to Vista 32-bit. The default drivers installed were those provided by Microsoft (dated 2006), which still allows for 3D functions, aero, and gaming (but with alot of rendering bugs). The Microsoft drivers do not have the Nvidia style Control panel to change settings either.

New Vista drivers (or any Geforce Go 7600 drivers for that matter) are not available from Nvidia's website. I don't know why that is but it is very upsetting that Nvidia abandonded this chipset when it is not even that old. HP's website just has the drivers for Geforce Go 7400 on thier website.

Tried looking on the net but there are no official drivers anywhere. I am sure there must be modified drivers out there that will install on Vista for the Go 7600. If you have any more information please post here.

Go to the Hp Website and look for Pavillion 9843cl drivers. They are for the 8600M but I think they will work for the 7600. They are 174.xx. Worth a try.

None of the HP drivers worked in Vista for the 7600 (couldn't detect any compatible hardware).

However, I went to that laptopvideo2go website and found they had a modded inf that allowed installation of the newer drivers on any mobile Geforce Go chip. Downloaded the newest Vista forceware for Geforce 7 series, along with the modded inf, and was able to install it successfully for my Geforce Go 7600. Now I have the nvidia control panel back, and no more texture corruptions for most games, plus a nice performance boost!
