I recently installed xp 64 bit and downloaded all the drivers to make my hardware compatible but when I run the nvidia driver, 175.16, I get this error 'The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will no exit.' On my device manager under display adapter it says I only have Standard VGA Graphics Adapter but in my bios it says I have the 7950 gtx, can anyone help me get it working please

Do you have it set to the right slot in your BIOS, like where it says something about Primary Adapter set to PCI-E?

7950gtx isn't supported in that driver, this appears to be a laptop gpu chip.
Latest drivers from nvidia for that are 167.51 January 11, 2008
