What drivers do I use for my GeForce 6800 Go card for Vista RC1 x86?
I downloaded the GeForce & TNT drivers for Vista x86 but it said no hardware found. Vista came with some drivers, but they dont have the nVidia control panel so I cant change my aspect ratio settings.

Its in my Dell 9300 Laptop and Dell dont have Vista drivers yet. What do I do?

The drivers there do the same thing as the official nVidia drivers, just says "No hardware found for these drivers" or something to that effect.

Is there no way to get nVidia control panel for GeForce 6800 Go in Vista? I REALLY need to be able to Maintain Aspect ratio cause widescreen stretch sucks.

You need to extract the driver to a folder and replace the default inf with the modded one (http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/infs/95series/9633inf_lh/nv_disp.inf). Then install.

You can get the Control Panel, but it is very limited in functionality right now. It is missing a lot of settings, maybe even the one you're looking for.

Tried that, now it says "Setup has detected that the operating system in use is not Windows Vista". aand rants on about how its only for Vista.

I am running Windows Vista RC1 x86 (as in 32bit version).

Any ideas?

Download the Vista RC1 x86 drivers (96.33) directly from nVidia.

Use WinRAR to extract contents of the setup file into a folder. Replace the default INF in that folder with one from lv2go. Try to install.

If you still get error message then dump Vista and go back to XP. You'll save yourself from the headaches.
