  1. I have recently purchased a second hand toshiba satellite. I formatted the drive and istalled xp pro but i can not get the display drivers to install. The laptop has a nvidia geforce fx 5200 video card in it and i have tried downloading the display drivers fot the geforce cards from nvidia.com halfway through instalation i get this message.
    "the nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware setup will now exit"
    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Graphics Drivers

    Are you downloading the drivers using the same laptop? If you are then it might be worth trying to download them onto another machine first, burn them onto a cd rom and then try re-installing. Also, go to the manufacturer of the laptop website. Laptops are strange beasts sometimes and although it may say it is an Nforce graphics card, it may be a "hybrid", which could require special drivers for it. Hope this helps!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You need to get your graphics card drivers from Toshiba.

    This is because your graphics card is an Nvidia mobile device.
