I just bought a laptop, HP DV6745US which has a GeForce 630M in it. The laptop came with Win Vista Home Premium (per the COA sticker). I got it home, formatted the drive and put Win 7 Home Premium 64bit.

The problem is that Nvidia is saying I need to download the drivers straight from HP and HP is saying that Win 7 is not supported on my laptop.

Anyone got a work around?

I would download the drivers directly from http://www.nvidia.com.


I tried that first of course, upon installation it says "unable to detect hardware". When I run the Nvidia drivers auto detect it says to contact HP and download drivers from them.

I've tried the official 306 and the beta 310, same deal.

Thank you Unreal9400, I could kiss you lol. Worked without any hiccups, Vista Compatibility Mode. I'm good to go.

Edit: This is why I thought it was 630M
