HP DV6745US, Nvidia 630M & Win7 (no drivers)

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?

  1. 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.

    Here are your PC specs- http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01296362&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3646950
    It's using NVIDIA GeForce Go 7150M not 630M as you mention.
    Try installing in compatibilty mode for Windows Vista.

  6. 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
