when you download the driver the download box says run or save choose save, a box will appear asking where you want to save, desktop is normal so you can easily find it.
after it is on your desktop double click on it and it will auto install. you may want to uninstall the old driver first from add/remove programes. nvidia drivers.

podlod, you have Microsoft Windows XP Home 32 bit operating system. You have AMD 64 bit CPU. (No problem with that)
You need the driver that matches your operating system

Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly., Download Driver for GeForce 7 Series, Windows XP, Language English(UK) click here

Before you can download you must tick the box 'I have read and agree to the terms and conditions of the NVIDIA Software License Agreement.'

Version: 169.21
Release Date: 19.12.2007
Operating System: Windows XP, Windows XP Media Center Edition

When you have downloaded the new driver to your pc (put it on desktop or in a folder)
you have to uninstall the Old Driver click here
Then you can install the New Driver click here
