Windows 7 won't accept the correct driver

  ernieernie 19:47 14 Jan 2010

I have a HP TouchSmart IQ770. I have just done a full install of Windows 7. Most things are OK eccept for the video which now has a generic driver which is hopelessly inadequate for the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 video adaptor, everything is squashed.
I have downloaded the correct driver from HP but when I run it I get the following message:-
Your system does not meet the minimum requirements for the update. Update has been cancelled (9998).
Seperately, I have also had a message saying 'hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported'. The only alteration the the computer has been the installation of Windows 7.
I have tried the HP site but found it most frustrating.
Help, please.

Visit the nVidia site click here & click on 'Graphics Drivers' button under 'Option 2: Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products'.

If I do a manual search, it appears to be offering the wrong drivers click here & click on the 'Supported Products' tab. G

I am in the process of backing up the 'Windows old' directory which was created during the Windows 7 installation to an external drive and it may take another hour. I will explore your recommendation when that is finished.

I did as you said, Crossbow, and downloaded the one that nvidia suggested but when I ran it it failed with the message " Could not find any drivers that are compatible with the current hardware setup"
Ho hum! Any more ideas?
