Windows 7: Standard VGA Adapter problem.

It has the Nvidia 6150 LE integrated video on it. This,

NVIDIA DRIVERS 306.97WHQL

should be the one you need for the video driver.

Sigh, actually thought I had it for a second. The graphics driver could not find the compatible software.

I get this feeling that HP has gone and done something at the firmware level where the reference Nvidia driver won't install, which should never be done on a desktop. If that is what they have done then you may be stuck with using what they have available,

NVIDIA Graphics Driver Update HP Pavilion a1730n Desktop PC | HP® Support

It is for Vista but will work in Windows 7.

Your system does not meet the requirements for this update. Update has been cancelled (9998).
Damn. Remember how I said earlier, whenever I boot up my PC it says SIS PCI True Color 16 Bit, VESA BIOS supported or some stuff like that. I think the repairist removed the NVIDIA card and put a new card (SIS).

Are you sure that the PC ever had a discrete graphics card in it? Its onboard graphics are from nVidia.

I can imagine that the onboard graphics died, and your repairman stuck in an old PCI (not PCI-E) graphics card that he had lying around. If that's what he did, you need to find a new repairman who is more forthcoming.

Yes, I had this PC since 06' and upgraded to 7 in 11', we had NVIDIA as the graphics until this incident. The incident was the VGA input got broken out loose, and I sorta think the circuit with it got broken off as well. That's why he put an old PCI in. He put in a SIS card named SIS PCI 16 Bit True Color Video Accelator, VESA Bios Supported. I just want to know if there's any way to improve it or if you can find the drivers; because this is driving me nuts and for sure I'll find a new repairman,

Best I can find using that name is that it is likely this,

SiS 6326 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

which if that is what it is your chances of finding a driver for it are precisely zero. That card came out 15 years ago, and any and all support for it ended before even XP came out.

If that is what it is your best best would be to forget about it and pick up a cheap PCI-E video card (your motherboard has a PCI-E x16 slot available).

Damn. I was right. The repairman tossed in a free (I hope that it was free) relic of a graphics card, which was worth less than nothing in a Windows 7 PC.

The cheapest PCI-E X16 graphics card currently on the market would be an upgrade to the original onboard graphics.
