Nvidia GeForce FX Go5600 (Acer Notebook)

Hi all,

I need your support: I want to update the OS of my notebbok Acer Aspire 1700 form Windows XP to Windows 7. Is the Graphic Card Nvidia GeForce FX Go5600 compatible with Windows 7? Where can I find the drivers for this Graphic Card?

Thank you very much

Regards

Your video card will work with Windows 7, but does not have enough memory for the Aero interface, so you will only be able to use the basic themes... get the drivers -=> here

Hey. The 5600 series should just barely be able to run Aero, but as Tews says, you might not have enough dedicated video memory. Do you know how much it has?

You may install the latest video driver from NVIDIA anyhow, using this method.

Hi Tews, Hi Torrentg,

and thank you very much for your answers.

Tews, whit your metod, I have to install Windows 7 and then to run Drive Detective and it will install automaticaly the driver, isn't it (but the software seems not to find drivers for Windows 7 for the Graphic Card)?
And with the metod of Torrentg I have to download the drivers for the FX 5600 and then to make the change for the notebook: where can I find the drivers for Windows 7 for the FX 5600?

So, which do you think is the better way to get drivers for my FX Go5600 Graphic Card?

Thank you very much again!

There are no drivers for windows 7... I would use torrentg's method ... either way though, if you are going to use the aero interface, you will have to upgrade your video card...

In your case, download the Vista driver instead. Then follow the rest of the steps.

I have the same card. It is working fine on Windows Vista using this driver: ForceWare Release 95

I am going to try the suggested editing to make it work on Windows 7, unless someone has an updated method for getting this to work?
