The motherboard or 'nforce' drivers is what I was referring to.
nforce = nvidia motherboard chipset
geforce = graphics

...just for future reference.

Dean is correct though that software either needs to be updated or removed, it's way too old to have compatibility with win 7.

I'd leave that chipset driver alone - it may run fine with Win 7 as long as you are running x86 (32bit).

Windows wont automatically Update anymore..I don't know why, I already uninstalled Arcsoft, so idk why it is showing up again.

I also tried downloading the SP1 manually and it only gives me the "Find" or "Save" option and not a "Run" or "Open" ...I have always hated this computer ....

Should I take out my newly installed graphics card though?


If you would like to Teamview, that might be helpful.
