32-bit or 64-bit? And when you say you downloaded them manually, do you mean you installed them manually by going through Properties in the Device Manager and then browsing your computer for the nvdm file? nVidia's website shows the same driver for Vista and Win7 unless I'm missing something??

So what is not working. I am confused why the 186.03 for notebooks will not work...

GeForce Release 186

If you are running this install, and it is really not installing the driver maybe contact the hardware manufacturer.

The only othert thing I can suggest is if the install fails, go in to the device manager and find the vga adapter and point it to C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\186.03\English for the driver and tell it to use that...

I download the 186.03 directly from nVidia's website and then run the setup file. The program starts and unpacks all the driver files. The nVidia screen comes up but then I get an error message saying that no hardware can be found. So, I try to do the install manually by going into Device Manager and pointing it to the nvdm file and then I get an error message indicating that the driver was found but it's not compatible with this version of Windows, even though it's the Win7 64-bit driver.

Maybe your GPU Is faulty? i dont see any reason why it shouldnt install, and as for the x86/x64, run the one that coresponds with your OS, as in, x64 driver for x64, and x86 Driver for x86.

Works fine with Vista 64-bit so it's something specific to Win7 64-bit.

I'm not sure what you mean by "File" driver?
