Hi,

According to this thread GeForce FX Go5600 - LaptopVideo2Go Forums

98.16 is the last driver by NVIDIA to support Vista for FX series. So would I be able to upgrade from 97.35 to 98.16?

I'm not sure. Notebook manufacturers tend to use custom device IDs for their onboard graphics, and generic driver installers may not recognize them.

Something like that was true of my cheap Compaq CQ50-105NR (from 2008). It uses an nVidia 8200M graphics chip. The drivers downloaded from nVidia would not install. However, once I installed the Vista drivers from Compaq (HP), I later received actual Win7 drivers through Windows Update. I'm currently using the latest WHQL mobile graphics drivers from nVidia.

Shouldn't hurt to try, if it will work or not is another question.
