Hello Ebartolon,

You should be able to install the NVIDIA 8M drivers for Vista in Windows 7.

This is the link for the 179.28 drivers.

64-bit
GeForce Release 179

32-bit
GeForce Release 179

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Ebartolon,

See if using Compatibility Mode on the installation file with Vista selected will allow it to install for you.
