Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Is this a video card upgrade where you are removing a working video card and installing the nvidia geforce go 6800? Are you trying to install the driver from the installation cd that came with the card? Do you see the video card in device manager? There are different things to try, but knowing the answers to these questions will point us in the right direction.

If you are just updating the driver, you should follow these steps. Make sure you have the current driver available to install. Then go to http://www.drivercleaner.net/ and get Driver Cleaner (it is free). Then go to add/remove programs, and delete the current video driver. Then boot into safe mode and run Driver Cleaner TWICE, each time deleting all that it finds. Then re-boot and install the current driver.

I am looking under the forceware 77.72 PDF file, and there are no go cards under the compatibility table. But the geforce 6800 ultra is there. Perhaps they just did not feel that it was necessary to put the "go" part on the list?

You need special laptop drivers, such as xtreme g, omega, or laptopvideo2go. To get these drivers just run or google search or go to guru3d.com, they have all the drivers you need.

I have the GeForce Go 5700 in my laptop. I got the same error. This is what I did to fix it. I assume it will work for the Go 6800 also.

Step 1
Go to your Laptop vendors website and download the latest driver they have for you video card.

Step 2
Go to Nvidias website and download their latest driver.

Step 3
Using Winrar extract the driver from your Laptop vender into a folder on your hard drive. If its and EXE file right click and select extract file. Do the same thing with the driver from Nvida's website.

Step 4
Open the folder with the driver from your Laptop vendor, and find the setup information file. Mine was called nvuw. It might also be called nv4_disp[1]. Open this file with Notepad. Copy everything in the manufacture section in mine it looked like this.

%NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_031A.1% = nv4_NV3x_2263, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_031A&SUBSYS_22631584
%NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_031A.2% = nv4_NV3x_2261, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_031A&SUBSYS_22611584
%NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_031A.3% = nv4_NV31_2262, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_031A&SUBSYS_22621584

In the folder with the Driver from Nvidia open the file nv4_disp[1] with notepad. Highlight the whole Manufacture section and Paste the Manufactured section from the Vendors Driver folder. Careful to only paste over the manufactured section.

Step 5
Go back to the setup information file in the Vendors driver folder. Copy everything in the Localizable Strings section at the bottom of the page. mine looked like this.
; Localizable Strings
NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_031A.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5600"
NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_031A.2 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5600 "
NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_031A.3 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5600 "
NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_031A.4 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5600 "
NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_031A.5 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5600 "
NVIDIA_NV31.DEV_031A.6 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5600 "
NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0324.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200"
NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0324.2 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 "
NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0324.3 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 "
NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0325.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5250"
NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_0325.2 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5250 "
NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_032D.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5100"
NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_032D.2 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5100 "
NVIDIA_NV34.DEV_032D.3 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5100 "
NVIDIA_NV36.DEV_0348.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700 "
NVIDIA_NV36.DEV_0348.2 = "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700 "
NVIDIA_NV36.DEV_034C.1 = "NVIDIA Quadro FX Go1000"
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_0140.1 = "NVIDIA NV43"
NVIDIA_NV43.DEV_0148.1 = "NVIDIA NV43 "
DiskID1 = "NVIDIA Windows 2000/XP Driver Library Installation Disk 1"
DiskID2 = "NVIDIA Windows 2000/XP Driver Library Installation Disk 2"
DiskID3 = "NVIDIA Windows 2000/XP Driver Library Installation Disk 3"
DiskID4 = "NVIDIA Windows 2000/XP Driver Library Installation Disk 4"
DiskID5 = "NVIDIA Windows 2000/XP Driver Library Installation Disk 5"
NVSVC.name = "NVIDIA Display Driver Service"
NVSVC.desc = "Provides system and desktop level support to the NVIDIA display driver"
NVUninstall.desc = "NVIDIA Display Driver"
Then go to the nv4_disp[1] file in the Nvidia Driver folder. Paste everything to the Localizable Strings section.
Save the file and exit.

Step 6
Now run the setup file in the Nvida Driver Folder. If you did everything right it should install with out any error message.
