I have a Sony vaio vgn-s460 with windows XP. and a geforce go 6200 graphics card. Ive been trygn to isntall the new drivers that nvidia has put out but when i try to, the installation says this "the NVIDA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatable with your current hardware. Setup will now exit"

This is the "81.98_forceware_winxp2k_english_whql" that i just downloaded from their site. it is the correct OS as well. Any ideas one what i can do? Any help at all would be great, thanks!

I would get Driver Cleaner at http://www.drivercleaner.net/ (it is free) and clean up the previous driver installation. Then try installing the current driver again. Once you have downloaded driver cleaner, go to add/remove programs and delete the current driver. Then boot into safe mode and run Driver Cleaner TWICE, each time deleting all that it finds. Then reboot and install the current driver.
