    So I was loading XP on a Toshiba laptop that came with Vista and I couldn't find the correct video driver.

    After some searching I found laptopvideo2go.com they have tons of drivers and after trying a few I found one that worked.

    Worth a look if you are having trouble finding Nvidia drivers.

    Nvidia doesn't release laptop drivers on their site. You have to get them from the laptop maker.

    Toshiba only has the Vista driver on their site for this model.

    ya, i'm actually using some laptopvideo2go video drivers. however, it can be hard to find some drivers there that work with all your stuff. like it'll work with one game but another game will have artifacts and stuff. my current ones are good, though. and they're better performers than the most recent video drivers on dell's site, from back in like mid 2007 :ugh:

    that's what I get for buying a computer with a sticker that says "Designed for Windows XP, Windows Vista Capable"

    are you saying this is diff? Because afaik the nvidia drivers are the SAME (I know their "GO" mobile chipsets require diff drivers from their desktop unified drivers, but the same package should work vista/xp.)
