Confused about my video card (help please...)

Hello everyone. I need some very basic help, so please bear with me. In encountering problems with stability when playing Sim City Societies, I discovered that I probably need to update my driver. The thing is that I'm not very knowledgable with this so I want to make sure which driver I should update with. My system info tells me:

Adapter Type: NVidia MCP67M

Chip Type: GeForce 7150M/NForce 630M

I'm running Vista Home Premium (32)

The thing is that I can't figure out the video ID. Somewhere on this site I found the following:

CODE

;Mobile GPU's by www.laptopvideo2go.comNVIDIA_C51.DEV_0244.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150"NVIDIA_C51.DEV_0247.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100"NVIDIA_C67.DEV_0530.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 7190M / nForce 650M"NVIDIA_C67.DEV_0531.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M"NVIDIA_C67.DEV_0532.1 = "NVIDIA MCP67M"NVIDIA_C67.DEV_0533.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 7000M / nForce 610M"NVIDIA_C67.DEV_053F.1 = "NVIDIA MCP67M "

There sees to be one ID for NVidia MCP67M and another for NVidia 7150M.

Which one do I use? or does it even matter? Can I just download the 169 driver?

Sorry for such basic questions, but I just got this notebook a couple of months ago and I really don't want to screw up too much.. Many thanks for your help in advance! :) :)

Hey, I got the same video card and I'm running Vista 32bit too, I have a HP Pavilion DV6646US, I try to install the NV Drivers 169.09, like the guide say and I choose "NVIDIA GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M" drivers, but doesn't work, when I'm on the installation, I got a blue screen, something about the video driver, I hope you can install those.

Read the faq section, you can use any driver but remember to download the modified inf file along with the driver. After extracting the driver file to a folder (e.g. 16928_vista), replace the original inf in that folder with the one you downloaded from this site. Then run the setup file in the folder. The drivers i would recommend are 167.49 and 169.28 (seem to be working well for others). Remember to uninstall you old driver before installing the new one. You can create a system restore point before installing the driver to be on the safe side.

Please post your step by step on how you installed the driver, because I have the same video card and have installed multiple driver on my machine in my search for more performance and have had no crashes to this point. The high set of drivers I have installed are the 174.16 but experiencee slight warming of the GPU. I am currently running 167.58 drivers and hoping to find better ones.
