Not vista compatible


Recommended Posts

I found out that the driver nVidia LAN 6565 is meant for Vista only.

I just installed windows xp pro on my laptop Packard Bell Easy Note Sj51 and suddenly my network driver stops working.

After hours of searching I am not able to find a compatible driver for my network card.

After calling Packard Bell support, I am told that they don't know if any of these drivers are ever made for xp (only vista compatible).

Can some kind people please help me with this? I also posted a question on the nVision homepage, and the only thing I got from this, was that they told me that they made drivers espescially for each computer-manufacturer, and then reffered me to this forum.

Is the nVidia LAN 6565 only vista compatible, and not XP?

Thank you for any answers.

Start with finding out what chipset (LAN) it uses, may need to do some googling.
