As reported on other forums, my graphics display is malfunctioning. The diagnostic report from Microsoft recommends me to try updating the NVIDIA driver. However, I am being led to the opinion that it is now obsolete. I have a Toshiba Satellite Model No. PS5102 - OONUH. It is now almost seven years old. I completely replaced the keyboard, hard - drive, screen backlights and DVD/CD drive. It is serving me but has many annoying system issues which I am trying to find and fix. I'm a bit:confused: like Wallee, I suppose.

However, can anyone tell me where to find an update? The driver title is here:

Adapter Description NVIDIA GeForce4 440 Go (Microsoft Corporation) Name NVIDIA GeForce4 440 Go (Microsoft Corporation)
PNP Device ID PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0174&SUBSYS_00011179&REV_A3\4&2EEAE0A0&0&0008
Adapter Type GeForce4 440 Go, NVIDIA compatible
Adapter Description NVIDIA GeForce4 440 Go (Microsoft Corporation)
Adapter RAM 32.00 MB (33,554,432 bytes)
Installed Drivers nv4_disp.dll
Driver Version 6.14.10.5673
INF File nvts.inf (nv4_NV17_WinXP section)
Color Planes 1
Color Table Entries 4294967296
Resolution 1024 x 768 x 60 hertz
Bits/Pixel 32
Memory Address 0xFD000000-0xFDFFFFFF
Memory Address 0xD8000000-0xDFFFFFFF
Memory Address 0xD7F80000-0xD7FFFFFF
IRQ Channel IRQ 5
I/O Port 0x000003B0-0x000003BB
I/O Port 0x000003C0-0x000003DF
Memory Address 0xA0000-0xBFFFF
Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\nv4_mini.sys (6.14.10.5673, 1.81 MB (1,897,408 bytes), 6/15/2007 1:20 AM)

Obviously there may be industry people out there who know these codes.

My computer works better since I uninstalled Java programmes which were connected to 'Active X'. But there is still a driver problem there and I wish to repair it.

Nvidia does not supply mobile graphics drivers to the public, they must be downloaded from the PC manufacturer website.

or search for them on this site using your PNP Device ID using your PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_ and SUBSYS_ numbers

http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/drivers

So you enter 0174 in the PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_ box

and 00011179 in the &SUBSYS_ box

choose your OS, then hit the Filter button

PNP Device ID PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0174&SUBSYS_00011179&REV_A3\4&2EEAE0A0&0&0008

Yes, I tried to work through the diagnostic wizard provided by Microsoft.Thank you for that helpful link. I have already visited the NVIDIA site but their browser could not locate a driver.

I will try the alternative search method you indicate.
