    Weird to see some people cannot install Windows 10 in some of these situations. It doesn't make sense, because I've installed it on a several computers without any problems with the OS itself, and even on one very old Alienware laptop I have, with only a Pentium 4 and a Nvidia 6800 Go.

    The only problem I'm having now is getting the 6800 Go to work on the laptop. I might try this driver listed here, hopefully it might work. I've been running circles trying to get the 6800 Go to work again like it did in Windows 8.1. I don't understand why these drivers are not available through Windows 10 update, but they were in 8.1.

    I have Windows 10 in a Acer Aspire 5610Z. This notebook also has Geforce Go 7300.
    I was trying latest driver from Nvidia site (march 2009). It seems ok, but I at every shutting down i've had blue screen.

    Today I found this topic: Win 10 doesnt install due my Nvidia GeForce Go 7300 - can it be sorted? | Windows 10 Forums
    Someone posted there 307.68 drivers (december 2012), which are working in 100% with 7300 Go.
    Thank you so much for posting this. I was literally at my wits end and the problems seemed endless. I figured I'd have to wait for Window 10 to get this update eventually since I knew the only drivers that I had known to work for my older laptop GPU, the 6800 Go, were the ones provided through Windows Update in 7/8.1.

    You have no idea how happy you've made me. I've been tinkering with this laptop for four days straight, and I did so many ridiculous things to solve such a simple problem.

    I really wish I knew where or how they find these drivers from Windows Update, but I'm very thankful that they did.

    I wonder if that driver could be used on a Win 7 machine; and would that unit now be eligible for a Win 10 upgrade ?
    (GeForce 7300 LE on a Win 7 pc.)
    I have a Dell E1505/6400 with Nvidia Go 7300 that was successfully upgraded using the tool at

    The upgrade installs a generic MS driver which must be replaced for better screen resolution. I am using the Windows 7 driver from the NVidia website.

    Suggestion: Disable the Conexant HDA D110 MDC V.92 Modem (dialup) before and after upgrade curing a BSOD at shutdown/restart/sleep

    I have windows 10 pro x64 installed on a toshiba A200-10W laptop which also has the geforce go 7300. Here's what I did to install it. Since I had the nvidia 179.48 driver saved on a hard disk for windows 7 x64 (the link for the 179.48 driver is this:, I right clicked on the file and selected properties. Then compatibility mode and chose windows 7 and Run as Administrator (Maybe that's not needed but it does no harm). Then I double clicked on the file. Setup starts but it fails to continue because the system says the driver is incompatible. The thing here is that the driver is now exported into C. After that, I right clicked on This PC and selected manage. In the device manager I expanded Display Adapters and right clicked on the microsoft basic adapter and selected update driver software. Then I selected Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer and after that browse. Go to C, NVIDIA, WinVista64, 179.48, IS, Display and when you get into this folder you 'll see that the driver is selected so just press open. If it's not, select the NVAA.INF file and then open. You will see that in the list of drivers the gefoce go 7300 is an option. Select it, install it, enjoy. Hope I helped!

    Installed this on my Dell E1505 with Go 7300 replacing 179.48 drivers. Working for me.
