Toshiba Satellite A200 by Lonehwolf
Hi there, I have a laptop, had it for about 9 months now, and I guess it's time to update my graphics driver. I can't play Gears of War without doing so. Nvidia don't seem to support my graphic card: NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 / Generic PnP Monitor. 64-bit G72 (A3,4pp,3vp) with 256MB DDR2. That's what RivaTuner Gave me regarding my graphic card.
