Welcome to Bleepingcomputer!

Hopefully we can help you out here.

In chip you are talking about an add-in video card correct?

As I wait for a reply, I am going to grab a copy of your HP pavilion a1630n owners manual so we can be on the same page here.

The only thing I'm seeing about geforce is your chipset Chipset GeForce 6150 LE.

However the part where the graphics card is mentioned, all it says is integrated graphics. Nothing else.

You can check out that info at this link. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...product=3245027

This link below will bring you to your computers main support web page at Hewlett Packard, it has everything you need including drivers and manuals.
