Need Qosmio G25-AV513 Video Driver

I installed Windows Vista on my Qosmio G25-AV513 laptop.  Windows is using a generic NVIDIA driver.  As a result, I have lost the ability to use dual monitor.

Toshiba doesn't support Vista on this model.

NVIDA has a Vista driver for the GeForce Go 6600 which is what this laptop uses.  I downloaded the file (97.46_forceware_winvista_x86_international_whql.exe).  When I run it I get the message "The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware.  Setup will now exit.".

I need a better driver than what comes with Vista.

Does someone know where to find a better driver or a workaround to install NVIDIA's?
