In order to find the correct driver, we can use one of the models listed on the list of HP Products that uses P/N 5188-8905. I choose "HP Media Center m8150tr home PC (EMEA)".

Two graphics drivers returned. One is NVIDIA Unified Graphics Driver Update and the other one is Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1800 TV Tuner Driver Update. Obviously the correct one is from NVidia. However the NVIDIA Unified driver is dated back to year 2008!. It is abit outdated and I would rather try to download the latest Unified graphic driver from NVIDIA website instead.
