    We learn by asking questions.

    The 175.19 in the info you provided is the version number of your driver set. 191.09 is the latest version.
    It was released on October 5, 2009. Your model number is a different thing entirely.

    To determine your model number download and run this little utility.

    techPowerUp! :: Download TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.3.5

    When you have downloaded it click or double click on it (however you have your mouse setup) and run it. It doesn't need installing just run it. It will give you all kinds of information about you graphics processor card.
    Compare the model number of your GPU against the model numbers listed below.

    The numbers are taken from the web site that the new drivers are located.
    As you can see the list covers almost the entire Nvidia GPU product line.

    You are right that the 175.19 version is for XP.

    BTW, these are WHQL drivers, supported by Microsoft and should be available through Windows Update.
    If not download the drivers and manually install them.
