Default HP Pavilion dv9420us for gaming?

I made a noob mistake and i tried to download xp to it before i went on the net and got the drivers, but ATM im waiting for an vista recovery disc. I tried to download age of empires 3 and it says my laptop is running a vid card of 0 mb's. could this be due to the vista to xp change without getting the drivers?

also, when i do get the vista back on and the drivers, would i be able to play WoW?

some specifics about my computer are
AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-64 and 512KB+512KB L2 Cache (2.2 GHz)

2048 MB Ram

nVidia GeForce Go 6150 video graphics (with shared video memory) <- this is what im worried about, i havent heard good things.

any info would be greaty appreciated

Its probably a drive issue and that the computer in reality isn't worn in(used). Once you get Vista on it, with all the drivers and updates, it should be able to handle WoW.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
