after i re-installed win7 ultimate sp3 my videos got pixelated...

hi i have a HP pavilion media center and i recently had to format my pc since i wasnt able to install anything on it and when i had to reinstall windows 7 now i cant seem to make my video card to work even my aero doesn't seem to work anymore. (everything is factory on my PC except for the ram which i upgraded from the standard 512) i want to ask if i can still fix this since on the website of HP for my unit they only have drivers for XP should i revert and just install windows xp on my pc or is there something else i can do this problem has been quite frustrating and it would help to get some suggestions...i have gone and tried to update my driver but win 7 keeps on saying that "standard VGA adapter" is the best diver for my video card...but i cant get my video smooth as it was yesterday...please HELP me.

Well this is a tough situation. Old laptops are the hardest to update properly due to the hardware having /extremely/ short driver maintenance lives ususaly, you can get the drivers for the original OS the laptop shipped with but nothing else 99% of the time.

But, you can get the video chip number from the computer specs or possibly form the hardware manager and look on line for a driver for it for Windows 7. May be another laptop manufacturer has had the same hardware in a newer laptop with a Windows 7 driver and you can get it from them, or if your REALLY lucky, from the chip manufacturer themselves.

If that utterly fails, you can go for broke and try installing the XP driver. Now this is generally BAD ADVICE as there is every chance that that will 1) not work at all or 2) wreck your windows 7 install, but since it's a new install, and if you have no other options, you won't have lost anything if you end up having to reinstall 7 or XP after it fails anyway :/
