But the really odd thing is, it keeps showing 2 display adapters (or whatever) on his 7 install, I have never seen that before.

Vis, did you ever run the W7 upgrade adviser on this laptop ?

I agree, but i wonder if that's because there is a Vista chipset driver and not a Win 7 chipset driver available.
Do you think the OP might need to try a force install of the Vista chipset driver first, then install the Vista video driver ?

IF i had this problem i would first try installing the Vista chipset driver to see if that makes a difference in what Display adapters are listed.
If that doesn't work, then i'd try installing Ultimate and see if that makes a difference.

EDIT:
Do you see any devices with errors in Win 7 Device Manager ?

Installing Ultimate will make no difference, it`s the same thing. What do you have keys just laying around ? I`d love a Windows 7 Ultimate key

But you could try a fresh clean install, make sure you wipe the entire drive to unallocated space, unless you have a data partition, don`t touch that, but format the install partition, then install windows. You have to install the version you have an activation key for. You do not have to activate windows yet though, you have 30 days to do that. Let`s get this problem fixed 1st.

Kitty says we can do it !!

Viz, the UA does not specifically tell you which version you can update to, if your laptop only supports 4 GB of memory, which you really need to have installed (at least) then just install Home Premium Service Pack 1, there is no need to install Ultimate. And I don`t care what anyone says, you have a 64 bit capable cpu, so install 64 bit.

3 GB of memory is a crazy amount to have installed, you need to have 2 2GB sticks installed of the same brand and speed. ( it will come in a kit of 2 x 2GB sticks ) do not buy it any other way.

This is the speed and size you should have installed:

Standard Memory 2 GB
Maximum Memory 4 GB
Memory Technology DDR2 SDRAM
Memory Standard DDR2-667/PC2-5300
Number of Total Memory Slots 2

So that means 2 x 2GB sticks for a total of 4 GB

I hate this tool but scan your PC with it, it will give us the facts on the memory we can install.

Crucial.com - Crucial System Scanner

I personally hate Kingston memory, but this is what you need.

After all this is said and done you need to get rid of that 5400 rpm hard drive and get this.

SSD 850 EVO 2.5" SATA III 250GB | Samsung Solid State Drives

You have a decent CPU, get the memory up to 4 GB, then install windows on the ssd and you`ll be a happy camper for a long while.

And in my opinion PNY is much better then Kingston, I have used PNY and it was flawless.

I don't think seeing 2 graphics adapters is the problem. That's normal for some Intel Chipset Families - must include your too. Intel explains
Device Manager Showing Two Different Graphics Controllers

Have you tried in Intel Driver Update tool?

/* EDIT */
Not sure why you only saw one with an older Windows OS but could only guess it was driver implementation. But seeing 2 in Windows 7 is not uncommon

OK, what do you think of the information that's missing from the lower one here,

That was taken from his msinfo32.nfo in his BSOD thread.
