Windows 7: Any Chance of a little help? =)

Any Chance of a little help? =)

Hey people just stuck with 1 little problem.

iv got windows 7 profesional on my nice old laptop (Fajitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V2055) laptop, yes i know its about 5 years old, but it runs 7 amazingly

but the 1 problem i have is with my graphics card driver, it is saying that it is not updated to work with all the aero settings that come with Pro, so i was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction of finding a driver, yes iv looked high and low on the internet for it but lets face it, half of what you search for on google is well, inapppropriate.

But my Graphics Card is;

Name: Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
Manufacturer: (Standard Display Types)
Chip Type: VIA P4N800
DAC Type: 8 bit
Approx. Total Memory n/a
Current Display Mode: 1280 x 800 (32 bit) (1Hz)
Monitor: Generic Non-PnP Monitor

Drivers:
Main Driver: vga
Version: 6.1.7600.16385
Date: 13/07/2009
WHQL Logo'd: Yes
DDI Version: Unknown
Driver Model: Unknown

DirectX Features
DirectDraw Acceleration: Not Available
Direct3D Acceleration: Not Available
AGP Texture Acceleration: Not Available



Yes i know its not the greatest card/laptop but its just used for casual use and my college work. so if anyone could help me find a driver it would be much appreacated.


PS.
I have no other problems what so ever with windows 7 on this old machine, all other drivers were found and installed perfectly!


Thanks

If your video memory is not at least 256mb, does not support dicrectX 9.0 or use pixelshader 2.0 or greater, you will not be able to enable the aero effects in Windows 7... changing the driver will not help...

If this is your laptop:

Fujitsu AMILO Pro V2055 Edition - Specifications

try this driver:

Download Via CN700 UniChrome Pro Driver 22.00.01U WHQL Driver for Windows 9X/ME/NT/2K/XP/2003/Vista/XP X64/2008 - Softpedia

install it in safe mode and create a restore point. I would be looking at a new laptop though.
