No problem. Please post back when you download the drivers from my previous post.

If that doesn't work, perhaps it would be a good idea to update Bootcamp, unless you're already on the most recent version.

Anyways You said you downloaded the Graphics Driver, the mainboard graphics may still be active, can you please go to device manager, and check display adapters.
1)To do so please press
2) Type in Device Manager
3) open the correct one Look at my picture attachment Number 1
4)Now click on display adapters #see attachment number 2
5) Take a picture and upload it please #if you need help taking a screen-shot read this Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

No errors, it's installing properly, but it continues to show as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

That's odd,
I do not quite know how Bootcamp functions. I do know that update 3.2 did bug fixes related to the same graphics card you have.

What version of bootcamp are you on? Any chance you can update it?

I have the Bootcamp 3.2. I'm trying some other things through Bootcamp, do you have other advice.

I'm working on getting the Windows 7 side up to 3.2. You have to install each update sequentially so it takes some time. The Snow Leopard side is 3.2 though.

Good luck please let me know once the process is finish and if any changes occur.
My other advice is a Search

Other people have reported similar problems and it does seem to point at it being a Boot Camp issue
