Windows 7: Standard VGA Adapter

17 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC1 32-bit
Standard VGA Adapter

I just installed Windows 7 RC1 32-bit OS onto my laptop. Without thinking i needed any drivers, i went to play World of Warcraft. It told me that it could not locate a display device and wouldn't work. I figured i needed to install my grpahics card drivers for my Nvidia 9 series card. When i went to install the drivers, an error message appeared saying that it could not locate drivers compatible with my device. I went to dxdiag and under display it shows that i have a standard vga adapter and won't recognize my actual graphics card. I'm not sure if i'm missing drivers, i haven't installed anything else except for this attempt at installing the nvidia driver. Please assist, thank you.

Great, Windows Update seems to have worked. Everything is running as intended and all updates have been made. Thank you very much for your help.

Hi yall,

i have got the exact same problem,
but in my case Windows Update isn't
giving me a solution.

I have got a Sony Vaio AR51SU with
a NVIDIA 8600M GT-card.

Any tips?
