Windows 7 - Photoshop incompatible

Hi
I have a problem with windows 7 and I'll be happy if anyone could help me with it.
In windows XP with my nVidia 9500 GT Graphic Card I could use 3D features in photoshop cs5 with hardware acceleration (I say it because until I moved to Windows Se7en, I never had messages saying I don't have the Hardware 3D accelerator.) But now, Photoshop uses software accelerator. Also I cannot use OpenGL features of photoshop since I have known them, so, although I know this is not relevant to this part of forum, but I'll be grateful if anyone knows if my Graphic Card supports OpenGL and I should just update to new driver.
thanks again.

Yes it had OpenGL. I had that card, and FurMark (which uses OpenGL) ran fine.

Have you installed drivers?

I have installed driver, but because of low speed connections in my country, I haven't updated it ever. I've bought my Video Card just this last year, year 2009 and just before Christmas. But still it is possible that it be not updated.
Then you say, the last driver solves it isn't it?
