Hey guys, I'll preface this by saying I have an iMac Snow Leopard with a high end graphics card, but for gaming purposes I partitioned a Windows Vista to play a few video games. If you don't know what this is it means it runs just like Vista but on a iMac screen.
This worked well (for gaming) the past few years, but in order to advance my system I installed a Windows 7 32-bit over the Vista. As you know this means I have to reinstall (and replay) my games. There was no problem installing these older games such as Far Cry 2 and MW3, but once they install the games won't launch and begin like they did on Vista, I can hear the computer make noise like it's about to run but nothing happens.
I already did the standard driver
updates for my graphics card, ATI Radeon HD 5750
, and I updated to the latest Bootcamp, but still no success.
When I did some troubleshooting I saw that the Windows 7 side of my computer lists my graphics card as a Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
no matter what I do it stays listed as that.
I believe the problem is linked to the graphics card being Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
. Is there anyone who knows how to get the Windows 7 side of my computer to recognize my ATI Radeon HD 5750
Despite this I am still extremely pleased with my Windows 7 in every other aspect, but gaming is the main reason I have it so being able to launch games is really the only thing I NEED the Windows 7 32-bit to do.
Is there anyone who can help me resolve this problem? Thank you.
