Win 7 not recognizing Graphics Card or Monitor
Hello new to the forum have used tips from searches before that have been very helpful thank you.
To wits end I am stumped after installing a new SSD HD today and clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit OS.
The problem I am having is that in device manager under Display Adapters it list Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. Also for Monitors it Lists Generic PnP Monitor.
I have downloaded and updated the latest drivers for each hardware and a I am still getting the same result.
This is frustrating since I could not image my old version of Windows 7 from a larger,slower HD to the new/faster SSD HD. Windows 7 imaging suggests that the new HD must be larger than the old HD in order to do an image restore.
I have read this is not the case however found that in no way have I been able to successfully image restore my old OS from the larger HD to the new smaller SSD HD.
In that version of the OS everything worked well. I am stumped trying nearly all of today - really more like 4 - 5 hours but am frustrated.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
Thanks in advance.

But anyway, whatever you read that said you could migrate a larger partition to a drive too small to hold it was incorrect.
There are utilities out that that will help you "migrate" from an HDD to a smaller SSD, but they put up a screen allowing you to select the types of files that are NOT going to be migrated -- and you have to keep doing that until the resulting image size is small enough to fit on the SSD. Perhaps this is what you were thinking about.
