Windows 7: Nvidia GeForce 7400 card not working after installing Windows7 32 bit

Nvidia GeForce 7400 card not working after installing Windows7 32 bit

Hi,
I have a HP Pavillion dv6000 Laptop on which I originally had Windows Vista Home Basic 32 bit OS. It came installed with Nvidia GeForce go 7400 graphics card and worked fine. Vista eventually died and i upgraded the OS to Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit. Everything works fine but the Nvidia card is not getting detected and is not working. The system shows only 2 resolutions 1024x768 and 800x600 running on Standard VGA Adapter when i know it should have 1280x800 resolution and much better clarity.

I have tried everything. Installed NVIDIA Drivers 179.48 Beta and restarted machine, it installs but when i restart it crashes (blue screen) and keeps restarting in the loop unless i start up in Safe mode and uninstall the Nvidia driver.

I also tried installing NVIDIA Drivers 179.48 Beta and modify the .inf file by using Nvidia MobilityModder program. Again the same result.

I read some previous articles on this forum for this issue which worked for a sony vaio laptop and mine is HP but tried it anyway, installed driver and modded INF from this link

NVIDIA Forceware 197.25 Released - News - LaptopVideo2Go Forums

downloaded the driver + the inf file and inserted modified inf into the driver folder and run the setup.exe file. Restarted the machine but the same blue screen again.

No success and same result every time. Please help if someone knows a recent fix for this problem.

Thanks

That didn't work either. Downloaded and installed Vista 32 Nvidia driver from HP site in compatibility mode but again got a blue screen crash on restart
