Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file, as it will help us to understand the situation better.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Yes thats correct, I broke the VGA Port, then installed standard VGA card, (Cheaper option I believe)

Here is the file you requested,
MS.zip

Can you export is as a text file? Steps are almost same as above. Just a change in step 3. Do File > Export rather than File > Save.

Most probably the VGA adapter that you applied does not have a driver that is compatible with windows 7. It is being used as the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter, not any description of the vendor, and using the system native VGA/Super VGA Video Driver, c:\windows\system32\drivers\vgapnp.sys.

Can you apply a decent GPU there?

To be honest, I'm not to sure with that, The company who manufactured the graphics card, went bust some years ago so that is why no drivers can be found,
I may just buy a new graphics card, If i can find one what is compat with W7PRO, Only problem I have is that the slots are PCI not PCI Express, so need to be careful on which one I purchase,
By the screen shots I posted earlier, Do you recommend a reasonable priced GCard?

For future reference arc, right clicking on an "NFO" file and opening it with notepad or something similar will allow you to read it
