Hi and welcome to sevem forums

First thing take a deep breath. We can figure it out. The reason you computer is saying standard VGA is because you need to install a driver for your card. drivers can be found here The NVIDIA® GeForce® G105M GPU turns up your notebook?s visual experience. go download the driver for your system and install it

Hope this helps

I have the same problem as the original poster, but nothing is working. I'm so frustrated. I'm ready to switch to MAC for crying out loud. I went to nVidia and downloaded the driver for my graphics card, and after it finished installing, it simply returned an error message stating that I didn't have the card or something. Sigh....

Sigh...thanks, but I just bought my latest computer less than a month ago, maybe next time.

I've been to the nVidia site, unfortunately they won't let you download drivers if your card was already installed in a computer you purchased (I tried and the stupid thing downloaded some ION driver that had nothing to do with my actual system). Then I went to the ASUS site and their list doesn't have a single one of the GeForce cards listed! (Unless they're in secret code or something, are there alternate names for GeForce cards?), it's just a simple GeForce GTX 260M.

Oh there are a zillion programs out there that supposedly will look for and update all of your drivers, for a price. This just really gives me the GRRRRRRR

Right click your card in the device manager. Properties. Details tab. Change dropdown to hardware ids. Copy and paste results to here. I'll make you a custom solution.

I have something similar to this issue.
I have a Dell Optiplex 745 at work. the recently "upgraded" me from XP to Windows 7.
Once everything was updated I found that windows 7 no longer recognized my PCI card .. AT ALL .. would not even recognize that it was plugged into the mother board. It's a VisionTek 2400 pro. I went to visionTek and got the Vista drivers, thinking this would help but to no avail. It shows the card now but says it's can't load the drivers (code 31) nothing I've tried will make this work. I do have the PCI-e card working it's a Radeon X1550. I've tried removing the PCI-e card to see if that was blocking it somehow. I've got the video card on the MB disabled. I'm just at a loss for what to do next.

Nothing you can do. One card uses WDDM 1.0 model, the other WDDM 1.1.

They can not work well in the same Windows 7 system. You could try hacking the installer .inf to make both cards use the latest driver and WDDM 1.1 model. Then you'd have a decent chance of success.

You'd have to install then, for both cards, manually using the device manager. Best if done in safe mode.

hehe .. Greek ..
So which one is 1.1 .. the X1550?
What would one need to do, to hack the inf?
I dont mind having to install both from the "Add Legacy Device" portion of Device Manager.

Sorry the PCI card is a visiontek radeon hd 2400 pro.
the pci-e card is the radeon x1550
