Hi qwert123 and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

I think that you are getting a bit confused. Your ATI Radeon is your graphics card, and Windows 7 (and other versions of Windows) will only detect your monitor as Generic PnP if you haven't installed the driver specific to your monitor. This is what I see in Device Manager (note that I have NVidia and that I have installed the monitor driver):

What does this show on your system?

Hi,

I'm also experiencing the same problem.

I've just installed Windows 7 32bit on a different partition of my hard drive. For your information I have a dell Inspiron 6400 Dual Core 1.73Gh, with 1,5 Gb Ram and an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 256mb. The device manager does not detect the card on the mobo. On the display adapter it says STANDARD VGA ADAPTER and NOT Ati X1400.
I tried to disable the VGA adapter but it still does recognize the ATI GPU.
On my other partition running XP Pro, everything is running smoothly.

I would be grateful for a tip on how to solve this.

Thanks people!

I just did this yesterday using the Dell Vista driver for the X1400. It was not on a Dell machine, but I used the Dell driver. You have to force Windows to install the right driver. Go into Device Manager, or through Advanced Setting in the display setting applet to get to the display adapter driver. Press Update Driver and choose that you want to select the driver yourself. It will show only the VGA as compatible. Uncheck the box that says Show Compatible Only and you will then be able to navigate to the X1400 driver. If I remember, there was two identical entries. I chose the first one. Ignore the warning that this driver is not compatible, and press some OKs. After rebooting, you'll have the right driver. Mine gave a decent WEI for graphics and gaming - more than enough to run Aero and play HDTV smoothly.

Bye.

Similar problem

Hi,

I've got the exact same issue as Damocrian, however I have the Radeon Xpress 200m graphics chipset which for some reason isn't in the manual install list of ATI drivers, so can't even install it manually. Any ideas???

Thanks!

Hi Sticketystick,

What are your computer specs? AMD 64 or 32 bit?

If I understand your problem you can't find the right driver right?

Try googling it on other sites than ATI, I'll do the same but i just need your specs.

A thing to keep in mind is that from 9.3 up, legacy support was removed so older products won't be supported anymore.

Last legacy supported driver is Catalyst 9.2. But there's also the ini hacks... which I won't go into detail.

Also to answer qwert123's "7 is only detecting Generic PnP monitor..." issue... sometimes, the monitor detection doesn't work properly. The 780G that I have did that once in a while... right click on the PnP entry and Scan for new hardware might do the trick. If it's not, it might be actual hardware failure.

Thanks Crunchy. This solved my problem - mostly. My graphics card is no longer defaulting to VGA. I now get 1280 x 800.

But when I run Windows Experience Index I only get a 1.0 on "Gaming Graphics" -- it says "Not Detected". And I only get a 1.9 on "Graphics". Under the details section it says "Total available graphics memory -> Not detected" and also shows 0 MB dedicated graphics memory, 0 MB dedicated system memory, and 0 MB shared system memory.

Now I know my laptop is a bit aged - 5 year old Compaq x1000 with a ATI Radeon Mobility 9200 (I think it has 64 mb dedicated graphics memory). So I expected a somewhat low score but not a 1.0 and did not expect it wouldn't detect any graphics memory.

Any thoughts on why it wouldn't see my graphics memory / why I'm only getting a score of 1.0? Any help is appreciated!
