Geforce go 7400 sony vaio problem

Hi Guys,

Just installed windows 7 home premium edition over XP as a clean install. Now my nvidia ge force go 7400 has disappeard and reverted back to the VGA card. I've tried finding the appropriate windows 7 driver from nvidia but the website says it doesn't support sony vaios, and how would i install the driver anyway if the card cannot be found? Need help?

Thanks in advance

Download the driver to your desktop... goto device manager video adapter update driver.. point to the driver on your desktop and install.. reoot if necessary.... Let us know if this helped...

Thanks, did what you said and the nvidia driver has succesfully installed over the VGA, however windows then detected a problem and crashed. It reported that the video card doesn't support the required version of DirectX and this version of Windows requires a video card that supports DirectX 9.0 or newer. I thought my card did support that already though?

When you say crash, do you mean a BSOD?? If so, navigate to c:/windows/minidump, zip up the .dmp file and attach it to your next post for analysis.....

Wow, some of those are old! Some could possibly be malware.

Those files are definitely left over from an upgrade... not a clean install... follow torrentgs' advice ... if that doesnt work, use a third party app to completely wipe your drive and then reinstall windows 7...

Cheers i'll have a go, so just to clarify in this case i would need to download the nvidia geforce 7 driver for windows 7 not the geforce go 7 for notebooks? Also how do i remove the above files from my system? Sorry for all the questions!
