Windows 7: Win7 Not Recognizing my Graphics Card?

Win7 Not Recognizing my Graphics Card?

I previously had 32-bit Windows 7 RC (7100) installed on my laptop. Aero and all visual effects worked perfectly. I recently installed 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium, now I can't do any effects. Here are some reasons why I feel that my card is not being recognized:
DXDIAG:


WINDOWS PERFORMANCE INDEX:


Can anyone help me get my graphics card working? (Also I don't know my exact chip model since dxdiag won't tell me )

Thanks

You still have the VGA driver installed. Install the latest Nvidia Windows 7 driver.

You don't need to know the chipset, only the model of the card.

EDIT: I have never used it, but if you don't know which card that you have, there is a button below the other windows to have them scan it for you.

The scan button doesn't work for Windows 7... And when I just chose a random card to download from, this happened:


It seemed to be a driver that would work on any chip too -- the installer is called 195.62_desktop_win7_winvista_english_whql.exe

(also thanks for your help so far seekermeister)

EDIT: I'm trying another random driver (this time a notebook one considering that I am on a notebook)
EDIT2: Working now thanks
