Windows 7: Graphics card driver installed, but cant use it??

14 Aug 2009   #11

windows 7 64 bit and dual boot Pinguyos

Ichey103, I have not used that card for a while, but it used to work with an older driver set, even aero worked. That was using the original windows 7 7000 beta OS.

This sounds like a good candidate for XP mode

I would recommend that you try running it in XP mode and if that works then you will probably need to get Win7 Professional or Ultimate....or maybe you might want to upgrade your card. A decent 8600gt 512mb is going for around $50 these days, a 9800gt 512mb is about $99 and the 9800gt is DX10 compatible.
