Windows 7: Solution for GeForce FX 5500 with Win7

Solution for GeForce FX 5500 with Win7

DELL 2007FWP & GeForce FX 5500
with Windows 7

This has been a quest!
I don't know how long this will last, but after 2 days of struggle I finally have my monitor's native resolution of 1680 x 1050 back. Turn's out (of course) that my display card is way out of date and there are no Windows 7 drivers only Vista and those are very erratic. Finally did find a workaround with a 2 part approach:


Drive Cleaner Pro (for free) from: - FTP Mirror Search (Downloads)
which removes all traces of the old drivers

Use this driver:

Extract the driver but cancel the install

Then run

Mobility Modder from:
NVIDIA MobilityModder -

which modifies the older driver

Then install the driver, and viola!

So we'll see how it goes...

You can also use the newer forceware 158.18 & 163.11 drivers as per here. It's surprising how well older gear runs Windows 7 Aero, even with only WDDM 1.0 support.
