Windows 7 graphics card problem. Please help

Hello my name is Dani and I had purchased an HP Pavilion Dv6000 Laptop and factory it was running Windows Vista Home Premium (32Bit). The Laptop crashed and upon reboot I no longer had an OS. I obtained a copy of Windows 7 Professional (64Bit). I installed it and everything went normal during installation. Upon exploring 7 a bit, I realized that I couldn't apply the 'aero' effects, and when I was running Vista it did. After some troubleshooting i get a message along the lines of "your graphics card does not support the 'aero' effects. I also cannot run games and emulators because it says "Direct3D failed to initialize" and none of the video plugins are compatible with my graphics card. i do not have internet on the computer with this problem so i can't auto update the driver. i know i need to find a driver update and i have online access on both my PC's but i dont know where to look or how to go about it. i dont remember what graphics card driver was installed on the factory system running Vista32, but now (with Win7) it just shows it as 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter'. Please help me with getting the proper driver for this and fixing this problem. Sorry for writing so much >_<

Welcome to Seven Forums their are so many models of the DV6000 first off we could use the addition letters following the DV6000 Product search results Then we can get a more accurate list of drivers available for your system as well as what graphics card you are running. Thanks. Fabe
