Windows 7: Problem with Aero/resolution (ATI Radeon 3600)

Problem with Aero/resolution (ATI Radeon 3600)

I have googled for hours and not found an answer to this problem so I'm trying my luck here instead...

I recently installed W7 32bt, but the aero effects don't work and the resolution... well, sucks. I have an ATI Radeon 3600-something graphics card. But under Device Manager it says I only have a "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". Why doesn't it find my card?

I tried installing the new driver updates for W7 on AMD but nothing happened. Is my card too old for W7? Or is there anything I can do?

Thanks in advance!

Oh, now I actually solved the problem myself! Haha

Well, if anyone else wants to know, I downloaded something called hotfix for my graphics card from the sapphiretech website. Now aero works fine and resolution too

Thanks anyway!
