Windows 7: Integrated Graphics Card Not Recognized

Integrated Graphics Card Not Recognized

The computer I'm using is an HP Pavilion a720n. I've never really seen the need to upgrade, so it's using the came-with I believe 56MB Integrated Graphics Card.

The problem is that the Windows 7 Beta (public version) doesn't seem to recognize the integrated graphics card, and when I check DXDiag, instead shows me "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter", which I assume is it telling me that I have no graphics card, but a slot for one.

It was working fine with XP, though. Anybody know how to fix this?

Via/S3G UniChrome IGP Driver Update*

You cold try it in compatibility mode, but I doubt it'll work.

Thanks for the link, but after I try to install it it says "Update is not applicable for this PC.", which I assume means that it won't install in Windows 7.

I'd try to run it in Compatability Mode, but for some reason -anything- I try to run in Compatability mode makes it give me the "___ has stopped working, looking for a solution" error.

You could try unpacking the install files and manually installing the INF but again; long shot. It's really old and it doesn't look like they even bothered to update the drivers.
