I've done quite a bit of searching about and while this seems to be a common problem I can't find a solution that works! Would appreciate any help that can be provided.
I did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium and it's not recognising my graphics card which is a built in NVIDIA Geforce 7400 on my Sony Vaio (VGN-SZ48GN). In its place is listed 'Generic Non-PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter', which displays as 4:3 instead of widescreen. Very frustrating.
I have tried the following -
1) Getting the newest drivers
from NVIDIA - Does not complete install as Windows fails to recognise this is the hardware I have.
2) Uninstalling the display adapter in 'Device Manager' - Reinstalls the same generic card on reboot
3) Using the old drivers in Windows.old - Already says I have the best drivers for my device.
