Clean install windows 7 cant detect graphic card!

Hi guys, i've been struggeling for a while now with a clean install of windows 7.

First of all it was a pain to install all the drivers of the Dell recource dvd. But okay with most the drivers in place i was trying to look for my discrete onboard Nvidia Geforce 525m video card in device manager. But i just can NOT find it, not in hardware and devices or in the Device manager. I've searched hours and hours how to fix this but just cant seem to understand.

It does see the intel Family HD display adapter but nothing in the range of a nvdia or geforce. My motherboard has been replaced a while ago but at that time the Nvidia worked, it seems like computer forgot its total existence.

Any Suggestions? I'm feeling pretty fatigued about this right now.

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums ... You need to go to the Dell Website and Download the Drivers from there ...

The reason being the Drivers you have on the DVD are more than likely out of Date ...


Start with the Chipset Drivers ... Also Post your Model Number please ...


And we shall take things from there ...

Yes thats what i did after i installed the wifi ethernet and some basic drivers.

I entered my model number and updated all drivers i could from the dell website.

I have a dell inspiron N5110 with 6 gb ram and intel core i7 2,20hz.

Edit: Inspiron 15R N5110 is the model

If you have Installed both the Chipset Drivers and Rebooted ...

Then Go into your BIOS and see if the GPU is enabled ...

Been trying to get to understand how to do it, but you mean there are multiple chipset drivers?

Edit: including picture of system devices.

When you go into the Bios you need to go to the Advanced Tab to see if it is Enabled ...

You do have all the Chipset Drivers Installed ...


I have really bad eye sight and can not see your first Screenshot clearly ...

Hello KrmLaaz,

The information you are looking for could be in "Advanced -> Miscellaneous Devices".
Have you tried downloading and installing GeForce drivers from nVidia website directly?
If you try installing, the setup utility will give an error, saying there are no GeForce devices present or install successfully and it should appear in your device manager. Here is direct link to the latest driver for your card (64-bit version) http://uk.download.nvidia.com/Window...ional-whql.exe

Let us know of any results.
