upgraded to Windows 7 now projector isn't recognized

I have lost a lot of drivers too in the upgrade and am not really sure if I need to download any additional drivers besides the ones I have already downloaded. I downloaded all the drivers listed on the Acer website for my computer, but I have not downloaded the BIOS. Should I do that too? Would that fix the problem?

Thanks for the help

Welcome!

A BIOS update probably won't solve this problem, so don't take the risk of bricking your mobo if the update goes wrong.

Try using Speccy or SIW to identify your video card. Then go to nVidia.com and download the latest drivers for your card there.

thanks Jonathan!

I downloaded a driver from nVidia and it works perfectly now.
