Windows 7: Windows 7 & not installing Graphics Card

1 other option may be to remove the device from Device Manager by right-clicking and selecting 'Uninstall Device'. This will force Windows to use the 'Standard VGA Adaptor' but may clear any drive issues that may be causing the card not to be detected properly. You will then need to reboot, and in Device Manager try right clicking then 'Update Software driver' again.
