Windows 7: Steam Unknown Video Card

Steam Unknown Video Card

I'm sure you know about the screen i'm talking about that says my video card is unknown in Steams database. I've never had this pop up before when i've been running steam and it's only when i'm playing Half Life 2, Portal or Team Fortress. I'm using a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550 on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

The screen that comes up says:

Your driver details
OS Version: Windows Vista
Description: Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator HD
Version: 7.14.1.6082

That's confusing me because i'm not running on Vista and i don't know what that Media Accelerator is.

Can someone help?

So i can just ignore it? Why hasn't it come up with this screen before? I've had Steam for about a month now :S

Maybe there was a Steam Update that triggered it
