That is fine - update your driver including the chipset. Try running in compatibility mode and as admin - try Vista SP1 first and then XP SP2. Update DirectX too.

I have found an alternate solution for those of you having trouble with windows 7, install virtual machine which runs the actual windows xp in a window, its from microsoft and you should be problem free.

Oh you have found this solution? Talking about the XP mode? Its been advertised everywhere online... Hardly anything new, and hardly problem-free since it doesnt work with all processors.

If you buy Win 7 pro -> you'll get to download This and, this is not a compatibilty mode. If youre not talking about this, I appologize.

That could be the same thing, i was given it on a disk when i queried MS and they sent it to me and i don't want to waste downloads checking if it is.

It probably is the same then. Use it? Also, since when was youre score reduced by 4?
It could be thats you've been swiched to intergrated/secound graphics card. Go to ctrl panel -> system and security -> system -> WEI -> view detailed info. Is the graphics card model correct?
