Windows 7: Not Recognizing GFX card

Not Recognizing GFX card

So I usually don't pay any attention to windows notifications but I realized now that windows isn't recognizing my GPU. I checked device manager and it looks like it's installed correctly.

Windows gave me a link to download drivers but it was the 32bit version. I thought this was strange considering I'm on 64bit - No idea how relevant this is.

If you bought the computer prebuilt, download them from your manufacturers site.

Windows 7

It's a prebuilt system that I added a GPU to.

I downloaded and installed the new drivers but It's still telling me that I'm missing them.
