Graphic Card

I just installed Windows 7 Home Premium on a new 500GIG drive and it does not recognize my graphics adapters. I have tried 4 different cards and all i get is the standard vga adapter.

See attachment for sys info.

What can I do to get this system to recognize the adapters.

You need to install the drivers for your video card from the manufacturers site.

I went to the web sites of all my cards and none have drivers for 7 or vista. I guess it is time to upgrade the graphics card and or the PC..

Thanks for your replies.

Sometimes XP drivers will work fine in 7. Several experts on this site will attest to using XP drivers with no problem.
