4. Beta versions are BETA=TEST and many times MS leaves out specific items for testing.
5. MS has released a new Win7 Compatibility tester. recommend you DL it and run.
6. sometimes if you have your resolution set to hi, install will default to Std VGA as to insure you have a Display.
7. You might simply now open control panel --> system --> devices --> DELETE the VGA card - then reboot and see if Win7 will then install a different driver (due to resolution now being set lower).

I did 7 and it show me like I still have the Standard VGA..... its like the VGA was reinstall after I delete it.....

You might try installing the Drivers which came with the computer.
I'm having no luck with finding the correct drivers.
ABIT site is rather short on support. It directs me to NVidia.
or suggests this:

You could try here

Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

and see if it picks anything up

Based on your nVidia nForce2 chipset

Then I strongly recommend you dl and upgrade to the latest Pre-RTM version. Win7 7137. and since you have 7068 version you will have to modify the DL version. easy to do...
Download the ISO, extract with winrar or UltraISO.
open --> sources --> open cversion -->

then save. you can open with notepad.
Then you can either burn to DVD or simply click setup.exe. That will allow you to upgrade... if you do not want to upgrade, do not modify. Simply do a Clean install.

Personally i would do a clean install, that way you can guarantee you get the smoothest of installations (no bugs carried from previous build).

I'm one of those who "upgrade" all the time. 7000 was clean all the rest were UPgrades. All my installs/upgrades go smooth....

You're one of the lucky ones mate. There's always remnants on the previous install, which means that bugs could possibly be carried on too

Not 100% but it's still possible
