Windows 7: graphics card issues with windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

graphics card issues with windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

I just got windows 7 64-bit ultimate edition for my laptop, and I notice that it does not read my graphics card. The graphics card I have is the nvidia 8800 gts for my sony vaio laptop (model vgn-fz283bn). My computer was working correctly with it when I had windows vista business 32- bit, but for some reason it is not showing on windows 7 64 bit version. When I look at the graphics card I have (in the hardware tab) it said I had the standard vga adapter, when I actually have the nvidia. Please help me with this issue so I can get my nvidia operating with the computer.

Thank You

You need to download and install the latest driver for your video card. Windows 7 couldn't detect what type of card it was or didn't have a compatible driver on the disk for it.

Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1

Have you tried the drivers directly from nVidia?


(These are supposed to support the 8800M GTS. The M stands for Mobile, as in notebook.)

I suggest these because Sony has no Windows 7 drivers for your notebook at their web site. If the nVidia drivers above can't recognize your graphics device, I suggest trying the Vista drivers:

Sony eSupport - VGN-FZ283BN - Software Updates & Drivers

If those install successfully, try installing the nVidia drivers (above) over them. I had to do something like that with my Compaq notebook, nVidia 8200M graphics.
