Windows 7: nVidia 8800GTX

02 Jul 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC (64 bit)
nVidia 8800GTX

Sorry but I am looking to get some help.

I had vista and upgraded to the RC.

I had the driver and everything working correctly on vista before upgrading.

Here is my problem:

In device manager under display adapters it says "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". Instead of my 8800. Anyone have any idea on what is wrong?
