Windows 7: Standard VGA Adapter, Sigh

Standard VGA Adapter, Sigh

Hi everyone,

I cruised around the forum trying to find a solution that worked for me but I couldn't. Here's the situation:

I formatted this computer (was running Vista) and installed 7 (x64). But now 7 isn't detecting my video card properly.

I've tried running EVEREST and so on, but haven't gained any hints that way. It's an onboard videocard and I can't make out any identifying characteristics that have been helpful so far. I've tried updating the motherboard but obviously that wasn't any help.

Now, I originally updated this beast from XP to Vista and recall having a similar problem. Somehow I figured out the card required a driver from Chrome (Welcome to S3 Graphics - Create world-class graphics and video cores).

I tried installing the 500 series driver for 7x64 but it doesn't seem to have taken. I fiddled with device manager but it is refusing to change from Standard VGA Adapter. I tried installing the 400 series but it gave me a hardware error which suggests I was on the money for it being 500.

Is there a way to force device manager to accept the 500 series driver? It didn't give me an error or anything and I'm pretty sure it's what I want -- positive, even.

I've included a pic of the inside of the computer (kind of useless?) and can attach an EVEREST diagnosis if anyone likes.

thanks,
James

In your forum user interface, there is a section for entering your system specifications;



This makes it much easier for anybody giving you advice to find out what you are using.

If you fill those specs in, then somebody might be able to help you.

You can use Everest, or Speccy ;

Speccy - System Information - Free Download

to find your system specs.

PooMan: THANK YOU. I've been to the site before, but every time I selected my OS as "Other" instead of Windows 7. I downloaded the Vista x64 drivers, ran in compatability mode, and now everything's perfect. I don't know what I was thinking or doing beforehand because the second I tried Windows Vista the whole plan kind of formed in my head. Thanks again

Mike: The computer I'm troubleshooting isn't my main computer so I didn't see much need for that. Thanks for the advice though, I'll be sure to update my profile with my main computer's specs soon (or before the next problem I need help with) -- thanks.

We only need to see the specs for the one you are troubleshooting!

Nice to hear you got it sorted out.
