Windows 7: Standard VGA adaptor replaced my original ATI

Standard VGA adaptor replaced my original ATI

So, I've been using Window Vista home premium on my VAIO VGN-CR353 for a while now. When I installed Window 7 I noticed that my ATI mobility radeon x2300 was replaced by Standard VGA adaptor. Im not really good with computers so I really need your help. How do I get my computer to recognize my ATI card?

Thanks in advance

You need to install appropriate driver.
Sony website does not have a Official Windows 7 driver for your ATI card.

You could try to install Windows Vista drivers in compatibility mode from that sony website by selecting Vista as OS.
Many users reported that this trick helped.

But there might be the reason why Sony do not have Windows 7 drivers for your model - may be some features are not supported, may be glitches with Aero or something. For examples Dell does not officially support Windows 7 on some 2-3 y.o. Inspiron models, because they could not fix issue with drivers when playing video in Fullscreen in Aero mode (same thing in Vista works without a problem).
