Standard VGA Graphics Adapter!!

Hey all, I just finished a clean install of Windows 7 and now my graphics card is unread by windows. I had this problem before and I was able to fix it, but this time my card is an ATI Radeon. I know I have to have a modified .inf file, but I don't know how to do that.

Here is the information on my laptop:
Model: Sony Vaio VPCEB390X
OS: Win7 x32
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 5650 (not 100% sure though)

How do I get the correct driver install?

Thanks in advance!!

If i am understanding your post correctly, I would download Speccy and verify your card model number, after that its simply a matter of going to ATI's driver download webpage here and choosing the correct driver for your card.

Was that under the monitor heading? you should have some more information about the gpu the just that. In any case if you go to the sony support website for your laptop, which is here you can get the 5650 driver there.

Well, going to the Sony drivers section solved the whole thing! I swear those drivers weren't there when I went there myself :P
