Windows 7: I'm just ready to give up

Hi anthonynkus, welcome to the forums.

You could try this.
Note   Note
You may need to download the drivers from nVidia in ZIP format & extract to a folder

Open Device Manager right click the 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' then 'Update Driver Software...'. Next, click 'Browse my computer for driver software' and browse to the folder you previously extracted the files to, then click on an INF file. You may have the choice of display adapter, just choose the 1 you have.

This should then start the installation process for the GFX driver.

Hope this helps




Jeff

To make sure that you are positively identifying the graphics adapter you have installed, use this utility GPU-Z Video card GPU Information Utility

Download page techPowerUp! :: Download TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.3.4

it depends on how much memory your gpu has.... its 4gb *addressable* memory which means everything that reserves primary memory (GPU, RAM, ect) pools from this 4gb and shares it..

Compare the chipset number and date at Dell to what you have now. Cupid should give you the current chipset version. If the one at dell is more recent, upgrade it.

Actually It sees all of it but usually uses 3.3gigs of 5 unless your mobo,bios,cpu handles extended mem space.

Well.... I did a quick check. It could be a moot point. Dell lists the maximum memory for your MOBO at 4GB (2x2GB) am I correct?

IF that is correct your benefits in running 64 Bit may be limited. Specifically, you will not be able to gain the benefit of addressable memory > 4GB.

I would imagine it zips along pretty well with W7, 64 bit or not 64 bit, doesn't it?

Considering all Dell supports for your system is 32 bit, this seems to be your only option. Still don't know why that is...
But at least you'll be able to install the drivers for your graphics card as that's the only drivers they list & support are 32bit.

Boot Ready CDs/DVDs won't boot even after they are boot ready!
The screen says: CD/DVD-ROM Boot Priority: Boot Ready But it goes to the regular boot screen. If it wasn't reading the disk, it wouldn't be saying Boot Ready. It is arranged to boot from the CD-ROM, otherwise, it wouldn't be saying CD-ROM Boot Priority.
