Problem with comp not detecting built in graphics card

Ever since I installed windows 7, my Laptop for some reason on dxdiag says that i have a Standard VGA Graphics Adapter, even though on vista i had a 9600m gt. Please help. I have put Dxdiag of my system as an attachment... Oh and if this helps I have installed windows 7 32 bit ultimate rtm. I also looked at these post and i was thinking about trying out NitroNate's solution since just dling the drivers did no work. But i can't seem to find to the drivers for the GX720 msi laptop.

[Solved]

I downloaded the drivers from the website brand (msi) and installed the drivers even though I heard reports of it not working o.O... Thanks for your posts and support from other threads which helped contribute to helping me.

what you need are the drivers for your system, do you have them? i used the ones that were intended for vista 32-bit for my system. i downloaded them from dell's site and extracted them, found the NVxx.INF file in the extracted folders.

in there, there will be a string that looks like this: DEV_0649&SUBSYS_XXXXYYYY, with the XXXXYYYY being what you need to find. this is the subsystem ID of your card.

ok sorry i didn't see your attachment. i see that the subsystem id is 72201462, with 1462 being the vendor of the subsystem. let me see if i can get you an INF that will work for you system.

looks like there are specific drivers for your system. i found them here:

MSI Global – Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more

they have a link for windows 7 32-bit vga drivers, not sure if those are the nvidia ones or not.
