Windows 7: Windows 7 Does Not Recognize my Nvidia Graphics Card

Windows 7 Does Not Recognize my Nvidia Graphics Card

I just installed Windows 7 Professional x64 yesterday, and It will not recognize my 512MB Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT hardware. Therefore I am unable to install any drivers, as it does not recognize the hardware at all. Is there a fix for this or will I have to wait until HP officially recognizes windows 7, and releases a guide?

I did a search on the forums and found your solution -=> Here
Once you have downloaded the correct driver, go to the device manager, locate the display adapter, update driver and point to the new driver that you downloaded... Hope this helps..

So i'm having the same problem with nVidia GeForce 8400M. I upgraded from 32-bit vista to 64-bit 7 but I can't find any drivers that work. I have an XPS M1530 if that matters at all.
