Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) dual boot with Fedora KDE

Sorry for grave digging but I think I know the solution.

The reason why 7 does not detect your graphics card is because you don't have chip set drivers installed properly.

Get Vista / XP chip set drivers and try to install them. If that doesn't work, you will have to extract chip set drivers from setup.exe of chip set drivers and make Device manger update drivers for all chip set components by having device manger to search through the extracted drivers.

Thats what I believe should fix the problem as the device manager screen shot that Ptor posted has a yellow exclamation mark on PCI Standard PCI-to-PCI bridge. It should not be like that. Also there is no CPU to AGP bridge or some driver of that sort in his screen shot of System Devices in Device manager.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your time!
