Did you uninstall the drivers first from Device Manager?

Doesn't Windows7 pick up a WDDM model for you on restart?

Here's what I get:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2572&SUBSYS_FB611297&REV_02
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2572&SUBSYS_FB611297
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2572&CC_038000
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2572&CC_0380

@reghakr: Am I supposed to uninstall it first?
And what's a WDDM model?

Hi. The video controller has nothing to do with the video display or your graphics card operating.

Install the latest driver from NVIDIA's site and you'll be set.

Yes,. uninstall the drivers firs. Look in Programs abd Features

Or in Device NMabager.

A WDDM is a Microsft driver

After it is installed your monitor should show up as the monitor you've listed above. Then just install the correct driver for your video card. Nvidia still reccomends the 195.62 for your card NVIDIA DRIVERS 195.62 WHQL Fabe
Yes, but the webpage for the monitor driver says it only works for VGA graphics cards. I have a PCI. I don't quite get what you're saying.
All video cards are vga cards regardless of output. Install the driver too for the monitor.

No need to uninstall drivers. Just install on top. Uninstall offers no benefit unless someone can't get a driver to install to begin with for whatever weird reason.

Okay, so during the install, it said that NVIDIA's control panel couldn't be installed (see attachment 1), and then it restarted and defaulted to the crappy Intel card built into the motherboard (see attachment 2). Then it restarted again, this time using the proper NVIDIA card. Photoshop works fine now, but I still have trouble watching fullscreen videos, and it still says I'm missing a Video Controller. What can I do about that?

Go to your motherboard manufacturers site and download the latest chipset drivers. Also make sure your onbaord video is disabled in your bios.

You might be able to disable onboard vga in the bios.

Install Shark007's codec pack.

The video controller could be for a tv tuner card or something like that.

How do I determine my Motherboard's manufacturer?

I've installed the codec pack,and I see no difference. What does it do?
Also, you said that the video controller doesn't affect video display. Does that mean the lack of a video controller is something I can safely put from my mind, or is it important that I get one?
