Windows 7

So, upon further review, I think either my card may be bad, my pci-e slot may be bad, or my cpu is going out. I noticed the small heatsink by the battery on the motherboard is now getting very hot. From what I understand, there is nothing but bad stuff coming and the graphics card may just have been the first thing to go. Is there something in the new Windows management system that has caused a mis-management of my power on my motherboard? AHHHHHHHH! How upsetting!

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit version

Do you have a DVI connection on your monitor or a TV because I'm thinking your problem might be from using the VGA connection on the motherboard. Esp. if you have a built in video on the motherboard. You enabled the PCI express in the bios which would disable the onboard video and connections. If you wanted to check your video card for life you could connect it in another computer and see what happens.

I think there is an adapter you can by to connect vga to Dvi or vice versa

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit

I had the same issue - upgraded to win 7 and found that my nvidia 7600 gs was no longer recognized, and that I had a 'standard VGA Adapter" instead. I now have the display driver working properly. Here's how:

Step 1:

go to the following link, and select "ge force 7 series" and "GeForce 7600 Gs" from the dropdown menus

Click on the link for version 197.45, named "GeForce Release 197 whql"

Download the file

NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search

Step 2:

Run the installation file. It will fail, but we need to have the files extracted. Do not change the default location the driver is extracted to. Eventually, you will get an error message telling you the installation failed.

Step 3:

Open up the device manager (start -> control panel -> Hardware and Sound -> device manager)

under "display adapters" you should see the standard vga adapter.
right click the standard vga adapter, select 'properties' -> update driver
click "browse my computer for driver software"
click "let me pick from device drivers on my computer"
click "have disk"
click "browse"
navigate to "C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\197.45\WinVista_Win7\English"
select "NV_DISP"

Step 4:
click "ok"
You should now be in a dialogue box labelled "update driver software - nvidia 7600 gs"
on the left, select the lowermost "NVIDIA" under manufacturer
scroll to and select the uppermost "7600 gs" if you are running 32 bit, and the lowermost one if you are running 64 bit

hit nexts and oks until the driver installs and the computer restarts with graphics component.

Hope this helps!

Windows7 home premium 32 bit upgraded from factory vista OS

not to be the bringer of bad tiding but i tried a clean install of 7 on a vista laptop on another HD with aid from the hp website and i must say the link was great all the drivers and step by step instructions and everything ....right up to the point where most of my hardware didnt have full functionality and many just never worked. I am trying to get back to factory vista from the the recovery partition on the original HD to start the upgrade fresh but even that seems a mission. I would say try starting with a fresh vista install with all hardware working and try troubleshooting from there.
