NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS PLZ HELP''''''

hi there every one,I just joined this form today.
And i am hoping you guys can help me,because I ll go mad with this proble.
I have got HP dv9655 (kb398ea).Originally it came with Vista home premium.But last week i decide to download windows 7.I wiped my hard drive and did clean install (windows7).
It is activated ok,and it says genuni and activated in system info.
MY PROBLEM is Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS (I think)
When i check Device Manager Display,I got yellow mark,i just can't update it.
I tried evrything no joy at all.
My questions:
1)What drivers i need for windows7 Ultimate 32-bit

2)Do I need to download Nvidia drivers from, Nvidia site or HP site.

3)My biggest annoying problem is , screen resulation.It stuck on 600- 480
and I cant changed it.

4)So drivers i need if i am right.
a)nvidia chipset ,(but which one)
What else i got no idea.

Still can not change scrren resulationnnn
Just last thing
When i ran bios ,it still shows "VISTA" on bios ,do i also need to do anything with BIOS settings?
