Make sure you've got the latest drivers installed, they are:

NVIDIA DRIVERS 197.13 WHQL

Also, make sure you have the latest DirectX installed:

Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

EDIT: Now that I've looked at your screenshot a bit closer, you have a serious problem. Your video card is showing up with 128MB of dedicated video ram. If you have a 9600 GT like it says you should have atleast 512MB of dedicated video ram. For example, I have a 9600M GT installed and my WEI looks like this:

Why don't you think it is working? Is it not doing something? Are you getting freezes?

Yip - Uninstall driver and update to nVidia GeForce Win7 latest. I'm pretty sure you have a VISTA beta driver installed at the moment under Win7.

Well before you switched screen shots it definately looked like you have an older driver installed, I would follow that link that notsograymatter gave you and update your video card driver.

Whatever you have installed at the moment is only using 128MB of your gfx ram, use the link in my first post and install those drivers.

Also, if this is a custom PC build, make sure you have the 9600 GT in the correct slot, it should be PCI Express 2.0 x16

The Windows rating merely suggests that your video card is not the best out there. It does not mean it is not working. As notsograymatter suggested, you can try updating the drivers. However, having been through a long drawn out NVidia driver issue, I lean toward the "if it's not broke, don't fix it philosophy. If your computer is performing as you need it to and doing what you want it to, everything is OK.

That said you can certainly try notsograymatters's advice and possibly increase the performance. Before you do that, make sure you write down the driver version you have now so that you can reinstall it if necessary. Also create a restore point before you make the changes. Creating a system image is a good idea, too.

The 197.XXX drivers did not work for me and I had to reinstall a 186.xxx driver to get mine working properly. However, that does not mean that driver will not work for you.

Edit to add - I did not see you mention freezes while I was typing. By all means, update the driver. Keep in mind that you might have to try several.
