Windows 7: two graphics drivers and a mystery

07 Aug 2009   #1

two graphics drivers and a mystery *SOLVED*

Okay this is what I see in my comp management>>Device Drivers.

Are there supposed to be two graphics drivers? And the yellow triangle. I'm not too sure about that.

Any suggestions???

I've got to leave for work so I'll check back tonight!

Cheers :)

Sometimes there are two graphics drivers (usually when second monitor is plugged).
Yellow triangle means that your computer have unrecognized hardware

Okay. How would I go about finding out what driver is needed for it? I've tried updating it but it doesn't find any.

If all your hardware works it's probably just some bug (it happened to me once).
Just ignore it...

Sassa is right,

Leave the triangle as it is, if you don't have any problems.

Sometimes people are allergic to yellow triangles and end up ruining their sytem trying all kinds of drivers for it.

I have 2 yellow triangles, but all my hardware that was in XP and Vista, is there in Win7, so I don't care about the triangles.

The two graphics drivers is indeed right.
Some drivers oem's prefer to show both VGA and DVI as separate drivers.
Others prefer to show it as one.

That splat is for your Trusted Platform Module. I would link you an IBM provided driver, but your sys specs are not complete enough.

Start here:
Lenovo Support & downloads - Atmel TPM (Trusted Platform Module) device driver for Windows Vista 32-bit, XP, 2000 - ThinkPad
- not the right page, but I think you can take it from there.

That's all I needed to know

Not sure if I want to hose my system but I'll give the driver description a read!

Thanks guys
