I know there are several threads but they are with different cards and they didn't solve my issue...
I bought a new MEDION AKOYA P5334E and the system arrived installed normally with Windows 7 home edition.
I've installed on the computer the Windows 7 enterprise edition (x64) and many drivers could not be find. I've installed nost of them, except the display adapter. It's stuck on "standard vga graphic adapter". I have the AMD Radeon HD7570 card but no matter what I try is not working! tried to uninstall the current driver, tried to download the driver from the AMD website (when executing it - it's running but does nothing). when executed the auto detect from AMD website, I got the message "we were unable to find your product or OS"
I just installed Windows 7 RC1 32-bit OS onto my laptop. Without thinking i needed any drivers, i went to play World of Warcraft. It told me that it could not locate a display device and wouldn't work. I figured i needed to install my grpahics card drivers for my Nvidia 9 series card. When i went to install the drivers, an error message appeared saying that it could not locate drivers compatible with my device.
I went to dxdiag and under display it shows that i have a standard vga adapter and won't recognize my actual graphics card. I'm not sure if i'm missing drivers, i haven't installed anything else except for this attempt at installing the nvidia driver.
Just done a clean install of windows 7 on my Sony VPN-SZ5VWN and it has installed all drivers apart from the display.It has a nVidia Go 7400 however when I try to install it it just states there is no nividia products. If I try to uninstall the VGA driver, it asks me to restart and then, before I can do anything, it reinstalls the standard VGA adapter driver. I do get a solution saying to download the driver however this does not work.The original drivers are for Vista and Sony provides no other supported OS for them.
I just installed Windows 7 Professional 64x. Previously, I had 32-bit Vista Ultimate.
I have a Dell Precision M90, with 4 gigs of ram, a 2.00 GHz core duo processor, and a Nvidia Quadro FX 2500M video card.
In the device manager, my display adapter shows as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. I'm decent with computers, so I've upgraded video card drivers before. However, for some reason it is not allowing me to upgrade this driver. I have tried with both a 2500M driver as well as a 7900GTX driver (which worked for me in Vista).
I have also tried uninstalling the driver first, but it won't let me install another one before restarting and when I restart it just reinstalls the Standard VGA Graphics adapter.
i have been looking through my system info i noticed that my Standard VGA adapter (the pre installed one that comes wit Win 7) has no VRAM, plz help i cant play any games i need 64mb of VRAM. I tried getting Nvidia display adapters but I cant install my working graphic driver, just the ones my comp cant support.
I put Windows 7 on my friends computer since he wanted me to, so I installed it. But there was one problem. His resolution is stuck at 640x480. It said he is running from a Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. His computer is fairly old, but all of the hardware is pretty good except for the video card. I brought him my old 7700 GTS for him to use for the time being, but I cannot install the drivers for it, and the computer still says he is running Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.
I have an Acer Aspire 8930G. It's GFx card died a year or so ago, and I just bought a new one, a NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT DDR3 MXM II, from eBay.When my laptop worked, it had Vista installed. So naturally I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate. Now windows 7 has been installed, all updates been installed. All but one. the nVidia driver.I can't seem to install it. I have searched the net for solutions. Found some, but couldn't go on.Fx. tried to add some lines in the drivers .inf files. Put a line with my hardwares ID, but my hardware lacked some digits. I'm stuck with standard VGA graphics adapter.
yesterday i installed windows 7 to my computer . and when i installed my graphics card driver , it only shows standard vga graphics adapter in Device manager. and in Display-screen resolution- advanced settings it shows :
chip type: ATI ATOMBIOS DAC TYPE: 8bit Adapter string : VGA Bios information ; 01.00
my graphics card is : EAH3870/G/HTDI/512M Radeon HD 3870 512MB
i tryed installing the latest driver and the only thing it show's is that. .. how do i change standard vga graphics adapter to my Radeon HD 3870..... and when i restarted my pc it's screen resolution is changed to 800+600 ....
here is my dxdiag

What happens if I disable "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" under display adapters? I'm trying to install the driver for my Radeon 6950 to get it working. I tried once and on startup all I got was a black screen after it said "Windows is Starting." I booted in safe mode and uninstalled the driver. I realized I hadn't installed my mobo drivers so I did that. On some online forums it said I should be looking for "Intel Integrated graphics" and disable it then install my graphics card driver. But all I see is "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter." My monitor is hooked to my graphics card through an AVG to DVI connector. I'm running an intel i5-2500k on an ASRock p67 Extreme4
I recently bought a HP 630 laptop and installed W7 X32. I need to update my Standard VGA Graphic adapter because the version I have is 6.1.7600. 16385 while driver scanner tells me the latest version is 9. 17. 10. 2867. My resolution is very poor.
I had Windows 7 64 bits and it was everything fine, but I have some programs that require drivers, and there isn't a driver for 64 bits. So I tried installing the Windows 7 32 bits version.Everything was working fine, until I found out that my video card isn't being recognized anymore, and it's being showed as "Standard VGA Adaptor". I searched and found out some people with the same problem. Most people advised them to update drivers, but that didn't work with me.The following error ocurrs when I try running the stup.exe which should update my video card's driver: "The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."The thing is, I tried unistalling the "Standard VGA Adaptor" driver, but it requeires me to reboot, and when it reboots the drivers are automaically reinstalled. I also tried reinstalling Windows 7 32 bits, didn't work. Tried reinstalling Windows 7 64 bits, didn't work.
OK as Ive been looking around the site Ive noticed that there are many issues like this one, and Im sure there are plenty of people out there that have this problem.
My "Windows Experience Index" is at a 1.0 only because my Graphics, and Gaming Graphics rating are at 1.0. Everything else is at 5.9 which I can live with.
When I look at my adavanced settings for my monitor it Shows my Nvidia GPU but only running with 14 MB total avail mem. And I know that NOT right. Unfortunatly when I went to Nvidia's site and ran the auto detect it said that I didnt even have their product and that I had the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.
I can't seem to find the right drivers for this to fix it all, and I would love to be able to "Experience" Windows 7 at its fullest. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully the attached photos will give you an idea as to what Im working with. Also When i toubleshoot Aero Ive received this message:
"The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver."
And when I try to change my screensaver to a 3D one it states that I either need a newer graphics card or one that is compatible with Direct3D.
I'm on Windows 7 Professional 64 bits My motherboard has an onboard graphics card that works just fine. I installed an old PCI graphics card in order to use more monitors (TNT2 Riva by NVidia). The card is so old that it doesn't have a driver for Windows 7 64bits (it seems that it works in 32 bits)As a result Windows 7 uses a "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" as the driver, the monitor and card works but it wont let me go above 1024x780, is there any way to force a higher resolution in this driver? Both my monitor and card can support it?
sony vaio as above.. in device manager my radeon is showing as standard VGA, I tried to download the drivers from radeon using the AMD automatic driver installer it found the radeon but could not instal the driver, so I went to sony site for the driver I can download it but when I try to open it all I get is an error saying "compressed zip folder invalid".
heres my laptop spec if it helps

i have a video card NVIDIA MX440 with 64 Mb, installed in my mother board, and recently i changed my OS, upgrading it with a windows 7 enterprise version, [formerly i had a xp pro OS] it happens that i cant have the aerials and transparencies, which is an extraordinary new feature of the 7, i'm being told that my problem is too small the board memory of 64 Mb, the video card must support DirectX9.0 or newer, and the driver should be compatible with windows display driver model = WDDM, WDDM 1.0 or higher drive, would it be possible to improve thru updating the driver, downloading from some specific site?
I successfully installed the driver on my old machine for a Radeon 9200 by installing in XP Mode.
However, on my new machine which has a X1900XT, there isn't even a "Display Adapter" listed under device manager. I have tried installing the drivers from ATI's website for Vista and XP under those modes but it doesn't work.
I think I could manually install a driver if it would let me see a "Display Adapter" under device manager. Any idea on why it wouldn't show at least a generic display adapter there?
My motherboard is an Asus A8R32-MVP Deluxe, maybe I need a driver to enable the PCI Express port???
I have an Acer Ferrari 3400 laptop. The model only comes with XP but I installed Windows 7 and now when install games the game wont load in fullscreen mode. Ive tried changing resolution, running in XP sp3 mode. nothing works. Is there a display driver i can install that will fix this problem.
i was having a problem with a usb driver i downloaded for my motorola phone. I found that out because every time i disconnected it from my laptop a blue screen would pop up and would restart my computer. This happened to me 3 times. A while ago i was playing my games perfectly with my main graphics card the Nvidia GT 555m. I was charging my phone then i disconnected the usb then the blue screen popped again and restarted my laptop. I then tried fixing the driver problem and i did. The only problem was when i tried playing my games it was running slow and i noticed that it was running on the integrated graphics card Intel R graphics HD card. I went to check under display adapters and noticed that the Dedicated graphics card Nvidia Gt 555m was not there anymore.

Two days ago, my brother complained to me about his laptop, Windows seemed to have just froze, with screen tearing and weird lines all over the screen. I told him to restart his laptop. Upon restarting, the entire was black, with the windows logo stretched across the screen, all torn. But I could still hear the Windows noises it makes when it logs in, So this got me thinking, could it be an issue with his Display Driver?
I booted in Safe Mode to see if it would boot up, it works fine. No black screen, no tearing, nothing. Which makes me think that it must be a issue with his Driver. I asked him if he's made any changes recently to his drivers and he said no.
I next went into the Device Manager to find his Display Adapter, and I disabled it. I then restarted his laptop to see if it'll work, and it worked. No problem, no screen tearing, it logged him in fine. I next went about uninstalling and reinstalling his driver.
I rebooted it into Safe Mode and uninstalled his driver from the Device Manager. Then, I went about reinstalling it again, so I went to the ATI website, AMD or something I think it was called, and I had to download the AMD Vistion Engine Control Center. It found drivers for several things, including his Display Graphics. So I downloaded them, installed them. I restarted his laptop, but the same thing happened. Black Screen, screen tearing, Windows Logo stretched and torn.
I accidentally disabled my onboard display adapter and after rebooting, the screen goes black but windows continues to load in the background.Can someone kinldy post a step by step guide for re enabling the adapter for windows 7 ultimate using a Keyboard
Device Manager is showing the Display Adapter as "VirtualBox Graphics Adapter" I want it to recognise my Sapphire Radeon X1650 Graphics Card so that i can install the appropriate ATI Drivers. How can I do this.
On a similar note my on - board Sound Chip has not been identified properly and again i would like to correct this and install the correct drivers.
I got a NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M grafical card in my notebook. However, most of the time I use the Intel integrated graphics (Ci7-2670QM processor). All NVIDIA drivers and NVIDIA applications are installed too.When I double-click any 3D picture file (*.jps file), the NVIDIA 3D Vision Photo Viewer is then called;however, the app doesn't seem to find the display adapter of nvidia and generates an error:"primary display's adapter does not support nvidia 3d vision".I tried to fix the problem using the NVIDIA's Control Panel by setting the gt540m as the preferred gpu, and rebooting the computer a few times, but it does not the error keeps on popping up. I've also associated the gt540m as the preferred gpu specifically for the /NVIDIA 3D Vision Photo Viewer/ app, but also that doest even after a few reboots.I read somewhere one should install the NVIDIA Optimus app but I prefer to solve the problem manually and not let the problem be solved in a hidden way by some other app---Optimus in this case
I basically had 3 accounts on my computer, one being "Administrator" (w Admin rights), one "test" (Standard User rights) and one more "User" that is the one I use most frequently (with Admin rights). When I last used it last Friday the User account was still present and all my programs were working fine.
However, when I came back to office today, I found that the User account was missing from the welcome screen, and only the "Administrator" and "test" account were there. Somehow, I could not login to the "Administrator" account. When I logged into the "test" account, all the program shortcuts were blank (Firefox, Adobe Reader Etc) and only IE and the default windows programs would work. I suspected that there might be a virus, but I couldn't install anything because I did not have the admin privileges.
My question is: 1. How do I get back into my admin account? 2. is there any way to install anti-virus programs (by going around the admin account) to solve this issue?
I'm basically stuck with a standard user account and I can't do anything with it. I tried using System Restore on the Standard account, but when I click "Open System Restore" nothing happens.
I got a Bluetooth USB adapter (model number is ES-388, no brand) so that I could use my Bluetooth A2DP headset with my Windows 7 PC, but I can't seem to get it to work. Windows does not recognize the device (the adapter), and won't activate it.
Is there a driver that I need to install? The adapter itself came with nothing...
I am someone that needs to upgrade my video adapter to get windows 7 on my new 320 GB hard drive. I currently have a VIA/S3G Unichrome Pro IGP video adapter. It says that I need to get it compat[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/JOHN/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]ible with windows Aero support. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to make this happen. I just installed a second hard drive 320 GB and my first 80 GB has windows xp installed. This is a machine that has a celeron processor 2.53 Ghz. Enpower machine built by PC Club when they were in business. I just maxed my memory out at 2 GB. It has been a good machine.
I stay at a remote location that requires me to have a 25' usb antenna with an external internet adapter to receive a signal (from across a lake) to my laptop. What I was wondering is if I can plug in a second USB antenna which would hopefully generate a wifi hotspot (from the same laptop) for my 11 year old to use her Ipad or even a second laptop that doesn't have the fancy antenna. I've played with the adhoc network ability in Windows 7 but all info I can find assumes that the primary connection is from a wired source.
