Graphics Card Not Found

Hello there. I'm new here, but after looking over the forums this place seems full of helpful people. I looked and looked but did not find any thread thats close to my odd case I have here...

About a month back, the hard drive in my Acer Aspire 7552 series laptop failed. Being in perpetual poverty and unable to go out and replace it, I just started using my Aspire One Netbook. Obviously it can't run games or anything. So yesterday I got this idea in my head: Since my netbook has a hard drive that will fit into my laptop, why not just use it? So, thats what I did. I switched out the hard drives, and replaced the 32-bit Windows 7 starter edition with my 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium. Beyond some initial driver issues, most everything seems to have come out ok except my graphics card. Dxdiag now says that I have a standard vga chipset, and the option to have my display resolution at 1600x900 is gone. Im getting pretty much the display options I had for my netbook. Is there any fix or...?

EDIT: Graphics card is a AMD Mobility Radeon 6650M
