Hi,I bought a new computer with windows 7 32bit and nvidia geforce gt 620 video card.
when i used directx diagnostic tool>display under device it shows standard vga graphics adapter,but i have a nvidia geforce gt 620 also on my pc. But when i went to control panel>device manager>display adapter there it displays nvidia gefore gt 620 along with standard vga graphics adapter. But when i opened a game it says "please check your graphics card meet the minimum requirement" and the game is over 14 years old.Someone said that switching to windows 7 64 bit will help me get rid of the problem.Please help,thank you.

Which game? GT 620 is a basic graphics card and may actually not meet the minimum requirement.

suzuki alstare extreme racing made by ubisoft.IT used smoothly on my previous computer which had a intel 64 gb graphic card.
Is it a problem with my windows 7 32 bit OS or something else?
Do i need to switch to 64 bit,which i will in few days.

Sounds like the correct drivers are not installed. Go to the nvidia website, download and install the drivers. The problem is not win 7.

64bit is faster. But if you got the 32bit version, No need to upgrade just for the 64 bit version. Upgrade when you want a newer version.

You can backup your data somewhere. Your data will be erased if you format your drive and install the new OS (Fresh Install). Otherwise it wont. A fresh install is always recommended after backing up the data.

A couple of things here, first, the only major advantage to installing the 64 bit version, is you can install more than 4 gig of RAM. If you don't need to install more memory than 4 gig, then there is no advantage to changing to the 64 bit version of Windows. However, especially if you game with newer games, 8 gig of memory is pretty much the standard. If you are playing an older game, like the one you are talking about, 4 gig of memory is plenty.

Now, the second thing, there is no direct in-place upgrade from a 32 bit OS to a 64 bit OS. The "upgrade" part refers only to the license. To go from a 32 bit version of Windows to a the 64 bit version will require a clean, new install. So if you do decide to upgrade, be certain to save all your data, like pictures, videos, music, or any other important files you have to an external drive before you do the "upgrade".
