Hey everyone,

I just got a new motherboard, (the TP45 HP) by biostar and a q6600 running windows vista ultimate 64 bit. But i am having trouble with my 8800GTS which isnt detected by the system. But i am able to see and use vista but when i go into device manager, it says that the graphics card is a Standard VGA Graphics adapter and it dosnt let me see the clocks or memory capacity. Also, when i do a system rating it says the Graphics has a rating of 1.0 and nothing more. Which is really odd scince before this new motherboard and processor, the rating was 5.9. I really cant figure out a solution and I need help and it would be greatly apreciated.

Yeah, you need to use whql certified drivers. It's a "Security" measure, but I think it's more of a pain than anything. Well you can install non whql certified drivers in 64-bit Vista, but that's a big pain too ^_^.
