Hello all
Upgraded Sony laptop from Vista to W7.
Now W7 thinks I have a generic VGA card.
When I try to install a driver from Sony the S/W say's that the best driver is installed, which is a generic VGA driver.
Any ideas how to get W7 to see the Nvidia Graphic's Card
The PC is a Sony VGN-AR770 Laptop
Thanks for any help.

Your laptop does not seem to have any Windows 7 drivers, in some cases though Vista drivers work.

Try these http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VG...

If that does not work, go to www.nvidia.com and search for a driver for GeForce 8600M GT as that is the card that looks to be in your system and try using their drivers.
