graphic driver!!! not working!

Following my question about aero peek not working, i have come to realise that my graphic driver has not been installed properly and that the rating of my graphics is only 1.0.

Therefore I went onto my laptop company's site and downloaded the latest graphic driver for windows vista 32bit. As I now have windows 7 32 bit, I put the driver's compatibility as Windows Vista and ran it as an administrator and restarted my laptop.

From the device manager, now it says NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT, as it should.
However, when i go onto Windows Experience Index, and run the assesement again,
it says:
[windows experience index for your system could not be computed:
  cannot complete assessment.....etc etc]

Any idea as to why this does not work?

plus, is there a specific way of installing the graphics driver on win7 to get this working again?

p.s. as i have said, i have already downloaded the latest version of my graphics driver.
