Windows 7 - Nvidia Geforce Go 7400


I recently upgraded my Sony Vaio LA1 desktop PC to Windows 7 32bit from Windows XP 32bit. Everything seemed to go to plan, except that my Nvidia GeForce GO 7400 graphics card is not being recognised. Windows is instead displaying a 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' that will not let my computer display in its native 16:9 resolution, instead forcing it to display a stretched 4:3

I fully expected my computer not to run Aero following the upgrade, but for the drivers for my graphics card not to work at all is extremely annoying.

I have tried downloading the drivers direct from Nvidia, but when I try to install them, the installer simply says that it cannot find the Nvidia card and cancels.

Sony is no use at all.

Please help. I am a designer, so to not be able to see things in the correct resolution is going to severely affect my work!

If Sony has customised the graphics hardware only Sony can provide the drivers needed.

You can try and see if the drivers there with the modified inf file will work.
