I recently upgraded to vista (32bit) and after a few initial problems everything seemed to be working fine. Until i tried to boot up Vice city (so glitchy it's unplayable) or NWN2(says my hardware doesn't support Direct3D), so i tried to update the drivers on my Nvidia Geforce Go 7400 but the setup says i don't have any compatible hardware. So then i checked device manager and it only shows the Intel chipset under display adapters. How can i get my laptop's real graphics card working again?

P.s. I'm running a vaio sz2

Please help, i've looked all over for a solution

Try setting your view settings to "windows classic" and try running the driver installer again. Vista's not going to recognize your card until you install the drivers for it. You can also try these drivers here.
