  1. Hi everyone.

    I have recently installed windows 7 home premium on to my laptop, which did have vista. Since the install it wont let me use programs such as windows dvd maker, windows media center. It displays a message saying "The video card on this computer doesent meet the minimum requirements for this program" however i used to programs fine on vista. Also i can no longer find the settings for my graphics. I have a samsung r700 with an NVIDIA graphics card. I know it can be a real pain in the *** to upgrade a graphics card in a notebook, I would just like to know if there is an alternate solution to upgrade something that will enable me to use these programs.

    Thanks guys

    You need to install the correct display drivers for your card to work.

    And if you didn't install the display drivers, you also might not have installed the other drivers, such as chipset, sound, LAN, etc.
