After Reinstalling Windows 7, Graphics Card Cannot Be Detected, Device Manager Shows "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter"


Jul 25, 2016

Recently, I reinstalled Windows 7 64-bit on my desktop computer and ended with a clean windows with absolutely nothing installed. I know that I need to install drivers, but the problem is that I inherited this computer from one of my dad's office employees who is now gone, so I don't have any driver CD's or anything, or even know what chips are inserted. What I did was opened the device manager, and individually found the hardware which needed drivers by using their Hardware IDs and searching on PCI Database. This worked for my Ethernet and a few other Intel components.

However, firstly, I don't know what make or model my graphics card is, and secondly, the device manager shows my display adapter to be "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter".

I use an Intel Core i3-4130 CPU @ 3.40 GHz, 4GB RAM,

This is the info that DirectX Display Tab Show:

Please bear in mind that I am relatively new to this, and there are very basic things I don't know about. I'll try my best to follow any instructions or provide extra info. Sorry in advance. Any help is extremely appreciated.

Thank You
