Hi, I bought a Asus g73jh which comes stock with windows 7. I downgraded to vista. It installed all the drivers through update. I noticed graphics were not working right and I got a 1.0 in that area in the windows experience index.
The graphics card is ATI mobility radeon HD 5870. I downloaded the catalyst driver update for the card and installed/ran it, it didn't give me any problems, but didn't fix the problem.
I ran CPU-ID and under the graphics tab everything is blank.
In the device manager I have the following yellow exclamation points:
-Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
-PCI Simple Communications Controller
Under display adapters there is only Standard VGA Graphics Adapter (and it has a yellow ! as mentioned).
I was thinking maybe I should have something about video controllers under Sound, video and game controllers in the device manager but there is only something about sound.
BTW like I said the stock operating system is windows 7 therefore the only drivers I have on disc are for windows 7 and not vista.
It is very possible there are no Vista drivers available for your laptop. Most new PC's that come with 7 do not offer drivers for older OS's.
Why in the world would you downgrade from a superior OS (7) to an inferior resource hog (Vista)? :4-dontkno
