I am going through the process of trying to get my graphics card to work after an upgrade to Windows Server 2008 R2 which I use as a workstation. My graphics card was working fine before the upgrade, but now it is not detected by the system altogether, and my device manager lists only "Standard VGA Adapter". I've looked it up, and it seems that the recommended thing to do is to go into the BIOS and change the settings for graphics card detection from "Onboard" to "Auto." Unfortunately, it seems that there are no video settings in my BIOS whatsoever, unlike all of the screenshots I've seen of other BIOS interfaces. I have an "American Megatrends Inc. 205", from July 2008. I'm stumped. Should I update the BIOS? I know that tampering with the BIOS is a risky operation, and I'm trying to avoid doing it.

Hello :welcome: to BC!!!

So you are saying that this system has an onboard graphics card and one that you bought and put in, and that windows is not detecting the outboard card but it is detecting the onboard card? Try updating video card drivers.

Thanks for your reply,

Ok, so I ended up solving the problem with a little more research.
I found that there is a guide for specifically this issue at this site

I used Lavalys Everest Ultimate Edition to detect the actual graphics card, following the instructions under "Method 2" in the above guide.

I downloaded the drivers for my card (NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS (Asus)) and installed them, restarted, and the card was detected as normal again.

Problem solved - thanks for the help anyway. :]
