Okay i'm gonna tell the truth cause that's how you guys can fully help me. Here's my problem: I could play minecraft on windows xp perfectly using the exact same hardware as i currently own (same computer and everything) One day i decided i wanted to install windows 7 for free. I installed it and it ran (seemingly) perfect. I started to notice a few problems down the line: 1. I can't enable the aero themes 2. I can't play minecraft! thay bad driver message comes up saying update driver so i try to update the driver form the nvidia site (that is my driver) and it won't let me, i look and my driver properties and it just shows up as Standard VGA graphics adapter when it is actually an nvidia adapter that ran fine on xp. how do i configure this nvidia driver so that it runs as it did in xp, making minecraft work and maybe the aero problem because im sure they are both connected to the same problem. i have also tried adjusting the hardware acceleration too with no success thanks in adanced and i hope you can help!
