I have a similar problem, however it is one step worse. I am using a Nvidia
Go 6600 on my Qosmio laptop and so far cannot get Windows Vista Beta 2 to
recognize the existence of the card at all. By default all I can access is
the default VGA graphics that come with the system and these are debilitating
to say the least.
So far, I have tried repeatedly to find make the system recognize the
existence of the card without success. I have tried installing the drives
that Nvidia has published with no success - I receive the message that
either, the drivers cannot install because it cannot detect the necessary
hardware or that I am not installing the new drivers on the required Windows
Vista (which I most certainly am). I don't know what else to do on this
matter. I have played in the device manager and tried every trick I know,
but I still can't get it work. Suggestions are most defenitely welcome.
