Vista Subscore problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys this is my first build. I got everything up and running. Only problem I ran into once I got into windows was with my vid card. Vista didn't recognize my video card and loaded the default driver.

Turned out I had to register the product with EVGA to download the driver. Vista now recognizes the card and driver but my graphics and 3D graphics subscore is a 1.

I just got done playing Age of Conan at full settings so I know thats not the case. There is an exclamation point saying my hardware has been updated when I go into Vista score, but refreshing and running the scoring app doesn't improve it.

Any suggestions or advice?

Have you tried to update/refresh your score with the new drivers installed ??
