Matrox G550 Driver - Win7

Hi there,

I'm trying to connect a Matrox Millenium G550 low profile PCI card to Win7, it picks up the card fine and installs a driver which it labels "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" in Device Manager.

I don't suppose anyone's come across a driver that works or a workaround to get dual screen working?

I've tried the Vista driver and no luck.

Any ideas would be grateful.

Thanks.

Try with a Windows Server 2008 or R2 drivers that are available on Matrox web site.

Try the server 2008 r2 drivers, they should be compatible with and the closest to Windows 7. Maybe also check if the BIOS of the card is current.
