    Okay so here is my problem. I have an Alienware m17x laptop. I have upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista x64. Now for some reason it is only recognizing my Nvidia 9400m onboard graphics card, instead of my Nvidia Geforce GTX 260M Graphics card. This is rather annoying since I payed alot of money for this laptop and its features. Now I was wondering if there was any specific driver I needed for that or what?

    Before you respond with 'checking the NVIDIA website' for drivers, I already did. Didn't work. Does windows 7 not support SLI and if so how do I get it working? Thank you.

    Specs:
    Intel Dual Core Processor T9600 2.8 Ghz
    4GB RAM
    NVIDIA 9400M onboard
    NVIDIA Geforce GTX 260m

    When you go to Device Manager > Display adapters, what shows up here.

    Is there an uninstall in Control Panel > Programs and Features?
