So my friend gave me an old handmedown laptop but I am having trouble with it. I reformatted it and put windows 7 on it, but there is a problem. Apparently the video card is incompatible with windows 7 because whenever I install a video driver it blue screens. I don't really know what to do, it's a zt laptop designed for vista, is there anything, apart from installing vista I can do to rig a video driver to work?

What video card does it have? You can try installing the latest driver package from Nvidia's/AMD's site instead of from the laptop manufacturer's site if that's where you were getting the drivers from.

It has a geforce 8400m GS, and I got the drivers from the main site those are the ones that crash.

Can you get the vista driver from the manufacturer's website? Vista drivers will work on 7.
