Long story short my computer does not recognize its graphics card as what it is drivers are installed and everything(77.72's with direct x 9.0c) but when i try to run counterstrike source it says that I need a direct x 7.0 compatible graphics card or something of that sort, I have done all that needs to be done(uninstalling previous drivers, then rebooting in safe mode/regular mode and installing the new drivers with no anti virus type programs running)

When watching videos everything appears to be at double brightness(eg gammas way to high) but I can play plenty of games just fine without the gamma being affected(just not ones past direct x 7)

Any hints/tips would be appreciated

I had an nvidia 5200 card for some time, and I hated the drivers nvidia wanted to install. Of course, I switched over to ATI and I love it... let's not get into that though. I would suggest trying some DNA drivers and see how your luck goes. Try These
later

Edit:
oh yes, and to insure a clean uninstall of all previous drivers, take a look at this website http://www.tweakguides.com/NVFORCE_4.html

My counterstrike can actually start now, I'll be sure to come back if I have any more problems

I have the same card, and the same problem. For now, to fix that problem,
open the Windows Media Player and go to Tools, then Options.
There, choose, Performance and put the Video Acceleration to the half way, then apply.
At least as a temporary fix, it worked for me.
