Exclamation Video Card Problems

hi everyone

recently my sony vaio packed up on me. vertical lines appearing on the screen during boot and when it gets to the logon screen its all blue lines and 30 seconds later it restarts etc etc.

however i managed to do a clean install of windows and can now get into the desktop but i still have lines down the screen and the computer is very slow.

the computer is not picking up my video card its a Nvidia GeForce FX Go 5700
here is a pic of the device manager.

if anyone has ideas or needs more info or screenshots dont hesitate to ask
