    If you don’t have a CD with your video driver on it you will have to download it from the manufacturer’s site.

    You normally install it through device manager – right click My Computer>Properties>Device manager and double left click on display adapters and then your card.

    yes... microsoft's video drivers don't work as well... if you can find the manufacture's drivers you will be able to select a much higher resolution.
