    Hello everyone, first I would like to apologize if I make mistake because I am not very good in english, I am french.:eek:

    Okay so for like... a month my computer have not been able to detect my Graphic card. It happened after I downloaded a patch for origin; after that, there would be black border around my screen and I am not able to enter video game. I updated my driver and everything but it is still not working.

    Also, i would like to note that some video game that I played that my computer used to run smoothly where starting to lag (skyrim)

    Do you think my graphic card is broken and I need to change it ? I just want to make sure before buying another one...
    (it is a nvidia Geforce 560 Ti)

    Thank you for the help !
    xxx :)

    Hi sweetymew and welcome. When you updated you driver did you go to the manufacturer's website? Did you uninstall the older drivers first? It'll help us more if we know what we're working with. The Techguy System Information Tool helps us see what you have.
