    ok, so recently my computer crashed and i had to completely restart the computer (remove all files and start again basically), the graphics before ran smoothly and i could go on any game video etc... now i can hardly play anything and most videos don't load also scrolling down is much less smooth and i really need help, i looked around and couldn't find a fix but found there is probably a problem with my graphics card. i dont know how to reinstall it and can't find it anywhere on my computer anymore. quite annoying please help

    How about taking a peek at the card and let's be sure we have the right model.......Without me googling, I'm assuming this is an add in card, right?

    I'm not to sure to be honest and if i need to take it apart im not to sure what to look for either, im pretty sure it was a NVIDA Mx440 and i haven't taken any part of it apart or changed anything since my computer crashed so i dont understand why it isn't working. Is there a way to check that it is pluged in okay without taking apart the cpomputer?

    Where is the monitor connected? Close to the same ports of the keyboard/mouse? Or is it further below everything, looking like it has a slot of its own?

    It's onboard then. You need the motherboard drivers as well as the video driver. You'll get that from the MOBO manufacturer website. If you have a branded system, go to their site instead.
