    ya its the right ones ive also tried other ones to, to see if they would download but all of them just come up with the same response ever time. Im kinda thinking it might be a bug saying that i dont have the right graphics driver. what do you think? I cant tell you more information on my graphics card because im not sure what it is. Is it a graphic driver?

    thanks for the help

    You can't use a driver for a different card. You need to buy a new one.

    You buy the card at a store, the drivers, you can download free on the internet.
    You can also buy graphics cards online if you can't go to a shop

    Also before you buy one, if you still have your manual, be sure to check what slot it is (AGP etc...)
