    To check your card Start -> Run -> dxdiag -> Display.

    Then tell us what card you've got as the guy above thinks you made a mistake.

    This is an easy one.

    Go to the Nvidia site. Select graphics driver. Select GeForce or TNT (you have a standard GeForce card). Select your operating system. Download the driver.

    FYI: On a graphics card, it is the chipset that counts (Nvidia does not make video cards). Somebody other than Nvidia always makes the video card.
