    You need to install the correct drivers for the graphics card, at present you will only have the generic XP graphics driver installed. On the other hand if you are running off the motherboards built in graphics you need to install the chipset drivers.

    There is no graphics card listed in your specs so it is difficult to advise further. What make and model is the PC.

    1. Download the Mainboard Drivers (especially Chipset)
    2. Download and Install Video Card Driver

    Run Berlarc if you're unsure of specific models - it might be able to tell you some of the parts on your machine (especially the mainboard and video card)

    First Name:
    Right-click MY COMPUTER, then click Properties - Hardware - Device Manager, then click the + in

    Display Adapters

    What's listed in that heading?

    Double-click it to open its properties window, then click the "Driver" tab.

    What's listed for the driver date and driver version?


    If there are any entries with a ? next to them, advise what they're named.
