This can be caused by using a motherboard that is incompatible or unsupported by Windows Vista.
This issue can also be caused if the correct drivers are not installed for the motherboard after an OS upgrade from Windows XP.
Most laptops are not meant for gaming, basically defeats the purpose.
Either settle for an integrated or a really-low level gfx card, or get a desktop, that's the only solution.
Common Driver Sources Community Q&A Video card drivers are important for all computers because they tell the operating system (Windows 7) how to operate your video card.
Updating your video card drivers is sometimes required when one wants to run a game which demands a more up to date driver.
Restarting the computer will allow Windows to re-detect the monitor. Reinstall the monitor's specific INF driver or if the specific monitor INF driver for the monitor is not available, select "Plug and Play Monitor".
If I got something with 64 MB video card or 128...... Obviously I would bring it somewhere to do that, as I wouldn't know how to do it myself.But when i wanted to play my fav game cs 1.6 my laptop gave an error that there wasn't a video card. I would like to buy a video card for it but I don't know much about video cards. Wondering wht type of semi-nice (medium to high settings) graphic card would work well with machine. ------------------ System Information ------------------ Time of this report: 4/23/2011, ...From the research that I've done I've discovered that I need an AGP 8x/4x (1.5V) compatible video card. Right my friend was playing Sims 3 this morning and it said there was an update, so he updated and then everything just went weird, seems like the graphics card driver was uninstalled and he could play sims 3 before but after the update it said he couldn't. Taking Intel as an example, you'll find that the same or similar GPU is used as you work your way up the Core i7 range.That means that even if you do upgrade the processor, you won't get an improvement in graphics performance.
