    you need tor einstall the graphics driver. the first step is to identify the type pf graphics. Whether onboard or a Video card. you can use this freeware utility to find out what grpahics it has.

    if ti is onboard then you need to go to the motherboard makers site and download the drivers. if it si a video card then go to the card makers site.

    look under "motherboard" in SIW, note the manufacturer and model of the board. go to the manufacturer's website to the support\downloads section and look for the driver downloads for that model board.

    I have an Sis 530 and had this problem too, just search google for sis 530 drivers and install one, or just install Windows XP.
