  1. Hi All,

    Newb here, was hoping you geniuses could help with the following:

    Im told by my friend (who knows a few things apparently) that my graphics card recently died, he removed it and now im running on my onboad graphics card?

    This however is not vry good as it does not even play an avi file without jumping etc, he advised getting the latest driver should hopefully solve the problem.

    Below is part of a Belarc report that i think says what type i have - could someone please link me to the latest motherboad/onboard graphics driver and briefly advise me howto install it.
