  1. To put it simply i dont have one. Viruses attacked our computer and graphics card i think? so we reinstalled windows and now i cant play games... IT SUCKS i have indentified the problem, As i said before we dont have a display, driver i uninstalled the nvidia one and then installed the one we from a download but it said there is no compatible hardware on your computer so now i got nothing not even the default drive. It doesnt recognize our graphics card which is probably why it says no compatible harware.

    I just want to play my games.. can anyone help me with this please???

    when you reinstalled windows did you reinstall your motheboard drivers? also in device manager are there any dvices showing a yellow question mark or a yellow triangle next to them?

    your motherboard should have come with a Cd containing the drivers needed for your board. if not, you can go to the makers website and download the drivers for your motherboard.

    If you are uncertain of the make and model of your Mobo download SIW and it will tell you.

    SIW and the video card

    You can check the SIW --> Hardware --> PCI and see the real name of the video card (Class Type = VGA Controller). Check also the "Sub System Device Vendor/Name" for more info.
    Thanks,
