    Do do you have a video card installed on the computer in question??? If so reinstall your driver for the card.

    just reformatted......

    What is the computer? What is the operating system? Windows 98? XP? If you can figure out what the system is we could all be a bit more helpful.

    Try to determine what the video system is. Do you have a video card or integrated graphics?

    You will need to reinstall the video driver to get full functionality of the video system.

    Hope that helps you get started

    check your documentation or any driver cds that came with your one will be able to help you without knowing which system you have.
