    Uninstall it...and then restart your computer as suggested by Windows, and the computer should recognize it. By the way, why did you disable it :confused: ?

    I'm sure there is an easier way, but I'm not going to suggest anything that I'm not sure about.

    Well yes, there is an easier way rather than reinstalling it.

    You disabled it, so you can simply just re-enable it...lol

    Go right-click My Computer>Properties>Hardware(tab)>Device Manager

    When in the device manager, your disabled video card should appear with a red "X" on it.

    Now just right click the video card listed and click enable.

    Both ways these guys suggested should do the trick,
