My friend built me a Window Vista computer couple of week ago and today I just received it. I'm having some problem with the graphics of the computer since I start using it. When I'm in a game the screen tend to goes black for an instance. The pictures doesn't look as bright and clean but it look blurry and fuzzy.

Can someone tell me whats wrong with my Vista and how to fix it?

Hi huMAC, I would be looking at the video driver update, ask your friend which driver he put on it for the video card.

You'll have to find out the manufacturer of the video chipset for your system. You can find this out by going to Start and typing in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Click on the + sign next to "Display Adapter" and you'll see something about nVidia, ATI, or Intel (among others). Let us know what it says and we can point you to the proper site to download the drivers.
