Hi vivi,

At first glance, my guess would be the device driver of your video card is corrupt, or the incorrect driver is loaded... like standard vga. Right click on "My Computer" and select properties. This opens the system properties window. Click the hardware tab, and then click on the device manager button. This should open a list of things installed in your computer. First look to see if you see any problems... yellow exclaimation marks, or red X's. About 3 items down that list you should see your video adapter listed. Make sure the driver matches what you have installed. If it doesn't, you need to find the driver on the net, locate a driver cd you may have, or let us know what type of video adapter you have - and I will look it up.

I would suggest visiting the makers site, or a driver site like driverguide.com

Good luck vivi!

I need some idea of what type of video card your friend has. Is his computer a major maker's brand... like Dell or HP... or is it something built for him? I need a model number to go by. If it was self built, have him read the type of card it is off the card. Some makers have the make on the main chip, or white stenciled on the board.
