Go into Control Panel - Device manager.
Look to see what's listed under 'Display Adapter'.
If there is a !
or a ?
there, or if it says Standard VGA Driver instead of the name of the actual video card, then it means your video driver is not installed. You should, hopefully, have a separate CD with drivers on it which is supplied for an event such as this to save you having to re-install Windows just because one driver is missing or corrupt.
