just reformatted my computer and my graphics card is messed up somehow. it's not as "clear" as before. when i try to play starcraft 2 it saids, "The videocard is not accessible because no display drivers are installed, another 3D application has exclusive access or the machine was locked. Please close any 3D applications or games and try starting StarCraft II again. Rebooting your system may also unlock the videocard. If the problem persists, for more information consult our support website." It was once of the clues that something was up. I installed the driver and the catalyst but don't think that's helping. when i go to device mangers there's an exclamation mark on my card. I googled this up and they told me to go to BIOS and switch it to PEG, so the motherboard can activate the graphics card but i do not see an option for that in my BIOS. is the windows 7 bios different? I'm going to post some images that popped up.

asus eah5770
AMD phenom II(x6)1055T processor 2.80 GHZ
4.00 GB ram
64-bit OS
1TB hardrive

The BIOS are on a chip on the mobo and basically independent of the OS.

If your PC is a self-built what is the make and model of the mobo. If it is bought off of the shelf what is the make and model of it?

The setting you are looking for should be listed either in the Advanced BIOS Features or the Integrated Peripherals heading.

The manual you should have gotten with the board should point you right to it. If you did not get a manual then one should be available at the Gigabyte site.

There is only one way to find out if that will solve the problem.
