You will need to determine the brand and number of the card you have installed in your computer, then visit the manufacturer's website and find the updated driver for your specific card.

What is the Model number of your laptop?

The model number can usually be found on the bottom of the laptop on a label with other numbers.

Don't apologize for being 15, your still a smart person I bet. :thumbsup:

Open up the start menu right click on my computer, click properties, go to the hardware tab, and select device manager. Under the device manager and look for a category named display adapters open it up and it should say what type of video card you have. Once, you find this out you can go look for your drivers. Once you find them, go back to the display adapters this time you should click on it and go under the driver tab and click uninstall. Your computer will reboot and once it starts up again it will say something like "found new hardware" just click on the drivers you downloaded earlier and the program should guide you through the rest.

Well, if you want to get into computers you have come to right place. :thumbsup:

Ok, thats good information. What that means is that you don't have the proper drivers installed for your Video Adapter. Can you download Belarc Advisor? This is a free little program that does an inventory on what is inside your laptop. Run that and it will tell you what we need to know to find your drivers.

When it is installed, look on the right hand side for "System Model" and "Display" and tell us what it says under those two categories.

Is there a label underneath with the Model number?

What operating system do you have? XP? If so you might get the driver you need from Windows Update. Let Windows Update finish and then look to the left hand side of the page for Drivers.

You can also go to this site and click Portables under Product, then Satellite under Family and in the Model box see if you can find the Model Number that matches the numbers on the label you found on the bottom. What you are looking for are the Display Drivers. Be careful and make sure you get the right one. If you do, then go back to Device Manager and the Other Devices will be gone and you will see a Display Adapter listed.

Let us know if that works for you.

That doesn't seem to be the right number in the post above, but you say the model number is on the sticker. Either look under the laptop or run Belarc and give the model number.

Is there any information from Belarc about the Display Adapter?

What is your operating system?

Try this driver. After you run it look in Device Manager again.
