Need more info

Check device manager under display to see what video card you have. Also include what model # your HP is.

Kevin, How Do You Know??

The old adage still goes here..."If it ain't broke, don't fix it"..Is your current video driver broken?

In addition to answering Byker's questions, on XP, you can find the video card device, it's manufacturer, and driver version and date by RIGHT clicking on "My Computer", choose "Properties", then click on the "Hardware" tab, then click on the "Device Manager" button. When the Device Manager loads, then click on the + sign next to the "Display Adapters" listing. A specific video device will be displayed. RIGHT click on the specific device, choose "Properties", then click on the "Driver" tab. Write down the specific device EXACT name, the "Driver Provider/Manufacturer", the "Driver Version" and the "Driver Date"..

You can now visit the Driver Provider's website and download updated drivers that are appropriate for your hardware and operating system.

Hope this helps.
