You should first install Service Pack 3 and DirectX 9.0c from the Windows update and then try the video driver again. Or better yet, download the latest driver from your video hardware manufacturer's website, most likely Intel, AMD/ATI, or Nvidia.

Thanks Phil.. unsure where to dl the sp3.. but will keep looking. DirectX wont allow me to download it.. really not sure what I am doing. After the guy wiped my computer after trying to remove a virus.. he returned it to me this way, and now nothing really works.. seems it needs something, but I have no clue what. Thank you for your help. I sure appreciate any help I can get.
