    That's going to be difficult since there is no onboard graphics. Now Graphics card are so cheap! Well in the UK they are you can pack up a one for around £29.99 and it will do the basic things. You better look into that since you will be stuffed as it stands.
  4. by onboard graphics i meant the gpu she already has. thats completely my fault.
