  1. Yes, the drivers are the issue. Why exactly can't you install the drivers?
  2. the thing is
    i bought a new graphics card
    put it in my pci slot and started my pc
    i get hte display my windows starts up but the resolution is of 4:3 aspect ration
    but my monitor has 16:9 aspect ration
    so i thought it could be because i did not install then drivers
    but when i tried searching for the drivers from the nvidia site automatically
    it said i have the latest dirvers
    then i checked it in gpu-z
    the name should have been of my card but instead it is
    "standard vga graphics adapter"

    Don't search automatically.

    Do the manual search, select your operating system, download the drivers. Or install them from the disk that came with your card.
  4. i just solved it
    went t deice manager->update drivers->manual search->showed the path to the cd drive
