    Computer building/upgrading 101, never use the CD that comes with new hardware always go onto the manufactures website and download the latest drivers. What CPU do you have, does it have onboard graphics?
  2. Yes it does have a onboard graphics card. I have an E-machine it is a et1352g-03w. It comes with a nvidia built in it. But I bought a aftermarket nvidia geforce gt 640 graphics card.

    Ok, like I said I would download the latest drivers from Nvidia's website. If you have problems you go fall back on the onboard graphics to trouble shoot.
