i'm kind of lost here so i'm wondering if someone can help me!
I'm trying to play this game I installed but my computer doesn't detect what ever graphics card I have ever since I reinstalled my operating system. I was able to play the sims 3 before I reinstalled it so I must have a graphics card lol. I read somewhere you could go on your BiOS settings and try to configure it to auto detect your card there but I tried and didn't see any options for video or graphics card! I'm using a windows XP emachines desktop if that matters. Where do I go on my BiOS to make it auto detect? Or is that even possible? Yes I know I need a new computer lol.

Oh and also, I think the card I have is an AMD model but what do I know, I tried to download their auto detect thing and it crashes every time I open it so that won't work.

Are you connecting whatever cable you use to connect to your monitor, to the graphics card or the motherboard?
