  1. Do you mean video acceleration? If so, here are some illustrations. Just crank it to full.

    Dear Vishal,

    Thanks for the help. I followed up the steps but under the troubleshoot tab, the change setting button cannot be clicked. That is the computer cannot allow me to change the setting. The process therefore cannot be continued.

    Regards,
