Sounds like the last time your a new operating system was put on your computer, the video card did not get drivers. For vga, Windows will use generic drivers if possible. Usually Windows recognizes video cards and installs the drivers. Occasionally, Windows does not recognize the video card, and you must do it yourself. Look up your laptop model online, and search for video drivers. Your best bet is from the manufacturer, or from Windows update, as you cannot always trust downloads from other sources. Depending on where you find the driver, and how it is packaged, you may have to either get it as an update, in which case it will install itself, or you may have to download it. I like to make a new folder when I do something like this - such as Jon on the C drive. Once downloaded, run the program and it will update. Make sure you have no other programs running. A reboot migh be needed. Sometimes these may be rather large downloads, so be prepared to wait if you have a slow connection. When done, I like to copy or move the update to a CD or DVD in case I need it later. Your games will not work unless they can tell which video card is installed, and if your computer is using the generic drivers, that is why they won't work.

I unable to play a game because VGA compatible device not found in my computer & i want to install this. How can i install this explain it? & i am using XP

VGA compatible device not found represents that either your bios couldnt recognize the VGA hardware or your OS pnp service couldnt initialize the Hardware for VGA. Either these cases, we should look for the level of Hardware detection at which it fails. If its an onboard VGA device, you may need to replace it with an addon VGA card based on the Mother Board compatibility and then try install it again. This should solve the issue.

Good Luck.

Computer crashes while playing games

try update your VGA drivers in the nvidia support page, or using software "drivers detective" or etc.
if its not work, u have to check your video card, maybe overheat..
or u can try to format your OS, it can be some support files are missing or corrupted....
or the last one, your VGA card is broken or maybe does not compatible with the motherboard u used...check the specification of it, whether the game, VGA, or motherboard u used
