Video card driver

After downloading updates for Vista Ultimate I get the following message:
"Hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver, which could slow game performance. Make sure you have the latest video card driver installed and that hardware acceleration is turned on". Is there a way to see if my hardware acceleration is disabled? If not must I download a video card driver (or update) and if so where would you recommend I find one?

Enable hardware acceleration


Make a right click on the desktop and then choose Properties and then click on Settings.
Then go in Advanced tab and then click on Troubleshooting.
Here you must have a tick on Hardware Acceleration graphic card and put the No to full.
Then reboot your system and then check back again.
Hardware acceleration increases the performance of certain functions, mainly graphical functions, by putting some of the processing requests through the video card instead of the computer processor.
At times, hardware acceleration can cause problems or conflicts with a particular program or computer function.
You can disable hardware acceleration in order to troubleshoot the issue, or if you do not need the performance gain provided by hardware acceleration

Right click a blank area on your Windows Vista desktop.
Choose the "Personalize" option.
Click "Display Settings."
Click "Advanced" and "Troubleshoot."
Select the "Change Settings" button.
Disable hardware acceleration by sliding the acceleration slider all the way to the left.
Click "Apply" and "OK."
Depends on your version of Windows, but the directions in the middle of this page might help.

Medion MD 96340 Video Driver not working


Hmm..Can you please run a "dxdiag" & paste the output here? You need to enable the hardware acceleration which means that the processing will be done in the video card (GPU) as well as in CPU. It speeds up the processing.

What is the reason you want new drivers? Areyou trying a game that is not working? Did you check to make sure the game or software supports your video card? This unit only has integrated intel hd graphics which really doesn't support much of anything.

C language is not running in full screen mode


Windows Vista takes away a lot of support and convenience for the sheer attractive of flashy user interface. One major feature is the ability of open full screen window for command prompt shell in Windows Vista. When you attempt open or run DOS .com applications, .bat batch scripts or games that relies on command prompt, and including cmd.exe itself, you will encounter the following error message:
This system does not support fullscreen mode. Choose “Close” to terminate the application.
The lack of support for full screen DOS command prompt in Windows Vista is a big annoyance especially for those who still playing games for DOS and Windows 3.1/9x era, use legacy software such as WPDOS or programmers who frequently switch to command prompt to use DOS based programming language such as PASCAL.
There is no simple solution to this no support for full screen window in Windows Vista. In almost all possible workarounds, you are almost guaranteed that your Vista will be broken in some way, at least on the part on Windows Aero. You will lose the nice Aero Glass interface if you attempt any of these trick, plus other unknown side effects.
Workaround to Run or Open Full Screen Window Mode
Workaround 1: Use XDDM driver instead of WDDM driver for video graphics adapter
In another word, install the Windows XP video card driver for use in Vista. If the video graphics card hardware supports Windows XP driver, you can download the Windows XP driver for your video hardware and install it under Vista. However, be warned that using XP driver on display adapter may crash your Vista system randomly, so save your works before proceeding and use with care.
Note: This solution has been recommended by Microsoft in KB926657.
To install a Windows XP video driver under Vista, just follow the procedure listed in the guide below. The steps should work for both NVIDIA and ATI video graphics accelerator card.
Download the Windows XP driver installer for your graphics card from NVIDIA or ATI. Run the installation setup program just downloaded. Confirm any User Account Control permission warning when prompted. The installer will first extract and unpack the files required by installation to proceed to a folder/directory. Note down the path to the folder. For ATI, the folder for these installation files usually located in a directory with a name that resembles C:\ATI\SUPPORT\7-5_xp_dd_46743\Driver or C:\ATI\SUPPORT\7-5_xp_dd_ccc_wdm_46743\Driver, with the only different been the number to indicate the version and build number of the driver
