I have recently had my pc reformatted. It is a second-hand PC. I am not sure about the specs - but it says - Compaq SVGA (its already 3 years old!). However, the one who reformatted my pc forgot to re-install the drivers for my video graphics card. Now, I cant access an Online game because of my problem. On my Device Manager window, I can see a yellow exclamation mark on something called "Video Controller (VGA compatible)". How do I resolved this? Thanks very much.....

Re: Video Accelerator Graphics Card
Now that you've reformatted and added drivers again its better to download the latest drivers either from your computer manufacturer's website or the website for your motherboard. If that doesn't help, you can get VIA drivers from http://www.viaarena.com. only then games wil be compatible. hope u find this udeful. thank You.

You don't need to disable any driver, unplug, use ESD protection, install Graphics Card, move the monitor cable to the new card,(you may have to boot on the old monitor connection and install driver), install the driver for the new card and reboot plug into the new card. Do your windows updates to obtain the latest driver. You can open the Device Manager, open Display adapters and disable the Intel graphics adapter. Is it a PCI or AGP Graphics Card? Remember: with a Aftermarket Graphics Card it requires more Power/Watts, you should consider a PSU upgrade. You didn't post the Make, Model Graphics Card, usually there is a Min. Power Spec. for the card listed on the box.
You can download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure you
select your model laptop and the XP or VistaWindows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click on this linkto download the drivers: - www.compaq.com/country/cpq_support.html
Hi, The problem is that your card sounds terrible. Either it is extremely
old and outdated (in which case get a new one such as the minimum spec
requirements on the box), you only have two options. The first is to take the game back, or the second is to buy a new computer or video card that supports the minimum requirements. It sounds to me like you are using the on-board graphics port, my advice would be to purchase a new graphics card, anything not under 512MB as most of today's games require 512MB as minimum.

A NVIDIA GeForce 6200 or similar will fit into the compaq slimline case. You need to get the slimline model, then modify the steel bracket to get it to fit.
