I've had a similar problem on my Dell Studio laptop. Windows Update will force an update to the graphics card driver, and the result will be full of bugs. To fix, consult the graphics card's manufacturer website (Intel, nVidia, AMD) and download the correct driver for your graphics card. Uninstall the current driver using Device Manager (Windows Vista/7 just type in "Device Manager" to the start menu search. Expand the Display Adapters section. Right click on your graphics card and select uninstall.) You should then be prompted to restart your computer, do so. Once your computer has rebooted, install the new driver downloaded from the manufacturer's website, after it installs you should again be prompted to restart, do so. Once rebooted, problem should be solved.

If I helped you, please give me a 4 thumbs up rating. If you still need more assistance, comment back and I'll be happy to continue helping.

    It was a no go. I had the current drivers even before trying the solution you provided. Was worth a try though. From my research I beleive that a reballing of the gpu may be neccessary although I have had the gpu reflowed and it did absolutley nothing to resovle the issue. Any other suggestions, minus the things I have tried so far of course?

Spiderman friend or foe doesn't work


The most common problem shall be that your system might not meet the minimum requirements that the game needs...If you are sure that the requirements are met then you shall try to get another fresh copy of it as this may be corrupted.....If the minimum requirements are not met you can emulate the graphics that is needed for the game using 3D analyser....

I have a nvidia geforce 9400 Gt graphics card how can i overclock


Read this...

You're not going to get a lot out of that card, it's pretty stripped down being a 9400. Anyways, download Rivatuner then after it detects your video card it will update your registry which will allow it to manipulate your video card.

You then use it to increase your Memory and Core clocks, and also the shader clock in VERY small steps. Increase it by perhaps 20MHz then try playing the most visually demanding game that you own and play it for like 5 to 10 minutes and watch for anything out of the ordinary. When you've pushed your card too high there are obvious signs, like random pixels flashing across the screen, textures showing up wrong (colours where they shouldn't be), or your game can simply lag or crash.

Also download Speedfan and monitor your GPU temperature closely. See what it idles at normally, then use Rivatuner to increase your fan speed to somewheres around 75% and make sure that the temperatures don't pass 70C.

Overclocking voids warranties and you can damage your graphics card if you push it too hard. You have to be careful and watch for signs that it's being pushed too hard. Also, you have to make sure that you set your clock speeds back to normal when you don't need the extra power. It's easier on your card then running it at 120% or something permanently.

When i try to overclock the graphic card using the ATI CCC software, the computer hang and the screen turns completely green. Even a very minor increase in clock speed can result in this.


Just to let you know, an integrated graphics chipset cant be overclocked. If you are using a pcie graphics card there should be no problem- what make/model is the card. If the card is Nvidia you can use Ntune or if it is an Ati card you could use rivatuner

Graphics


Use the latest graphics driver to correct this issue. if your video card is onboard look for the model of the board in download the driver in the internet. Also if you have external video card try to re install the video card driver to fix the problem.

Note: If you continue to experience issues running the game with the latest graphics driver, try running the game with the -w switch which forces the game to run in a window.

Check the temps of your card using rivatuner and the cpu with speedfan to see if they are overheating.

Are you running either overclocked?

Overclock MX440 64MB in Vista


to be honest, the MX440 is rather outdated, especially with only 64mb sdr, to make gaming experience better graphically, the minimum card you will need would be 256mb ddr and no doubt windows vista would look better also.
