    oooh... you have an integrated video card ?

    okies...

    check in your control panel... check in display settings or something like that... probably intel IGP :)

    if you have your system install disks that came with your product you should have had your display drivers there...

    else... try doing a windows update and installing any display drivers you see there...

    a video card's hardware can only do what the software tells it to do... so if the format wiped your IGP's drivers... you will have to reinstall them somehow... or upgrade them... else you can't play openGL games probably...

    if you have internet explorer... click on the tools option from the toolbar... click on windows update and check the updates that show up (if any) to see if there is an option for updating your video drivers...

    also please let us know what make computer you have (ie dell or compaq or HP or something like that) and if you installed all the drivers from the system restoration disks that came with your product...

    considering the features built into my cards tuner and also teh capabilities of the GPU... I do not recommend buying anything lower @ this time...

    this video card is a monster... and I had the regular 9700pro card... :)

    this card just takes it to another level... the AIW features are breathtaking.. really...

    the recorded quality is stunning (yes it does take up space... but I can record direct to a cd... with little loss in quality :) )

    the zalman heatsink is a bit heavy... you have a cheaper version... the 3000 series... but it is not as good...

    I bought my zalman from there... usd 32 :)

    not being mean. just... pointing out a classic moment. :)

    homer, if you're still here, do you have any idea what type of video card you have? ati or nvidia? or is your monitor plugged into your motherboard, next to your keyboard.
