OK, you are using the basic driver from the installer,

Code:
	Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
Have you checked windows update? That should give you a driver for it.

derekimo, thanks a lot but problem solved... direct X features are turned off as soon as there is a homegroup sharing center involved in the network options.

Good One.

Peace and Cheers...hour 8... HAHAHA! AGE OF MYTHOLOGY IM COMING!

You're welcome, you do need a graphics driver though.

I'm glad you found a work around but you should check windows update for a graphics driver.

The ones from HP are for W8 for your model so the next best option is windows update since it's a laptop.
