That means you're probably missing the correct driver for your graphics card/gpu chipset. Unless you happen to be logged in without administrator privileges

If you take the time to fill out your system specs and/or give an exact model number for your computer, it will go a long way towards solving your problem

Hello jamesyf, welcome to Seven Forums. Other than adding your specs, which is always helpful, give us some history as well. Is this a new installation/configuration that doesn't work? Is this an old setup that worked fine, and suddenly stopped working? Did you change anything, or experience something that may have triggered the problem? Any and all info is helpful to get closer to your actual problem. A Guy
