have you installed the proper graphics driver for your machine? you should be able to obtain this from the dell website. Support.dell.com

Try fully updating your pc via windows updates. It may install a proper driver.

Hi Thomas. Welcome to Seven Forum

If you done with the update. But still need the drivers, you can browse here Dell Inspiron Driver

Choose from a list of all Dell products --> Click Continue --> choose Laptop --> choose Inspiron --> you will see Inspiron 1464 on the list --> click on it.
Then you can choose the drivers according to yous Windows version.

Hope that can provide you more options in solving the problem.


Kevin

Edit: Well. just ignore this if you have solved the problem already
