Hey Slammer.. oh my gosh thanks for the help!
I logged into my device manager... under display adapters is:
Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
However, under other devices..
it lists 2 unrecognized video controllers.
I tried to update the drivers
.. and got this message.
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
There is no driver
selected for the device information set or element.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.
Windows suggests i find out the name of the manufacturer to download a driver.
Im really clueless now...
