To the OP - when you read this, kindly check whether you're actually using a graphics card or your onboard processor.
Start Menu > Search > Device Manager > Display Adaptors.
List what you see there

Thanks in advance*E
Unfortunately there is nothing on there called 'Display adaptors'

But tbh he should help up out a little more if he wouldnt mind and see if he can get a picture up of the inside of his pc which would help us a little moree ....
I could try doing that, but I will try the drivers you linked with me first then I'll get a pic of it

The NVIDIA one didn't work, it said it was not supported by my hardware.
However the AMD worked a tiny bit but there is still problems with it -
