That means nothing. It only means according to windows update your video card driver is up to date. (manufacturer told Microsoft/reported the updated driver) Try going to the manufacturing website. They usually have more up to date drivers.

For example, if it is an AMD card go here, If nvidia go here.

You did not post your system specs so I do not know what video card you have. That would helpful.

How did I miss that........thanks derekimo....


Okay, go to the amd link and update your drivers. I would use the custom install when prompted and install only the updated drivers. Restart and then rate your system with Windows experience index. Report what happens. Your system is more then adequate that you should not get that message.

Also can you please let me know what shows up here by doing the following:

Click type performance. Click performance information and tools. Click advanced tools. What is listed under performance issues?

Startup Programs are causing windows to start very slowly.
Performance can be improved by changing visual settings

Ive tried to download the drive via the AMD link, but right now I am getting a sever busy error message. I will try again probably tomorrow.

1.) Weird, works for me....I wonder if you have malware.....what security software do you have installed?

2.) You can try searching google for amd auto update. First result (not the ad result) should be correct.

3.)Could you post a screenshot of your startup programs?

Click click run. (or on your keyboard hit windows key + R). Type msconfig. hit ok. Click the startup tab. Post the screenshot so we can see everything in there. You might need to scroll down and take another screenshot.

4.) For better visual settings performance, do the following:

Click type "adjust the appearance and performance of windows". Click the top result. Click adjust for better performance, then click custom.

Checkmark everything except the following:

These should be unchecked:

-Enable transparent glass.
-Fade or slide menus into view
-Fade or slide tooltips into view
-Fade out menu items after clicking
-Show shadows under mouse pointer
-Show shadows under windows

Click ok. Restart.

I was finally able to download and install the drivers. turns out I did have the latest ones. I reinstalled it.

Should I leave my BIOS video setting at 128, 256, or Max?

Just remember that everything was working fine up until the last few months. It did it on my old video card, the Intgrated Video on the Mobo and now the new card.

I have Microsoft Security Essentials, and Malwayarebytes

looks like the Max setting seems to be working the best. It has not eliminated it 100% but it does cut down on the error message and the lag/choppiness of the Windows
