I gave you much more specific steps than that. I also asked you multiple specific questions to which you didn't even begin to reply. Why did you come here exactly if you ignore specific help we take the time to type out for you to try?

Sorry I just didn't really understand the questions and forgot to add that. Is the display card my graphics card? If it is, I have the GeForce GTX 650 and I don't know how to default to the motherboard chip and I don't have another card.

If you make it here with two hands we assume you at least have the ability to ask back questions and make sure you perform each step.

Look in Device Manager under Display adapters. What is listed and when you click on the Driver tab for each listing what is the installed driver, version and date?

You can also enter BIOS setup by tapping the key given for that on first boot screen (often F1 or F2) then look at each tab thoroughly for any onboard Graphics or GPU settings. This may enable you to temporarily disable the card to choose the Onboard graphics to see if the problem persists.

Sorry but I was starting with my reply and then my dad called me to help him so I replied quickly and forgot to ask. Anyway, under display adapters is Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 and the driver is Nvidia, the version is 9.18.13.4052 and the date is 02/07/2014. And I'll take a look at the BIOS setup now and get back to you in a bit. Thanks for your help

Most BIOS explain each setting when you highlight it.

In Device Manager Roll Back driver on Driver tab until you find one that works.

If not In Devices and Printers rightclick on the PC to set Device settings to Automatic. Then Check for Updates and install all important and Optional Updates. Does it provide a driver? Try that.

This driver is the first one I installed so I can't roll back and I did as you said and no driver updates came up unfortunately.

Try a previous driver.

I'd want to know for sure which one Updates offers so its worth uninstalling this one to check. If you get Standard VGA its only a placeholder which may need upping the resolution to work through. Then Enable Auto Driver Updating (explained twice) and install all Updates. There may be a patch needed too

Have you reinstalled the card checking the slots are clean and card is perfectly seated?

If you can borrow another card it will tell you a lot.

Wait for other ideas.
