Go to start > All programs> Windows Update and update your system.

Also, you can go to HPs support site and download the drivers for your system.

Look under optional updates, if windows cant find the drivers for your hardware, then you need to manually download them from HPs website. Sounds like you need your graphics/video driver.

It's always good to be up to date, but I think what you need is the graphics/video driver from HPs website.
