That's all there is, and they can't be downloaded either [missing or something]

I tried downloading the newest driver for my video card, didn't fix problem
I tried disabling, restart, and re-enabling my video card via Device Manager [safe mode], didn't fix problem
I tried Uninstalling and reinstalling my video card via Device Manager [safe mode as well] and it didn't fix the problem either.

Does that count as resetting my video card?
Any more advice?
Thanks.

reSEAT yor card. Take it out, put it back in, making sure that it sits flush and proper. Examine fan (if it has one) for spin, dirt or damage.

It's already got the latest driver installed

I couldn't take the video card out entirely, there were no screws, and I pressed down the latch, but couldn't yank the thing out >.< it came out a little, and I pushed it back in and heard a click.
That didn't help, and I'm scared to break anything... And the fan was fine

Download and save the latest video driver for your machine to somewhere you can find it easily,
I suggest the Desktop.
Ok Just go into the Device Manager and click on your Display adapter, then right
Click on your video card, then click Update Driver Software, choose
Browse my computer for driver software, and then install the driver that is
On your Desktop.

Sorry for double post
But does anyone have any more pointers? Or should I just take it to someone to have a look at?

Has anyone seen this type of situation before?
Or know where else I can get help from?

Thanks.

Will you do as I ask in the post above you and you might get somewhere.
Do you think I am sitting here for the good of my health.

We need to get rid of the driver that you have installed at the moment, because there is something wrong with it.

Ok I've done as jfar has suggested and its not really working, doesn't seem to 'delete' the existing one and replacing with the new one downloaded. It simply tells me to select the FOLDER where driver software is located, and when I click next, it simply says that 'Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date.' [In the attached pictures, it goes from the first pic to the second in like half a second without doing anything]

Also, sorry for the frustration and thank yous for the continued support and patience [and being nice]. Somehow I thought no one responded hence the 'double post' (which really wasn't a double post lol). I've just changed the setting to 'Instant email notification'

I really want to save reseating for last, because I'm not too confident about opening up the PC and can't seem to budge the video card despite holding down the latch etc. As well as still having warranty [which may have been voided now, but who knows ;P] but that'll be a lot of extra fuss.

Thanks again, please continue to support and tell me what I can do.
