Hey mates!

hi can you not open the case and see what graphics card you have or run speccy to identify it. Speccy - System Information - Free Download
or go here and use option 2 Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

How about the box it came in, can you look at that ?

Seriously, just use the latest nvidia driver or run the auto detector.

Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

It really makes me wonder when people say they built their own computer and they don`t know what parts they used.

Don`t take this personal, it just Grinds my gears

I too don't know how one builds their own PC and doesn't know what hardware they used.

I think there is also another problem. The CD/DVD player and or it's connections. It should be able to read the driver disc that came with the Video card.
