Welcome!

Sounds like you do not have good drivers installed. Go into Device Manager, right-click on your graphics card, and select Update Driver.

Hope this helps,

If I knew your graphics card, I could find a driver online for you. Download Speccy, and let me know what card you have.

Thanks!

On second thought, try updating your chipset drivers.

Download the right chipset driver as listed by the screenshot you posted. Run the .exe and reboot.
