so what was your results from running WEI, another diagnosis tool is run dxdiag by typing it into your "search programs and files" , available when you click the windows orb, post some results or screenshots when your done

Are you both using Win7 32 bit? Does your cuz have the same chipset and installed RAM? Did you update your drivers through Windows Update when you installed or the manufacturer site? A lot of drivers have been updated since Win7 was released.

thanks, your drivers out of date, please download and install the "ATI Catalyst™ Display Driver for Windows Vista/Windows 7 32-bit" then let us know if that fixes your problem

If not please post your error message

the "change settings" is greyed out as your driver doesn't enable it, everything else you have shown me proves your graphics card is performing properly

the error code you show is specific to your game "maple story" I suggest search with google for "error code 2147287038" and theres numerous suggested cures mostly reinstall

I would try maybe running in compatibility mode for vista SP1 by right clikc the shortcut and pick compatibility tab and select run as vista sp1 ?

good luck with it
