Hello Monique. Do you know which is your graphics card? If no, you can easily check it. Start Menu --> in the open box type "dxdiag" (without the quotation marks), and click dxdiag.exe --> Display tab --> On the Display tab, information about your graphics card is shown in the Device section. You can see the name of your card, as well as how much video memory it has. To download the last drivers for your graphics card use one of the links below:

Graphics Cards

To find out what graphics card you have:

Select Start Menu > Run

In the command box type dxdiag and press ok

Click the Display tab in the window that opens

The top line under the section Device should give you the graphics card manufacturer and card series

 If you have a desktop with AMD (ATI) or Nvidia graphics card, use these links:

NVidia: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?

AMD/ATI: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.​aspx

 Input the details of your card or use Nvidia's auto detect utility if a Nvidia card.

AMD/ATI's auto detect utility is vailable here http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Page​s/auto_detect.aspx

You do not have to uninstall Nvidia drivers before installing new ones but it is recommended. You do have to uninstall AMD drivers before installing the new one. However, it's very simple and AMD provide helpful videos on that link.

If you have an Intel integrated chipset, use Intel's driver detect utility at http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect?redire​ctor_count=1&

If you have a notebook, you may need to download an updated driver from the notebook manufacturer's website, depending on the card. For AMD Mobility cards in laptops, refer to the links on this page http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/737-280​41SupportforATIMobility.aspx

For Nvidia cards in notebooks, Nvidia provide drivers from this link http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook_drivers.html

Hi Lynn,

You're posting on a very old thread. Probably would have been better to open a new thread so more people can read it and perhaps help and you can of course still do this. Only people who contributed to this old thread will see this. However, let's try and help. Can you please post details of your computer system, especially the graphics card (make and model within the series) as it's difficult to offer any solution without this information. Also, please explain what you mean by "unable to sign on". What happens when you try and does any message appear on screen?
