You need to install the drivers for your video card. The trick is to find a place to download them from. Unless of course you have the driver cd tucked away somewhere. LGS indicates lucky goldstar chips who no longer exist.
When you first boot up your pc the very first screen to come up is info about your graphics card. Sometimes it flashes by so fast you barely get a glimps of it. Sometimes it's there long enough to at least get the manufacturers name.
You can try the pause key when the screen comes up to see if it will pause it so you can get the info.

Thank you thank you so very much....... Ok I've got the numbers I need and even have the driver. I don't mean to sound stupid but hat do I do now, I mean do I have to do anything except try to get windows to let me install? do I need to change anything before I do this? The card is already in whats next again thank you. Claudia

The best thing to do is browse the cd for a read.txt file (or manual if you have it) It will usually give the correct way to install. If a read file is not given then insert the cd. If it doesn't start up automatically, browse the cd for a setup or install file to get the setup going.

To start off right check in device manager to be sure standard adapter is the video driver listed. If not, install it and then begin the correct driver installation.

Hope it works for you.
