Just be blunt, euegore. No need to butter him up.
MANNI02, my best advice: go back to the manufacturer website when fresh and wide awake, as opposed to tired. Read instructions slowly, carefully and thoroughly. Be patient. Find model numbers and serial numbers where required.
Download PC Wizard and install it if you have to. It is very good for finding information about your hardware. After determining the correct driver update download it. You may need to UNinstall your old driver first. Read the directions at the manufacturer site as previously stated. Again, patience will help your chances of success. Do not be a hasty mouse clicker - bad trouble-causing habit! In Spore you can go to settings aand restore defaults. The game is pretty good at selecting the best settings your machine will support. Let us know how you make out and take it from there. BC
