When i upgraded my windows xp to vista about 5 days ago it somehow screwed up my computer. My graphics are so bad that i can't play simple games and i know that my graphics card used to work perfectly. I just need to know if it is vista that has changed my graphics card and if it did how can i fix it. Also for Hardware Acceleration, i can not turn it on because i do not have the troubleshoot option in my display settings. My nero will not burn any dvd disc's due to that. Any help will be greatand thankyou in advance. here are my specs:

Hi johnletcar,

Have you run the windows experience index yet? Do that and make sure you have your display set to 32 bit.Right click on the desktop and go to display properties. Check the Device Manager and see if you have any problems in there. Maybe you can check to see if you have the latest driver updates.

Go to the control panel-system and run the WEI.

You need a new video card. Sorry, you do. Vista desktop won't even right with that card, certainly not Aero. You don't have to mortgage your house to get one, but get a new video card. Your problems will go away, in this area.

PS, judging by the age of your card, I'm wondering about your computer...

edit - You also don't have any hardware acceleration on that card

It's kind of hard to recommend a video card when I’m not sure of what type VGA bus slot you have? Your current card says PCI, but I don’t want to assume.

Also, did you install any video card drivers? And can you tell us what kind of motherboard you have?

And did you have someone look over your computer before upgrading to Vista? Again, judging from your video card, I have a concern that you may not have enough system to run Vista.

Lastly, if you're unfamiliar with your computer then I recommend you have someone look it over and give you a good assessment of what you may need, including the video card.

Let us know.
