  • Sounds like your video driver, try to get an updated driver from the Laptop manufactorer's website or the video card manufactorer's.

  • This laptop seems to originate in India. And after some searching. Found the support downloads. But they are geared towards newer systems. No legacy support for this laptop. Or drivers for linux. '

    But doing some research and booting into safe mode you can search a few places to figure out

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310126

    Shows how to navigate to the device manager.

    Then click on the display adapter. or right click on unknown and right click on each one. 

    You are after the hardware vendor #### and device id  ####. And searching for the adapter information. 

    a great resource for looking this up is located here

    http://www.pcisig.com/home

     

    Then its a simple matter of installing the proper driver from intel.com, nividia.com or amd.com.

    Ati was purchased by AMD. and still provides drivers for the video cards.

     

    This is slightly easier and more reliable then opening up the laptop case.

    Just remember older integrated graphics adapters might not be too fast.
