  • You most likely have a problem with your video display drivers. Did you recently install software or updates?

    Go to the Control Panel, and select "Device Manager". You can see if there are hardware issues with device drivers (if your video card drivers are messed up, you may have more than one). If you own a computer from a major manufacturer (Dell, HP, etc), you should be able to find device drivers by looking up the product and entering the serial # or SVC tag as well as the Operating System. If it's a custom build, or if you purchased a card that is added in, you can go to the video card manufacturer and usually find drivers there (and sometimes a lot of other really neat addons that can help you get more out of your graphics card).

    Best of luck!
