I have weird problems while on the computer, and with help from an admin, he said it could be a corrupted video card.
This is the link to the topic with the pictures I posted:

Also, where can I download new video cards / find out which manufacturing my video card is?
Thank you in advanced,
Hydralisk

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on right for display / video adapter

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything

Click start then help and support, click undo changes to my computer, click create a restore point, name it so you can spot it easily

Well, the whole error thing is in Korean, and I don't really know what it's trying to say >_<
Also, the language download is set to english.

EDIT: This is what it says to my best translating knowledge.
"You cannot Install this driver on this computer. Detailed information can be acquired at the computer manufacturing industry. The installer is now closing."

What now? =\

The first step is checking with Intel support in case there is anything wrong with the file they have

Nothing is wrong with the file they have. What other possibilities are there?

You need to ask Intel why the file will not install

Okay, It installed successfully after reading the instructions in the Read Me. Now I have a "Intel® Extreme Graphics 2" icon on the bottom right...
I will come back if the problem persists, but for now, I'm guessin it's fixed. Thank you for your time.
