Well, that sums it up in the topic description. How do I change my VGA? I have NVidia GeForce4 MX. I don't ever remember changing it, so I'm not sure how this happened. I am the only person with access to this computer. Direct X claims I'm using a generic VGA. It says to install the VGA provided by the hardware manufacturer. Of course, I want the best VGA. NVidia came with the computer out of the box.

If Windows XP, download this:

If not, go here:

Select "Graphics Driver", "Geforce & TNT2", your version of Windows and click Go.

This is troubling. After I downloaded the NVidia driver for people who have it on their systems, I was unable to use it, as my system or whatever makes it work could not find any NVidia items on my computer!!! Where are they? Where did they go? I haven't changed anything. My computer even asks for the original VGA installed by the hardware manufacturer. I still have a sticker on the front of my tower that says I have NVidia GeForce4 MX. It seems like something must have happened to it. Unless Direct X is calling this a generic VGA. I can't figure this out.

Any ideas?
