I am bored out of my mind. i want to play a game. my buddy gave me a card (NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700LE (128 MB)). but for some reason i cant get any picture when i try to play a game. everything works fine the game loads. screen goes black sound starts. but i get no video. the cursor will change to the game cursor. i can hear the sounds when it goes over the buttons. i can click on quit cause i know where it is and it quits. why am i getting no picture on any of my games. plz help i am [bleep]ing so bored. i have direct x 9.0c. and the video drive is 10/22/2006 6.14.10.9371. i have clue why it is not working. i also have tied older drivers, still no go
