A driver update for the video adapter may be sufficient without changing the adapter itself. Go into Control Panel, change to "Classic" view. Click the 'System' icon. Click 'hardware' tab, then click Device manager. Click the plus sign against 'Display adapters'. The make/model of your adapter should now be shown. Right-click and select "update driver". The wizard will search the MS website for a newer driver. However, it may not find one but that does not necessarily mean that a newer one does not exist. It just means that MS does not have it. In that case you need to try the website of the video adapter manufacturer.
