go to your computer manufacture website and get all of the drivers for your computer...install the chipset driver first...then the video driver

when you go to that link first click on the arrow beside select product from the drop down menu select (notebook)...then do the same for select series and pick your model series...
then do the same for select model number...then click on the green search button right below the arrows...select the operating system you use and then click on search...
when there if your not sure which drivers to get ...get a screenshot for me and I can tell you which ones to get

if you don't know how to post a screenshot...go here...
