I have just bought a second hand desktop running Windows 7 Professional. I have been successfully running a programme called Pictures to Exe on my 2012 Windows 7 laptop but it will not load on the desk top. There is an error message - Video Cardx9 or higher required.
Could you please explain how I get around this problem?

Thanks I did all of this apart from updating the drivers for the video card. Its a P4M800 Pro which comes up in driver updates as a VIA product but I can't see how you update the drivers.

Try drivermax to update the driver.

When installing drivermax watch out for bundled software that comes with it untick any optional software.
