for some reason i have suddenly lost the option of having 256/32 bit options. I was getting something that was telling me that VGA was not compatible or something of the sort but that soon stopped and the computer began to malfunction. It would start up until logon time and then the sounds would continue but the screen would be black. We have now reformatted the hardrive and reinstalled windows to be confronted with the same problem. I have no idea what to do - any help is greatly appreciated.

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

You will need to load the drivers for your video card and operating system..

You need to find the make and model of your video card..

Is it integrated into the motherboard or an add-on??

If integrated, then the drivers would be on the systemboard driver cd or on the motherboard manufacturers website..

If an add-on card, then you should have gotten the drivers for it on a disk ..
