Hello i am new to the form although not new to desktop repairs i have a 4.0 GPA in the stuff as well as Cert of Completion but i have a underlying issue that is F*** me over so i cant download any games nor do crap with the pc except browse.
I have put in countless hours repairing all the driver issues that came with this laptop computer that my wife got me for Christmas how ever one day i was online on fiesta and the boom! the game wouldn't work at all anymore!
I cannot use any stock basic games that i have played for years on the intel 945 Family chipset however my pc claims its equipped with Nvidia Geforce Go 7400 but my computer does not recognize it nor pick it up, when i switch tthe speed which triggers the driver to change from the Intel ( stamina) to the geforce7400 (speed) it instantly gets stuck on or wont switch at all til late.
Im my device manager however i noticed when in speed mode, it says that its a (STANDARD VGA ADAPTER) where many conclude once this happens the driver/card is [bleep]ed.
If someone can tell me where in my pc the Graphics card is located and compatible upgrades for this may be located i wish to spend no more then $100.00 or less on this repair.
Its a got [bleep] shame all these defective devices she buys way overpriced for half of nothing, sure i got the ram and everything else but thats useless without a functioning capable Graphics card to pull it, this pc belonged to another comp tech who i feel that had some shotty views on how to repair it correctly.
ive repaired over 18 drivers so far but this graphics is kicking my [bleep]
