I've got a problem with the software that runs my videocard.

Simply, I can't play my games and i need some distraction.

I'll show you some screens.
See the attachment.

For all help, thank you.

Oh, I am absolutely not an expert, so try to keep things really plain.

Device Manager is telling you that the driver (the controlling software) for your video card is not installed, that's why the name of the video card is not shown. The system is having to use Windows built-in standard driver which is unable to configure and use all the memory of the card. That's why you can't play the game. You should have a CD somewhere with the video driver on it, which you need to install. Otherwise you can identify the video card by downloading and installing this: Everest Home Edition http://www.snapfiles...et/everest.html

Look in the list that Everest shows until you find an entry for the video controller. Write down the make and model. Now go to the maker's website and look for the 'support' - 'drivers' section. Find your make and model and download and install it's driver.
