Ask for additional help before you close a question and assign a grade. We are glad to provide further information or help.

Run SIW and look under the PCI heading for VGA Controller information. Post make and model of VGA adapter here.  http://majorgeeks.com/SIW_System_Info_d4387.html

I thought video driver was included in chipset drivers for ATI on-board video. Apparently it isn't or you have an add-on card.
