Graphics lost from Vista

My graphics have suddenly disappeared from Vista and I get critical error 'No suitable graphics device found'
Any advice gratefully received.

Start in Safe mode (hit F8 repeatedly before the Vista logo appears), select safe mode or VGA mode, go to Control Panel/Programs & Features, remove your video drivers, reboot. If you've started in VGA mode you'll still have internet connectivity - use this to find out what graphics hardware you have and download the latest driver. click here

Reboot and install the driver then check your Windows Update history - there may have been an MS driver update that broke your graphics - a computer I use on occasion has its wireless adapter disabled if I allow it to download the `Windows Update` entry for the device.

Hi brundle,

Many thanks for your help. I checked the graphics download and found a Java update in the last 24 hours, used system restore to delete it and now everything is back to normal.
