Hi folks, I have just installed microsoft's Flight simulator X on my XP pc. On trying to run the "game" I am told that my Video Card Driver is out of date. I have down loaded Driver Detective but cannot see a video caard driver listed on the drivers discovered by the detective. Furthermore they want £30.00 to fix other "problems". Any advice on what I should do now would be most grarefully received
The pc is a dell dimension DN051 will I therefore have a Dell video card? (I assume graphics and video are the same thing, and in writing that probably display my depth of ignorance) if so how do I locate its description?
I'm at a loss to see where on MajorGeeks site where it shows "update your drivers". Sure you clicked on my first link? SIW checks your system for a lot of things, including hardware. It should report what GPU or onboard graphics/video card you have. When you get to the right site click on one of the links under the heading of "download locations".
I'm going to log off for now. My apologies. Time to sort out Christmas. Will look in later in the holidays. You'll need to identify the GPU so you can search for drivers. By the way SIW means System Information Windows. First link again for MajorGeeks; click here
Thanks rdave13 I am really grateful for your help. Your link took me to the MajorGeeks and at the bottom of the first panel is writen "improve performance up date your drivers" the last three words being in red underlined, clicking on that link led to the "perfect" result! in my first response.
