    Congratulation Joe! Microsoft is the best school on earth to learn Computer Science.

    Your graphic card was not recognize by Windows Ten. Give me more details about your computer? Will try 2 things:
    On the display adapter properties, click on properties and then on Driver. Update driver and choose Search automatically for updated Driver software. Hope you'll fix this issue?

    Recap: Search Windows/Display Settings/Advanced Display Settings/Display Adapter Properties/Properties/Driver/Update Driver/Online search. You must have an active Internet connection. Follow the process. If it doesn't work will try something else...

    You didn't properly set the attachment file: It's not shown. Are you running an upgrade or a clean install? Computer Details Please?
    Click simultaneously on the Windows flag and the Pause key: Paste the result (screenshot)
    O.K. I see it now! Will try another thing now... It's on the same page.

    We need to know the device manufacturer? Get the service manual to see it.

    To quote myself (post #6):

    This is slightly more complex: to find the hardware, double click on the adapter shown. In the windows that pops up, click on the Details tab. Under Property, choose Device IDs. I think you'll get a valid ID even if you don't have proper drivers installed.

    I hope that's clear now that you've found Display Adapters in Device Manager.

    I'm not 100% certain that you'll get the card's device ID, but it's worth a shot. It may be easier than sleuthing through your documentation, or taking the PC apart.

    You can Google the device ID (use the shortest listed one), and it's likely to be a common card.

    Choose instead Hardware ID. Device ID is not listed.under property. That was a good one Bob and it's always good to repeat ourself because we miss that one.
    Looks like that on Google if you copy the first line: PCI\VEN_8086REV_09 - Google Search

    Don't be discourage! Solutions seems to be complicated. Let's recap with the best I can do: Download CPU-Z (CPUID) and see inside your machine:
    Thank you for downloading CPU-Z from CNET Download.com

    It will be shown there.

    Where on that list is Display Adaptors please Bobkn...

    Can I just offer some info that was asked earlier...
    My PC is a Medion it has Intel Core 2 Duo ( this is all that is displayed on the outer case )
    and after that I'm sorry I don't know anything else about it...
    .......... other than ... I'm on a free download, I was previously running with W7 without any of the problems described earlier...
    So just a Q from me .... If the graphics card was OK then, why is it problematic now....?
    So sorry about this but I'm really appreciativel that 2 guys I've never met and probably never likely to, from the opposite side of the world to me, are keen to help..
    Cheers Joe

    Your resolution should be set to the Displays Default or native resolution. If you go to your control panel and click on display then show resolution it should say which is native.

    The display adapter will be after name using that program
