    Hello Russman, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Do you have the latest NVIDIA graphics drivers installed for your laptop?

    Hi Brink, thanks for the quick response.
    I have geforce go 7400 on laptop hp pavilion dv6304tx, it says there are no current drivers are available for my configuration on the nvidia site and the HP support site

    I also just searched for current drivers and the search said I have the current drivers installed and no update is required.

    The latest official driver version I can find for it is the 179.48 for Windows 7.

    You might see if the 197.25 driver at the link below may work for you as well. Since it's for Windows 7, you may need to use compatibility mode to install the driver if it will not install normally.
