Go to the manufacturer site and get the latest drivers for it.

What is your video card?

~update~

Some old on-board chips arent officially supported by Windows 8, what requires a manual install in compatibility mode.

My Video card is a ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro. If this doesn't sound right, just tell me.

My Video card is a ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro. If this doesn't sound right, just tell me.

More information about the PC would be helpful. Is the card PCI, AGP, or PCI-Express?

The 2400 is an old card, and no longer included in the monthly Catalyst releases, but there are Win8 drivers:

AMD Catalyst

(These are 64 bit; there are also 32 bit. You didn't specify which version of Win8 you're using.)

You can download HWinfo32 portable to confirm your chipset:
HWiNFO32 Download
Just unzip it and run it. see screenshot below:

However, if it is the G33, I see no drivers listed for Win 8, so you may want to try the Win 7 drivers and install them in the compatibility mode (as previously recommended by vrosa);

Good luck.
