    Hi there,

    Your current graphics driver is not compatible with the Windows 8.

    You need to download the latest graphics drivers in your PC to see the full high speed performance of the graphics.

    You can get the latest drivers from :

    >> Your system's vendor

    OR

    >> Windows Update.

    you can find Windows Update in control penel.


    thank You..!!!

    Hi,

    Basically Windows8 is a much sophisticated software which is fully capable of handling every computer related issues.
    It has its own driver softwares to display whatever is on the screen and that too perfectly.
    The driver you had installes from outside is an old version compare to the newer windows drivers.
    Now you have a couple of options.
    a) you can run the system using windows own driver ,
    To do that enter device manager and find installed devices, where you need to disable the driver and exit , reboot.
    b) You can download a fresh copy of the cards own driver from the company`s site and install.
    Thank you.
