Her brother installed things and had no problem bar needing an adapter cable, I assume a dvi to vga cable.
Only issue is apparently she's having problems playing Sims 2. Her desktop res is fine but she says Sims 2 is only letting her choose a very small resolution, guessing 800x600 or something, so everything looks huge and apparently by the sounds of what she says "no smoothness", things have jagged edges to them. Apparently the option to pick the resolution is greyed out as is some sort of "smoothness" bar, which I assume is the games version of picking the level of AA.
Now since her in-built graphics handled this game there's no way she should be doing worse. Her brother said the computer detected drivers and installed them so he didn't use the CD.
Is it most likely the fact she needs different drivers? I'm going over Tuesday so I'm going to un-install the drivers windows has installed and get the latest version drivers and version of CCC for her card.
Are there any other reasons this could be happening? PC can't power the card for instance? Though I'm not sure why that would cause the game to not allow you to select a higher res..
