Default Graphics Card Fail??

um..even after i update drivers and ****, troubleshoot as well, if the resolution cannot get past 680x400 and 4 colors, and whenever i try to get all modes of the card, it says "bad data"

so does this mean gg for that graphics card?

What video card do you have? Is this a fresh install or has this just happened? Install the chipset drivers for the motherboard. If you are trying to install the proper video drivers (which I think you are not) then remove all video card programs and drivers from add/remove programs then use a Free Driver Cleaner then install the drivers. If its onboard graphics what motherboard do you have?
