Pls guys i saw this forum as one of the tops on google, am new here and hope u guys can help me out..

A friend of mine gave to me a compaq evo n610 notebook.

Then i used dxdiag to check for the graphic card...
but this is what i found.

which means no graphics card if i am rite, but may i ask where the graphic card is on the notebook, so i could check it out, or what should i do...

Sounds to me like the drivers weren't installed and you're using the ones that came with Windows. So basically you're getting only basic functions, nothing beyond that. Try downloading and installing the driver's from the manufacturer which you can fin here:

Compaq Evo n610c Notebook PC*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center

Just choose your appropriate OS and there you go. Let us know how that does,

That's strange. Have you tried doing it from safe mode?

When you look up Display Adapters in the Device Manager what does it say you have? Try uninstalling whatever it is and then running the driver package from HP.

It could be that you have to force install the driver.

Make sure XP is fully updated. Windows update may have a driver for you. I wouldn't hurt to have the latest Directx installed.
