Alrighty, when I first got this laptop (an Acer Aspire 3000) I used to be able to play 3d games such as Open Arena on this computer. Then I played with the Display settings and now I have no adapter, 2 options for res' 800X600 and 1024X768.

Any help of which drivers to install would help.

I'm running XP Service Pack 3.

If you need anymore info or Screenshots, I'll be happy to provide.

Do you have an actual model number? 3000 is probably the series.

can you go to system> device manager> display adapter in your control panel and let me know what video chip you're running?

Hey sorry it took me so long to reply, I kinda forgot about my topic -_-

Device manager says its a SiS M760GX.

It also has a computer screen with a red cross over it, I just googled the name and am trying to find some drivers now.
