My daughter has been trying to play some games on my pc but the monitor switches itself off goes from Green to amber with a black screen and we have to reboot, she still cant play the games. I have Windows 2000 and Radeon 9250 graphics card. I dont know if I need to update the drivers, but dont know where to start as it says to delete the old drivers and another file called DAO but I dont have this file, can anyone please help as my 9 year old wants to play her games.

Hi Nic1101

sounds like you need two things a monitor driver and a different graphics card driver that is compatible to either the game you are trying to play or windows 2000 you need to browse the games cd for a troubleshooting folder and it will list if there any incompatibilities with the radeon chipset for your card also i need to know the game name to help
