Odd... But I guess it works. So, back to the OP.

To start, we need to know what you have for a video card. If you don't
know, from Linux you can run a terminal (Applications --> Accessories
--> Terminal) and run "lspci | grep VGA" without the quotes. What that
does is LiSt the PCI buss, then pipe the output to the program "grep"
and filter for a line with "VGA" in it. Then post back what you get.
