Video card isn't advanced enough? It was.

Specs: Windows Vista
When I thought I had a virus, I erased everything on my hard drive... well, mostly. It's a Toshiba A300 laptop which used to work wonderfully, never had a problem. Now the video card isn't advanced enough to run Windows Movie Maker like it used to. I can't find updates on my computer, and there's nothing I know to do. "Hardware acceleration?"

Also, there used to be a little box that would pop up to open up webcam, it's now nowhere to be found and the microphone isn't working. Do you have any idea what I can do? I'm thinking I uninstalled some necessary hardware or something. Thanks.

You need to reinstall ALL the device drivers:

it's not an update as such, it's just the drivers are missing and you need to instal the graphics / video / display drivers (and anything else with a yellow marker)

Is there somewhere I can find that online? Is it free?

Doubleclick the link jam gave you in response #2.

Download ALL the drivers for your laptop and burn them to disk after you get the laptop working right. Save for the future. Good idea to add the manual in pdf format there too.

Why didn't you just perform a system restore once you deleted most everything anyway?

Thank you for the website, I now have my webcam working the way it did... but I'm still having problems with the video card. While on that Toshiba site, what should I be looking to download? What's the file called? I tried to get a display driver... then extracted all the files, it's so complicated and won't work. I also don't know if that's the same as the video card requirements thing. Thank you for the help, but if you could tell me what to download off that site so my card will be advanced enough to run movie maker... I would love you forever.

"To start and run Windows Movie Maker, the video card on your computer must support DirectX 9 with video drivers for Windows Vista drivers."

"Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because it is not possible to turn on analog copy protection on the output display. Try installing an updated driver for your video card."
