I am using XP in my Pentium 4, RAM: 256 MB, hard disk: 40 GB. I have not added any graphics card. It is built-in. I have Intel (R) Extreme Graphics. The problem is_ When I want to watch any high resolution movie, the screen become dark. Then I try to stop the player. then I discover that the screen has become fade, discolor.

It shows like negative effect and the icon becomes very large. Then I have to restart my computer. Again this problem occurs. Then in empty place of desktop, I press right button of mouse and select Display Mood > True color > 1024*756. Then the problem has gone. But when I want to watch that movie the problem occurs again.

I think that this problem is for graphics card. The solution is adding graphics card. But I want to know that is there any solution Or software that can solve my problem? No confused answer please.

Thank you.

I have faced the same problem earlier. Please check your Motherboard number (Pentium 4 Intel #) and then download graphics card for that.

I have tried to find graphics card as you described. Please find and download win2k_xp14103.exe. Hope it will work.

Great thanks.

Hi good day,
 
Please don't use the built-in video card because this is the cause that your screen becomes dark, fade, discolor and give negative effect of the icon to resolve this kind of issue.
 
Use another video card, and put it into the VGA slot.
 
The spec of video card you use is 64 MB, 128 MB or 256 MB with 128 bit. This video card is compatible with your system hardware and please select this three spec that you able to use. 
 
Thank you. Hope its help.
 
Regards,

What movie player are you using?
 
If this particular problem occurs only when watching hi-resolution movies, then the problem may not be your video hardware.
 
First, check Windows device manager and see if there are any "!" symbols in any of the hardware. If there are, please reinstall the driver for the faulty hardware.
 
Second, install the latest drivers for your onboard graphics.
 
Third, reinstall the movie player that you are using preferably using the latest version.
 
Fourth, if problem still occurs, try a different movie player. There are many free alternative movie players out there such as: Media Player Classic, VLC Media Player, KM Player and many others that are freeware.
 
Hope this helps.

Try uninstalling your video card, might be that its software is corrupted. To do this right click “My Computer” and click on “Properties” and then click on the “Hardware” tab then “Device Manager”. On Device Manager Window click on “Display Adapters” then you can see your built-in graphics card listed.

You can uninstall it from there and restart your computer. Once restarted the graphics card will be detected by your computer it will then ask for the installation disk. You need to have your motherboard’s installer CD for this. If problem is still not resolved try to reformat and reprogram your computer.
