I have tried to up date the video driver with no success in finding one.
Model & Serial # Aspire One D257-13473,

I would be interested in your connecting to my PC, but, understandably, a bit hesitant.

I apologize for the delay i wasn't online when you replied.Thank you for the model details.

You do not need to take the remote support offer pop-up shown in the site that is not send by me its from the site.I mentioned this in the my first reply i believe you didn't notice.

Please try to update the driver using this link : -

If the above driver is not updating then use this Intel driver update utility which will detect your VGA and chipset driver and show you whether you need to update it VGA or Chipset. If it shows to update only update those two.To get Intel update utility please use this link : -

Check it and let me know the result.I wont be online today but if the above doesn't work let me know and i will open this to other experts so that they can continue to work on this issue.
