Hi there, a few days ago my laptop wasn't booting up, so i went to a shop and he changed the harddisk, along with that, when i tried to start any game, it wouldn't start up, and i discovered that i have a standard vga graphics adapter (8 bit). I went to device manager today and updated my display/graphic/video card/adapter, and then i restarted my laptop so the changes could take place. When i restarted it, it launched and everything but after the windows startup screen, my screen turned black, i heard the voice you hear when windows starts up, but the screen just stayed black. I tried this method, ( it didn't work.

Any suggestion on how to fix this will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
