Graphics card problems. Please help.
I downloaded amnesia for my son and the game wont start. Screen goes off and on a couple of times and then i get message to check my graphics cards are up to date. Tried several times to download updates but cant figure it out. I only have a very basic level of computer knowledge so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

If it is just the graphics card/s, then try this:
1. Open up the start menu and right-click computer
2. Click on the 'Manage' option and wait for the screen to load
3. Look on the left and click on 'Device Manager'
4. Look for the 'Display Adapters' submenu and either double-click it or click the little arrow beside it
5. Right click the option (For me it is Intel(R) HD Graphics -- This/These is your graphics card/s)
6. Click on the 'Update Driver Software' option and when it loads up, click on 'Search automatically'
You are done!
This will update your graphics card to the latest software version. If there are any other problems, I may be able to help.

Thanks a lot but i tried all that. Think the laptop is just not able to play it. Online test fails on video card. Very annoying as laptop is less than 3 years old. Thanks again pal.

The problem is the laptop. Amnesia uses OpenGL which is not friendly with most laptop graphics chip/card.
