Which system are you using? If you are using Windows 7, do this:
Go into your compter (usually a little icon that is a monitor) and then (if you are using Windows 7, but it should be basically the same in XP) and then click "System Properties" on the top left corner of the "computer" area. It'll bring you to a page that should look like this:
The part in red (
is your systems' specs. If they don't match or go higher than what is required of RPGXP/VX, then you will need to udate your PC with actualy graphics/videos cards and RAM.
And then, on the bottom left you will see the underlined words (underlined in red) click that. If your score is low, or if there are some missing in the video graphics part, than it is your PC. Try to rate your PC and then update your drivers. You know how to update your drivers, right?
If you don't, here is a good place that explains it quite well.http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproble...s-windows-7.htm
If you are still having trouble with updating your drivers, I can try and help.
Also, what are the specs of your PC? Do they meet the requirments of RPGXP/VX? What kind of video/graphics card are you using? How is your monitor set up? To check your monitor, go to the control panel of your PC and then click "DISPLAY" and see if you have anything not set up correctly to fit y our monitor. OR right click your desktop and go to "Screen Resolution" and then set it up correctly.
