  1. Display Issues (Graphics Drivers?)

    My Dell Inspiron Laptop, with Windows 10, suddenly seems to have a huge display / graphics driver problem. Everything was working fine yesterday, but today I started my laptop, only to find many problems:

    1. I cannot adjust the brightness with the buttons on my keyboard

    2. The brightness options under Display Settings are greyed out so I cannot click them

    3. My cintiq display tablet is unable to show an image, (oddly enough it can still be used to move the mouse across the laptop screen, when I move a stylus over the cintiq surface. But it will show no image on the cintiq itself. This is a massive problem as I just got a cintiq to draw and animate for my job)

    4. I cannot play any computer games properly. When I try loading up one of my CD games (which worked just fine yesterday,) it says it is "unable to create a graphics renderer." When I boot up a downloaded game, it says "unable to initialize graphics system".

    I checked to see if there are any windows updates, but it keeps telling me that everything is up to date.

    One of these Errors (specifically for Zoo Tycoon 2, the game on CD that won't work,) mentions "speakers/headphones (Realtek (0x0256)". Realtek is a driver I used to improve the audio on this laptop, which worked very well, and made the audio sound much better than whatever driver came with the laptop. If this driver effects the visual displays, though, this is news to me. It has never caused any problems before. And I'm afraid to mess around with it, especially when I'm not sure if Realtek is the problem. And also since Windows updates is not offering me any replacements, no matter how many times I click "check for updates."

    These games, and my cintiq, and my brightness settings, all worked fine yesterday. Please help!
