* If you plan to receive only (for example, in a distance learning session), almost any PC purchased within the last three years should work.
** If you bought your PC within the last five years, you almost certainly have graphics acceleration. To be sure:
- Right-click on your desktop and choose (Vista) 'Personalize' or (XP) 'Properties'
- Choose (Vista) 'Advanced Settings' or (XP) 'Settings' then 'Advanced'
- Choose 'Troubleshoot'
- If video acceleration settings show on the 'Troubleshoot' tab, you need not make any changes.
