    Of course you have a video card. Look at your system specs. It's probably an
    Intel onboard chip. Do you have a laptop?

    I Googled "Turbo C" and find that this is an ancient compiler.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbo_C

    So what is it exactly that you're trying to do? If you are trying to run
    this very old compiler in Vista (why?), it is not surprising that full
    screen isn't supported. Turbo C's native operating system was MS-DOS which
    hasn't been part of a Microsoft operating system since Windows ME.

    If you have some compelling reason to run an obsolete compiler, then you
    should either live with Vista's DOS emulation or use virtual software
    (Virtual PC 2007 or VMware for ex.) to create a virtual machine running an
    OS in which Turbo C will run properly.

    The problem relates to the Vista graphics driver model (WDDM)

    there are a few options to workaround this problem with full screen Mode. Emulators are one (dosbox)

    their has been a suggestion from microsoft that you install the xp driver version for your current video card.
