Hello, my name is Steve and I have replaced many motherboards on laptops. If you have a display then hardware can be ruled out as the problem and the real deal is an .inf file that Windows cannot match or find. Every time I run across this common problem I first try to find the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) chipset drivers which is usually an executable (.exe) file and run that first before trying to update or install any specific display drivers. If you cannot find the OEM chipset drivers or they are unavailable then look on the motherboard itself and look for the largest alphanumeric characters which identify the motherboard and do a Google search for that character series which will at least give you a list of results naming the motherboard manufacturer like Intel, Asus, Matsonic, etc. then go to that manufacturer's web site and you will find generic chipset drivers for that model. Remember that being able to see the display means that Windows is using a VGA driver found in the .inf files. If you really want to see those files you must go to Folder Options, View then uncheck the boxes that say Hide System files. There will be scads of .inf files to see in the Windows folder but running the chipset executable will solve your issue. One more tip -Google searches will lead you to driver updates more comprehensively than Windows updates for hardware. The new Google Chrome browser is also a better search assistance since every character you type lists options for your search before you even finsh typing -helpful if you are unsure of what you are searching.

Since you can't install the driver, you can find them on the internet several methods:

go to device manager and update the video controller by automatically searching on the internet and wait if it did not find any appriopriate drivers you can manually search on the internet just make sure you know every details of the on-board vga so that you can specify what you're looking for i prefer useful sites for you:

softpedia.com
drivercollection.com
site of the motherboard's manufacturer

I unable to play a game because VGA compatible device not found in my computer & i want to install this. How can i install this explain it? & i am using XP


VGA compatible device not found represents that either your bios couldnt recognize the VGA hardware or your OS pnp service couldnt initialize the Hardware for VGA. Either these cases, we should look for the level of Hardware detection at which it fails. If its an onboard VGA device, you may need to replace it with an addon VGA card based on the Mother Board compatibility and then try install it again. This should solve the issue.

Good Luck.

Onboard graphic (vga) chip problem


You never said that you ininstalled the drivers for the cards. Try this:

Uninstall current graphics card drivers. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.


Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers. Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card, click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.

If this doesnt work, then your card is BAD.
Let me know how you make out.
