Ibm thinkpad r31 windows vista video drivers


The OS will ,USUALLY, apply a generic driver to the Graphics Adapter, and most essential components. Not always, but usually, when it boots the first thing you do is Windows Updates. You may have problems with some hardware when doing a OS upgrade.It can be tricky. If, say, you jump from XP to 7, you may be able to use vista drivers. Your in luck, on the ThinkPad R31 support website Vista and Win 7 drivers are available, SEE: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&DocID=HT072387 Go with Win 7, if you have that option.

Why nvidia graphics not supported to my window 7 ultimate


NVIDIA refuses to roll out drivers supporting Graphical Processing Units that where designed for windows XP and Vista due to known issues with the Windows Vista Operating System misusing system memory while processing graphic data. This has imposed a problem with constructing drivers for windows 7 as they completely removes aspects of windows that are crucial to to those components continual function. Your best Luck is to roll your video drivers back to how windows originally installed them and ignore windows update's assurance of newer updated drivers.
If this doesnt work, then windows xp will start calling your name very shortly (still my fav OS of the decade) GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!!!

Video Adapter for ati xpress 200m


Toshiba don't do drivers for XP. The ATI website states the following

Advisory:
The display driver supplied by the laptop manufacturer is customized for the built-in flat panel display, and the graphics features and functions specific to the laptop. It is strongly recommended to use the supplied drivers.
If installing a different operating system other than the one included with the laptop, the laptop may not meet all the requirements, and supported drivers may not be available.
The laptop manufacturer is the exclusive provider of driver updates. If the required driver update is not available at the laptop manufacturers’ website, it is recommended to contact the manufacturer directly, to see if an updated driver will be made available in the future.
AMD cannot provide driver updates directly from AMD.com.

Not all PC are capable of running Vista at its full potential. This is not a Microsoft fault, but equipment manufaturers not supplying the drivers for older hardware. I recommend you to run the Vista Upgrade Advisor from the Microsoft website, to see if your laptop can run (that flavor of) Vista.

Vista to xp


You should first try acer's site, assuming that they actually created the drivers. I tried once to do the same but some of the hardware's drivers proved to be useless... It is best if you find the drivers at the acer site, as it is much more reliable than other places in the net...

Upgrade Problems with Graphics


Download both the chipset utility and the video driver for your video card. Upgrading the OS to Vista doesn't automatically install all the required drivers, the chipset should be installed before the video driver

Toshiba


If you upgraded from XP to Vista and didn't exceed the minimum system requirements for Vista, then that is why your laptop is "struggling to work". You should have done a compatibility check before the upgrade to see what upgrades you might have needed to install Vista, such as RAM (usually adding the maximum amount of RAM that your MotherBoard will accept/recognize will get you going with Vista. Otherwise to get your laptop back to speed you can reinstall XP (XP runs on a lot less resources than Vista requires). You mention a graphics card, and I can't imagine one that would require you to upgrade to Vista yet, though I could be wrong.
Good Luck.
