Question about Sony VAIO PCV-W20 PC Desktop
I had done clean XP home edition installation on the computer and i had tried to download the drivers for the computer and having problem with loading the video driver. everytime i tried to download driver, it fails, the display goes white and the system hang up. without the driver, i am not getting the widescreen full display. i am only getting a little square display. i am suspecting it might be a bad video card but i don't know. can you please help.
Are you sure that you are installing the proper driver, I mean are u installing the driver for windows xp? If you are not able to install in the proper manner. Do like this Right Click on My Computer>Manage>Device Manager>Display Adapters. If an yellow exclamation mark is shown then it means that you have not installed the driver and if its not showing any confilct (yellow exclamation mark)then you have already intalled the driver and your video card is also working perfectly. And the problem could be something else. If confilct(yellow exclamation mark) exits.. Do like this. Right Click on the exclamation mark>Update driver>Not at this time> Install from a specified location>make sure u have checked "search removable media..." and make sure that u have put the driver cd in the cdrom and click next. If you have put the correct CD then windows will automatically install the driver for your laptop. During the installation if system shows a message "This driver is not digitally signed..." Click continue anyway. If none of the above things work. Download the latest drivers from the net. -ShaC
