Question about Computers & Internet
I recently formated my hard disk to reinstall windows xp pro sp2.
After doing that my graphics card is not in the system anymore and I can't get my display back to wide screen and my remote control is not working.
I did try to install the original drivers pacage and utils from sony web sit, but it didn't make any diference.I don't have recovery discs and I don't know how to get to that hidden partition.
Please help me solve this problem.
My e-mail adress is email@example.com

Goto sonys website and download all the driver, then on your pc right click on my computer and goto properties and then hardware and then device manager, in here you should see all the driver that HAVE NOT BEEN INSTALLED PROPERLY, double click and point it to the drivers you just downloaded and it should automatically install, then reboot. thats what i did.

Download an updated driver from the graphics card (or integrated) manufacturer's website (Nvidia, ATI, INTEL, etc). Once you have the new driver, uninstall the old graphics driver, then install the new one (Do keep in mind however, you may have to double check your Bios settings, just in case that something might have changed. This of course is mainly for those cards that are integrated).

Have you tried the Sony website to download the "latest" video driver. I tend to avoid drivers that are on CD because you never know how old they are.
To get to the "hidden" partition in Windows:
1) Right-click on My Computer and choose Manage
2) Under Storage, click on Disk Management
3) In the lower-right you should see the hidden partion with NO driver letter assigned.
4) Right-click on it, and choose Assign Drive Letter or Change Drive Letter
5) Assign it a drive letter that's not already in use.
