    You need to post the MFG, and the model # if you want someone to find the drivers. Games do not go by drivers of the hardware, they go by hardware, are you sure that your hardware meets the minimum requirements. Are you sure the game can run on XP. If you post back the information about your computer I can check the driver downloads for your unit.

You need to give more information on your system to get the driver. The manufacturer's site is a starting place. Go to the Device Manager (Control Panel, Hardware, then Device Manager). Expand the line display adapter - that will give you the type of chipset/card that you need to look for on the appropriate site.

Alternatively, right click on any part of your display that doesn't have an icon or open window. The properties link will let you change the resolution and such. You will need to look at the advanced settings for the adapter and the driver properties. (This will include the manufacturer of the card).

However, most of the cards have the chipset from either Nvidia or ATI but the card has another manufacturer's name on them. In that case, you may want to check that particular site for any drivers.

I hope this helps.

(if your video is only provided by the motherboard, the above device manager directions will give you that information. However, if any driver updates exist, you will need to look for the motherboard site instead.)

You need to post the computer, posting what operating system you have does not help.

The drivers go by your motherboard and OS not just by the OS.

Your computer is Not a XP PRO SP3, this is an operating system not a computer.


A computer is a DELL, HP, or a REAL computer with a ASUS motherboard.

Old drivers on xp sp3 cause blue screen and windows crashes all the time. It also gives the error stating ATI control panel.exe ended unexpectedly and get a 600x400 graphics. Nees the latest drivers...


Go to the AMD website (they bought ATI) and surf for the video/drivers page for the downloads. Also, dig deep on the page and go through all the known issues section - ATI does an excellent job of documenting when a computer/software/graphics combination has a problem.

Also check the Tosiba website for the same information- manufacturers often post "patches" for known problems.

Good Luck!

On call of duty world at war the game blinks and the back ground goes all garbled


You may need to install the latest graphics drivers. Find them either at nvidia.com or ati.com. If you have intel integrated video it probably can't handle the game.

Laptop crashes every time I play a video game


Have you made 100% certain that you have the right driver. The laptop versions of nVidia cards are different to their desktop counterparts.
They use the suffix of "go" and the drivers normally have to be obtained from the laptops website.
