The driver for your video card is not installed and not already included in your operating system. Go the website of the manufacturer of your video card (or system manufacturer) and download the latest driver for your model video card.

I HAVE A GATEWAY PROFILE 4 ALL IN ONE HOW DO I GET THE VIDEO CONTROLLER TO WORK SO I CAN PLAY GAMES ONLINE?


Do you have the flash installed or the Silverlight software you may just be dealing with a flash issue a lot of games use flash online. Make sure you have the latest flash installed. The video controller is not the issue if you can already view items or pages online or watch streaming video online. Check that first? John

I downloaded windows xp professional onto my AcerPower FH and i put a Video card in it. For some reason i cannot find Ethernet Controller, Video Controller, and Video Controller (VGA Compatible) Any links...


Follow this link for Acer's driver download page for the Acer PowerFH computer.

1. Scroll down to Lan Driver. Unfortunately, there are three drivers to choose and only one will work. Download all three drivers, transfer them to your Acer PowerFH via a USB drive, and install one driver at a time until you find the right one.
(At this point you may choose to restart the Acer, check your internet connection works, and run Windows Update. Make sure to select Custom and not Express. After Windows Update scans your computer, select optional updates and see if it found any drivers for you to download and install. It's possible it may find all the drivers you need. If it doesn't, then you need to follow the rest of this solution.)

2. Scroll down to VGA Driver. Ignore drivers made by ATI or NVidia. Download and install the Intel drivers one at a time until you find the right one. This is the driver for the onboard video and not for your video card!

3. It looks as if you installed a different video card then the one that comes with the computer. For an ATI video card, go to this link. For a NVidia video card, go to this link.

4. Select the appropriate information in the drop down boxes and click Display Results or Search. Download and install the drivers.

5. Go back to the Acer driver download site and download and install any other drivers you may need for your computer.

Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and please post back to this solution if you need any more help.

No video output from atapi dvd rw after OS reinstall, cd rw ok


>> VGA controller (vga compatible) error in the device manager

Windows has not found a "good" device-driver for the "integrated" video-controller on your motherboard; it is using the "generic" adapter.

So, trying to download the "SIS Mirage Graphics" software is an attempt by Windows to download a "specific" device-driver that matches your video-adapter hardware.

You might try installing an add-in video-card, to see if Windows will install the correct device-driver, and still boot-up correctly.

Otherwise, take the computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting about your boot-up problem.

Installed new video card but the signal remains black


REMOVE THE CARD AND UNINSTALL THE VIDEO CARD IN ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS. THEN REMOVE VIDEO CARD AND INSTALL DRIVERS THEN INSTALL YOUR VIDEO CARD. I HAVE THIS SAME VIDEO CARD AND HAD THE SAME PROBLEM.THIS WAS THE ONLY WAY I COULD GET IT TO WORK. ALSO YOU NEED TO DISABLE THE VIDEO CARD THAT IS ON YOUR MOTHERBOARD. YOU CAN DO THIS IN CONTROL PANEL. ADMINASTRATIVE TOOLS THEN CLICK COMPUTER MANAGEMENT THEN CLICK DEVICE MANAGER GO TO YOUR DISPLAY DRIVERS AND DISABLE YOUR GRAPHICS CONTROLER. THAT SHOULD DO IT. HAPPY NEW YEAR.
