Question about Computers & Internet
The firs step is to identify your specific video card:
1) Right click on the desktop,
2) Chose properties
3) Chose settings
4) Chose Advanced
5) Chose adapter
Write down all the details.
You can also get additional information by:
1) Right-click on my_computer
2) Choose properties
3) chose hardware
4) chose device manager
5) scroll down to: Display adapters
6) Right-click on display adapters
7) Chose properties
Again write down everything:
8) Now Google the net for your specific video card model.
9) If you don't get any good hits, try searching by the CHIPSET
10) Give preference to the original manufacturer's web site.
11) Another source is dedicated driver sites
12) Avoid all other sites, you could get a virus.
Once you find the correct device, make sure that you download
the correct driver for YOUR operating system (assuming WinXP).
Also download and read all instructions and read_me files.
You may have to remove the existing driver first, and reboot the machine, then install the new driver(s) in a specific sequence.
Before you make any changes to your machine, set a restore point, so that you can get back the old driver .
Right Click My Computer ==> Properties
==> System restore ==>
make sure the restore system is ON not OFF
and your system drive is included.
START => HELP and SUPPORT CENTER => Pick a task ==>
==> Undo changes to your computer with System Restore
(This is a misnomer, because it also creates restore points)
Follow the menus to create a new restore point
BEFORE you start to update the display drivers.
If you get into trouble, reboot using the "last known good
configuration" or "safe mode"
(Press F8 after the memory test)
and recover from the restore point if necessary
