Your problem is beginning to bug ME!

Did you install the motherboard drivers when you reinstalled the operating system? This is the only thing that I can think of that may need doing from your description (you didn't mention doing this).

If not, try doing that. If you don't have your disk, try a Google search with the following string:

(Brand Name) (Model Number) +driver

This should bring up some sites that list your motherboard drivers.

Another way would be to use Windows Update and choose Custom (instead of Express) Install and select all the Drivers and Optional elements (as well as any Priority elements).

I think I have already asked this - Is there only 1 Video Adapter listed in Device Manager? If not, Disable the one that you don't want to use.

As regards viruses, I recommend using AVG Free - it is a good antivirus program that updates Definitions daily - and best of all, it is free! You will still need to do a full System scan at least once a month to catch any viruses that slipped through before the Definitions were updated though (same as for any antivirus program).

Let me know how you go.

If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it

Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question exclamation mark ? mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
Want to make sure your drivers are in place and no errors have occurred? Simply click start right click on my computer select properties then select device manager scroll to Display Adapters and click on the small "+" you should see the model of your PCI Express graphic card there. If there is a problem with it, a yellow exclamation mark should appear besides it. If you don't see it everything is OK and your card is working properly.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hi help plz


You can find the driver at the manufacturer's support site, driverguide.com, or if it's the original video card that came with a brand name machine, at the machine manufacturer's support site.

Hi,

1. Go to START, then CONTROL PANEL.
2. Look for the SYSTEM icon, click that.
3. Click HARDWARE tab, then click DEVICE MANAGER

This will display all Installed Device Drivers & Uninstalled device drivers, usually uninstalled device drivers got yellow exlamation mark icon on it.

4. Look for the Sound Device or Video Device, then right click on that and click UPDATE DRIVER.

5. You need to browse for the right and proper Device Driver for this device, if not available, you need to download the Driver from the internet, and usually the sound device is provided with CD Installer, use that.

6. If all procedures were done correctly, then that should solve your problem.

If this procedure helps you solve your problemt, please spare a little time to rate my solution.

Druid..


Do you have the chipset driver CD? The driver CD that comes with the motherboard... You should be able to find the VGA driver on that. If you don't, then I am afraid I can do anything much..

Still doesnt worked..


I guess I had better ask some questions.

1) What video card or "On Board" video adapter are you using?

2) Why did you have to 'unintall" it, and what do you mean by "uninstall"?

3) What were the symptoms?

4) Did the file need unzipping? and did you do so? Note: Unzip the file to the same folder that you downloaded the file to..

5) When you reinstalled the driver, did it find the new one? or did it only find the Standard VGA Adapter?

Try this - RIGHT click on My Computer - select Properties - select Hardware - select Device Manager - select Display Adapters - Click on the video card listing (is there only one?) - select Driver - select Update Driver. When asked for a location Browse to where you have placed the Unxzipped files. These should then be used to Update your video driver rather than the standard VGA drivers.

Please get back to me with the answers.

Looking for DANTZEL SANTOWSKY..my expert..


Hi (not Dantz)

Do a Google search with the following string:

(Brand name) (Model number) +driver

This should bring up a list of sites from which you can download the driver (check that the operating system matches). Drivers are usually zip files, so (if necessary) unzip the file, then go to Add/Remove Hardware and run the program.

This should fix your problem.

Also, when downloading the driver - save it to your computer and place it in a folder called Downloads in My Computer. Create a backup disk of this file and label it (Brand Name) (Model Number) Driver - and keep it safe somewhere. This way you will have the driver available next time you need to reinstall it.
