Video Card Problems

I first got this problem when I has on Vista (had the same problem with Vista as others did), I changed OS to XP and ran Updates. But the problem returned after a few months, it couldn't be resolved by the Windows checker until recently saying "the Video Card is causing Conflections with the laptop". Since then my Desktop keeps resetting and the Active Desktop Recovery display appears, and this happen with in a short time of openning Windows Explorer too. Sometimes it freeze and when i try to open Explorer via Task Manager I get "/e,/idlish,:1268:2168,C:\" error message, saying it could not be found.

I have already tried updating the Video Card with no success, could you help? My spec for it is:
Intel Celeron processor 530 (1.73 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 1 MB L2 cache)
Mobile Intel Graphic Media Accelerator X3100
1GB DDR2

And I am using Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family

You need to run the recovery and allow Windows Vista to rule the roost. If you do not want to do that then you need to get a different hard drive,(preferrably a new one) And load XP on to it. Your laptop is designed to run Vista and the drive is coded to do so. After so many updates on XP it will pick up on your recovery partition because of SP3 update. No way around it unless you switch drives. I don't think you have permissions to delete the partition with Recovery on it. Get a different hard drive.

Ibm thinkpad r31 windows vista video drivers


The OS will ,USUALLY, apply a generic driver to the Graphics Adapter, and most essential components. Not always, but usually, when it boots the first thing you do is Windows Updates. You may have problems with some hardware when doing a OS upgrade.It can be tricky. If, say, you jump from XP to 7, you may be able to use vista drivers. Your in luck, on the ThinkPad R31 support website Vista and Win 7 drivers are available, SEE: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&DocID=HT072387 Go with Win 7, if you have that option.

Browsers like Mozilla/Opera/Crome/Netscape crashing
This issue is common for many using WinOS XP SP3, Vista, Win7 etc as Microsoft has made malicious programming codes in-built into their Explorer that makes other browsers work unstable....
There was a law suit which MS lost on this issue...now they have to allow other browsers to work in tandem....i guess this issue is not there in XP currently as the updates in there are not built to crash other browsers...so try XP...also try not to use Auto update enabled in the Control Panel/Security Ctr (disable it). I guess only a fresh clean install of OS with Auto update disabled can keep the updates from making changes to Mozilla/Opera/Google Crome/Netscape etc browsers...other than IE.

Note: Irrespective of which Win OS you are having keep the Auto Update Turned OFF, that way you will have less problems and the machine will be more stable, more often the Auto Update makes unnecessary changes to the OS which is not required at all…the Auto Update is in the Control Panel/Security Center. I have had many issues with Auto updates in the past, after disabling it since 1 year no issues in OS and my machine is more stable than earlier.
Keep these Settings in Security Center:
Firewall – ON, Auto Update – OFF, Virus Protection – ON and updated

You'll have to provide me with the exact video card and audio device in your computer.
On XP, Start, Run, dxdiag.
This will provide you with a detailed synopsis of what hardware your computer has.
Get the model number of the video card and of the audio device and I'll find drivers for you.

Video Adapter for ati xpress 200m


Toshiba don't do drivers for XP. The ATI website states the following

Advisory:
The display driver supplied by the laptop manufacturer is customized for the built-in flat panel display, and the graphics features and functions specific to the laptop. It is strongly recommended to use the supplied drivers.
If installing a different operating system other than the one included with the laptop, the laptop may not meet all the requirements, and supported drivers may not be available.
The laptop manufacturer is the exclusive provider of driver updates. If the required driver update is not available at the laptop manufacturers’ website, it is recommended to contact the manufacturer directly, to see if an updated driver will be made available in the future.
AMD cannot provide driver updates directly from AMD.com.

Your computer may simply be unable to run 2 operating systems. On the odd occasion the main OS usually the newest one in this case vista is running in the background and interfering with kernel operations even if you have selected "Previous version of windows" the 1 and only solution i know of is to not only re-format XP but Vista also.

the website above MIGHT be able to find driver needed but i dont think it is a driver problem.
This may be the only way- do this first

Genuine vista changed to xp?


just stick with vista, its faster, better and smarter
and yes webcam isnt compatible with xp some other drivers too like sound and video.

it is tuff now but give it few days and you get used
to it and the more you use it the more you like it
besided vista or windows 95 its only an operating
system and its just a tool to use your applications

to go to xp, buy xp license for about $100 and install it.

Seems like your VISTA upgrade didn't sucessfully upgrade itself from XP to VISTA. Seems like M$ update program detects your OS as XP and tries to install the SP3 for XP. VISTA only has SP1 released. Its currently stuck in a loop that it doesn't know what to do. Restart your laptop into safe mode by pressing F8 before the VISTA loading page comes up and go to Safe mode and backup your data and use the ACER RESTORE CD OR ACER RESTORE METHOD to help you reload your system back to factory defaults then upgrade back to vista without install any updates or connecting it to the internet.

This is my best solution to get you out of this weird and unusual situation.
