Reboot the PC and press F8 go into the Safe Mode.
Once your in the Safe Mode reboot out and login normally.
Make sure you don't set the Video Card higher than what the Monitor can handle otherwise you'll see that message.

Device cannot start code 10 message


If your system is displaying code 10 or "the device cannot start" error messages, resolve the problem with a little troubleshooting.
These messages arise when your computer does not recognize universal serial bus (USB) devices.
Faulty USB devices or malfunctioning drivers are common causes of a unrecognized USB device. It is important to detect and repair the underlying issue to prevent serious harm to your personal computer.

Plug the USB device into another computer.
If the alternate computer displays the code 10 error, there is a problem with the USB device.
Return the device or purchase another one.
Plug the new device into your system. Make sure the code 10 error does not appear.
Click "Start" and right-click "Computer."
Select "Manage" and click "Continue" if the "User Account Control Prompt" appears. Open "Device Manager."
Select the faulty USB device.
Notice a yellow exclamation warning next to it.


Right-click the faulty USB device driver and select "Update Driver Software."
Allow the driver to update.

Right-click the faulty USB device driver and click "Uninstall."
Exit the Device Manager.
Restart the computer.
Allow Windows to reinstall the driver automatically.
Ensure that the USB device is working correctly.
If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers should be on it.

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution
Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START


According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

What is the drivers


Drivers are software programs written by a device manufacturer for components (such as a sound or video card) which, when executed, enable the device to communicate with your operating system. Most components come with a driver CD that enable you to install the drivers on your hand drive per the manufacturer's instructions.

When i try and install nhl 2006 i get a message 3d acellrator card did not intialize properly and that i should update my drivers


Graphics card may not be on game compatablity list.
Check games specs at Manufactures web site.
Get updates driver from Graphics card maker.
ATI.com + nVidia.com are most common unless Graphics on Motherboard - which in most cases are not updatable.
You may have add a graphics card if graphics on motherboard -check your system specs-
Most major computer manufacturers use ALL IN ONE motherboards to build thier systems - something to be aware of for gaming.

When I turn on my PC, it starts normally. After


Screen Goes Black After Splash Screen

This sounds like a driver may have been updated, changed or has become corrupt, either after a bad update or virus/malware attack. Reboot the computer in safe mode with networking…when the computer reboots, open the control panel > device manager (in XP the device manager is in the system folder) > scroll to the display adapter. Right click on the adapter and roll-back the driver. Click yes and apply if necessary. Reboot the computer, it should reboot and display with no issue. It may ask (if you are automatically connected to the internet) if it can search windows update for a fresh driver….since you know what to do in case of a failed update, click yes and get a fresh driver. I would then do a complete virus and anti-malware scan to make sure the system is clean.

I have a dell gx270 system with 96mb of video card but my driver is showing it 32 i updated my driver but nothing happens.


It depends on how much it is being taxed by the system.

The more demand a program requires , the more it gives.

This card is a very cheap way of providing AGP video.

It actually takes away from you systems RAM to give to the video subsystem.

See this link for details.

  2. click 'manage'
  3. on right side click 'device manager'
  4. where ever you see a 'yellow checkmark' right click and choose 'update driver'
If that doesn't work, let me know. Good Luck, and please rate my answer.

Dell optiplex 320. when we switch on we can hear the windows sound and its on but i can not see anything on the monitor. is it the vga i have to change??


first try booting in safe mode (F8 for the menu when windows first starts to load) choose safe mode and see if it comes up. If it does, then chances are you have a driver problem, so change to the standard VGA driver (START : Control Panel | System | Hardware Tab - Device Manager) Uninstall the display adapter, and it will either reinstall or you can select a standard VGA adapter. Then reboot as normal and see if it is displaying. You can then try downloading an updated driver (before you delete the Video card from the device managaer, jot down which one it is)

If bootingin safe mode doesn;t work, but the intial screens come up when you power on, then a videw card problem is possible, but most times vidoe cards seem to be all or nothing, so I am betting on a driver problem.
