Question about Intel SYNTAX S651M SIS651 mATX (SYNTAX S651M SIS651) Motherboard
I couldn't get a solution the first time so I'm asking again... I recently formatted my pc, a syntax S651M motherboard. I can't install my monitor's driver (for Samsung SyncMaster 753s). At "(Default Monitor) and Properties", which I reached by clicking Advanced at the Settings tab at display properties, there's no information at the Adapter tab. Clicking properties opens a new Dialogue box called VgaSave Properties this does show some information, but Manufacturer and Location are both unknown. When trying to install the monitor's driver from the CD, a dialogue box comes up, at the top it says "Pick the display adapter on which you want to install the monitor". I'm supposed to choose from a drop-down list, but it's blank. Any way, I select my monitor model in the box under that and click ok. I then get an error message that says: "Error occur,while installing monitor adaptor. (ErrorCode 259)". Using XP. Original monitor driver CD, but i'm convinced the problem's with not with the cd, i even downloaded the driver from the samsung website and had the same result. I just did a google search for "vgasafe" and got this http://www.subwolf.org/v2/articles.php?article=1 but i couldn't get the driver from the link supplied there. not even sure if it's for my hardware. maybe you could see what's there and explain it to me. Thanks for your time.
First browse the driver CD and look for a file with the extension .inf. You should find it in a sub directory probably "winxp" or similar. Make sure you find the one for winXP, not win2000 or winnt. After you locate the file, go to control panel, then display. Click on the settings tab, then advanced. Now click the monitor tab. In the default monitor box click properties, then the driver tab. Now click update driver,(the second button down) and you will get a wizard that will take you through the install process. Pay attention here, print these instruction if you need to. First window will want to go online, choose third choice, "no, not at this time" and click next. Next window, choose "install from a list or specific location" and click next. Now click "Search for a driver in these locations" check "include this location in the search". At the end of the text box, click browse and go to the location where you found INF file. Click next and the driver will install. You may have to restart your computer.

Hi, this what i think is the problem the operating program your using now is wrong for the monitor coz to my expirience some monitors can't handle winxp,winvista or the other thing is that you have not found the right software for the monitor . Do research good luck
