Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Got it to check for something, but it's been going for TWO HOURS!!! No "X", no button, nada.... my mom is not computer savvy and thinks that shutting down a computer will cause all of her stuff to go (becuase her "calculator does that"...oh boy) anyway to do this without giving my mom a heart attack?
Tips for a great answer:
Double-click the "System" icon. Choose the "Device Manager" tab. Press the "+" next to "Display Adapters" to view installed display adapters. Highlight the adapter listed and click "Remove" then "OK." Close all open windows and restart the computer.
Press the "F1" key at the blue HP screen. Enter set-up and press "F5" and "Enter" to reset all data. Press "F10" to save and exit.
Right-click the "My Computer" icon on the desktop. Select "Properties" from the menu. Click the "Hardware" tab, then the "Device Manager" button. Expand "Display Adapters" and right-click the graphics card. Select "Update Driver" from the menu.
Choose "No," and hit "Next," then select "Install From a List." Select the option to show all hardware. Choose "Standard Display Types." Select "Standard Display Adapter (VGA)" and hit "Next." Don't restart the computer.
Click the Windows "Start" button. Go to "Settings" and open "Control Panel." Click "Add/Remove Programs." Remove any i810 and i815 chipset programs. Restart the computer. After it starts up, go into the "Display Adapters" section in "Device Manager."
Open the "Standard Display Adapter (VGA)." In the properties window, un-check the box "Exists in All Hardware Profiles." Click "OK" and shut down the computer. Open the computer case. Install the new video card according to the manufacturer's directions
hope this helps
