Assuming you're using windows 2000 or windows XP (not Vista), you can find the drivers for your laptop here. More specifically, the audio driver can be found here and the display driver can be found here.

Try going onto the manufacture website and go to support and download drivers. Look up your model number or do a search, and they should have it on the website, or if you have the restore disc, you can pop it in while you on (not while booting up) and browse the disc or if it autoplay, then click install drivers. Well I have toshiba and Im able to do both but you just need to do one.

Hope this can help you, GOOD LUCK

My PC was newly formatted but unfortunetly I dont have driver to install like sound driver, video driver and other. I'm hoping that you can provide those driver mentioned above so that my PC will function...

Hi there.

Would need the manufacturer to provide you with proper drivers, so I can really only give you very basic information:
Go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager. Your Video Card will be displayed under Display Adapter. Your Sound Card will be displayed under Sound, Video, and Game Controllers. Go to the manufacturer's website for each of these Drivers. You will find the updates in their Drivers and Downloads section.

If you need more specific information, reply with the make and model of these Drivers and I can provide you with proper instructions. :)

I have Intel P4 with XP as operating system, it has started given a problem, CPU power is on but there is no display in monitor and the monitor light is also green but blinking very fast,plz tell me where...

It sounds to me to be a video card issue. Make sure that the video card is properly inserted into the mother board and that the cable is properly connected. If that fixes you problem it is connectivity.

If that doesn't fix it, (If you have another monitor available) try to hook another monitor up (that you know works) and see if the problem repeats itself. If it does you are probably going to need a new video card. If it doesn't, then either your monitor or it's cable is bad.

I hope that this helps you, if it doesn't edit or re-post your problem with more information to help trace down the issue.

Good Luck

Hi there, Assuming you don't have a PCI-Express graphics card installed (which would need to be identified if so), then you can get Intel GPU drivers by clicking here.

Your drivers may be correctly installed already. If the game you are trying to play requires a version of DirectX or other graphics rendering system which your integrated Intel display adaptor does not support, then it will often tell you that you have no supported display device/adaptor, which could be misleading. However, a new driver may add new feature support which may get you going.
Try the Intel driver above, if this does not work you may need to install a supported PCI-E graphics card for the game(s) you're trying to run but please reply with any further information.

Video card not installing

Did you make sure you uninstalled the original 9600gt driver, other than that you could try safe mode with networking and download/install the driver.
