Need reco: IDE standard-to-mini connector adapter or cable?

Q: Need reco: IDE standard-to-mini connector adapter or cable?

I have a couple of systems that only have one type of IDE connector and need to flip each way. One of them is a small system but its one/only IDE port is fullsize... normal size. However I want to put a laptop-type DVD/RW in it that uses the miniature IDE/ATA port.

on two other Dell Opti desktops I have the opposite issue: They only have the small size IDE header, but I have a device that needs a fullsize connector.

Am I looking for an adapter that has male/male on each side, mini & standard? Or is there a cable out there, female on each end, that has fullsize on one and small/micro/mini on the other?

thx for help

I need to buy several USB 2.0 [at least] hubs for extra ports, for several machines. The one I'm looking at is a Belkin 4-port minihub, and it unfortunately has a very short tail so I'll have to buy an extension. The belkin, at
is not powered [no ac/adapter].
What I'm wondering is several things:
- I tried to find a hub with ext. power, but unfortunately the reviews of many of those are terrible. the good-review ones are expensive. ?? I don't need an industrial grade mega-port expander, just a few simple ports for routine things like cameras, ipods, etc.
- For a non-ext. powered USB hub, what is the cable length practical limit? I realize some devices will be more sensitive to the signal drop than others, but is there a rule of thumb? I'm leery of a 6' or longer extension, especially since I have to have a junction in between: the cord on the hub is fixed, so i have to plug it into an extension cord [more loss]
- Do any of you know a GOOD hub with its own p/s, with a cord about 3' long? that is what I was looking for but just didn't see a slam-dunk choice, searching Newegg, Amazon, and [ugghh] BestBuy.

Hey, I wanted to put some new games on my Laptop, and I got the Direct X 9.0c Compatible Graphics Adapter message. So I went online, and was instructed to go onto Device Manager and I found I had Standard VGA Graphics Adapter, so then I got some kind of update checker and it looked through my hardware and found that my Graphic Adapter needed updating... :blush:

I have already put some of the games I want on my laptop before now, and un-installed them when I ran out of space, and now I have more space I want to put them back on.

I tried a link for the Update, but it told me to use Windows Update, but it doesn't seem to work.

Does anyone know a free way of updating Standard VGA Graphics Adapter?

That would be helpful x :grinthumb

I know there are several threads but they are with different cards and they didn't solve my issue...

I bought a new MEDION AKOYA P5334E and the system arrived installed normally with win7 home edition.

I've installed on the computer the win7 enterprise edition (x64) and many drivers could not be find. I've installed nost of them, except the display adapter.
It's stuck on "standard vga graphic adapter".
I have the AMD Radeon HD7570 card but no matter what I try is not working!!!
tried to uninstall the current driver, tried to download the driver from the AMD website (when executing it - it's running but does nothing).
when executed the auto detect from AMD website, I got the message "we were unable to find your product or OS"

Will be greatful for any help!!!
Thanks a lot!!!

A:display adapter is stuck on standard vga adapter

Welcome to the Sevem Forums, Oraz.

If you still have the DVD of Windows 7 home edition and if it is also 64-bit then you might find the graphics adapter driver there which might get installed. Otherwise try installing Graphics Card AMD Radeon HD7570 in Windows XP SP3 mode.

Another option is to try installing the Graphics Card AMD Radeon HD7570 that you have downloaded in the safe mode. In case the this driver gets loaded in the safe mode then it shall install too.

I want to reuse a previously junked machine that has Celeron 600Mhz processor on a Mercury KOB 810FST motherboard. This motherboard (AT) has on-board VGA with a 16-pin connector for it (see attached pic for more info). Sometime ago (like..2 years back), I did a stupid thing by incorrectly connecting the VGA adapter cable (or whatever u call the one that's fixed to the back of the cabinet for connecting to the monitor) to the on-board VGA connector, which burnt the whole cable. Luckily, this motherboard survived without damages (at least so far :haha: ).

Now, I am trying to get this system working again without spending much. A friend got me a new VGA adaptor cable. Problem is... it has got only 15 holes instead of 16 for the 16 pins on the motherboard (see attached pic). How do I connect them?

I just picked up a Neoview 17" LCD monitor. It has LOTS of connections ... but none of them are VGA.

It looks like the main video connector is a D shaped and has three rows of 8 pins in it .. PLUS it has three more rows off to the side .. the top and bottom are two pins each and the middle is a flat blade .. I've never seen one of these before and am "sorta" lost.

It came with a male/male cable to match the connector mentioned above. Also, there's a male (connector above) to VGA female adaptor....... but to use the adapter to a VGA video card, I'd need a cable. Is there such a thing as a VGA cable ? ... Any monitor I've ever seen had the cable permanently attached to it.

Anxiously awaiting your respones ..... in the meantime, I'm gonna hook the monitor up to a VCR and see how the video looks (it has RCA video and audio inputs!).

A:LCD Monitor Cable/connector question

I'm assuming it has a DVI connection. Flat panels use digital signals. A lot of cheaper/older ones converted analog to digital signals because video cards converted digital to analog. New cards don't all do that. They have a DVI out for digital displays.

Is there such a thing as a vga cable: yes. Is it what you need: i'm not sure. From the sounds of it you have a convertor like a DVI-to-VGA that I've seen before included in cards that have DVI out but reversed. If so you should be able to get a standard 15 pin VGA extension that attaches to the adaptor and to the video card.

As seen in the image in the top right of the Wikipedia page:

I've been looking for a cable like that to use with Video input, with little success. I have come across a few VIVO cables, but not any with their purpose fulfilled: Video In and Video Out. Does anyone know where I can buy one of these?

A:6-connector VIVO splitter cable

Does your card support VIVO? Check with your card OEM. Surely, they should be able to supply the cord. As shown in the pin-out, they can vary. I have an eight pin that breaks out S-video and composite but it's for my TV card.

Update: After checking your card specs, I assume it's not for that. 'Cause it ain't gonna happen.

Hello all, my power supply for my laptop quit working and i am looking for a new one. The input is 120/240, 50/60Hz and the output is 19V & 3.15A. I have found many plugs like this or very close to this with the same voltage and slightly different amperage but I am worried if I buy this over the internet the actual little round connector thing that plugs in at my lap top may physically be too big or too small. How can i determine if I am buying the right one?

Do any of them claim to be a replacement for your model? Have you searched using either your laptop model number or the power supply part number?

I do have a question, if anyone knows any thing about the optiplex GX620 super small system. I have one of these , it does not have an optical drive, it only has a hard drive, which is new and not formatted. I have no way to install an OS on it. I have contacted Dell about 101 times trying to get a cable to connect an optical drive. I bought an Optical drive from them, but it did not come with a cable. I worked thru tech support, gave them the service tag number, they gave me a cable part number to order and I did buy it, but it is wrong, will not connect to the mother board. I have taken the system to several private computer repair shops and they looked at it and said they have never seen an IDE connection like that. So I am lost, Dell does not seem know and no one else seems to know what type of cable I need. It almost looks like some type of daughter card or adapter card would plug onto the IDE connection to allow a normal IDE ribbon cable to connect. It really looks like a connection you would see on the outside of a system, not on a mother board. Since it only has that one wierd connection I was thinking the adapter card would have a splitter so I could install a optical and a Floppy drive to it. But for now it is a door stop. I can get a picture of the connector on the mother board, but Dell tech does not work that way, so they will not help. Any Idea where I could go from here. If I could find a good manual or parts list I would have a better shot. Anyway, Thanks in a... Read more

Hello, hi, I hope someone can help me too.

I have an external hard drive that no longer works. I have taken out the hard drives from the enclosure (there are actually two 500gb SATA hard drives inside, but the computer reads them as one 1tb drive) and they can be read by an external dock that I already own (so I know that the hard drives still work at least).

My problem is that because of how the drives worked inside the enclosure they originally came with, the data is spread across both drives meaning I can't open or move the vast majority of it, because I can't connect both drives at once.

Does anyone here know of an adapter, or dock, or cable or converter that would allow me to connect both drives, but most importantly, have read the computer read them as one drive? I've found docks that have two slots, but I can't find any confirmation that these would read two drives as one. Is what I'm looking for even a thing?

My motherboard has 3 IDE channel/ports. One is for the floppy disk, the other for the CD drive and the 3rd one is for the hard drive. I plan on upgrading my hard disk, and I plan on cloning my old drive. For this I need to install the new drive as a slave drive. However on recent inspection I've noticed that the cable connecting my hard drive cable to the IDE port has no extra connector where the slave hard drive can be connected. However on the CD drive cable there is a spare connector.

Am i supposed to get a new cable with a spare connector for my hard drive cable, or can i place the slave hard drive on the spare connector for the CD cable. Really need advice, thanks.

P.S. can the ide cable suffer from ESD?

A:No spare connector on HDD cable - where am i to connect the slave drive?

If you're buying a retail package it will probably come with a cable that you can replace your single port cable with. If not, you can make the new drive the slave and plug it into the second connector on the cable with the CD. Then after you clone it change the jumper to master and replace the old drive with the new one on the existing cable.

OR, swap the two cables in there now, so that the CD has the single connector cable and the HD has the dual connector cable, plug the new drive in as a slave and clone away.

Not sure is the IDE cable can suffer from ESD but the other components you'll be working near can, so I would have on a wrist strap anyway and that would eliminate the possibility.

However, I am trying to keep as up to date with things as I am able. One thing I am trying to get a handle on is USB-C and USB 3.1. I have read there are many bad quality USB-C cables out there, courtesy of Google engineer Leung Benson and others, but have been trying to get hold of a USB 3.1 cable that I could use.
Having misunderstood exactly how the USB-C fits, I bought these cables by PThink:

I have a HP Split X2 Model 13-m110dx.  I replaced the LCD/Digitizer assembly, which required I remove all hardware from the display assembly.  My question focuses on the cable that connects the motherboard to the audio/HDMI/Dock board (item 7 on page 17 of  The cable of interest is the left one (with a 45 degree bend in it), and how it connects at either end.  A pic is below with the cable (yellow/gold). My question:  Is this a ZIF connector or do I need to lift up the front to release it?  A portion of the gray part of the connector broke off when I tried to lift it, assuming it was a clamp style ribbon cable connector.  The other end of the cable connects to the Motherboard with the same type connector.  I pulled that one out, but it's unclear if that is damaged if I did that wrong. Problem:  The HP Upgrade/Parts manual doesn't define how to disconnect these cables.  After reassembly, the keyboard/dock no longer connects, so what I have now is a standalone tablet w/o any USB ports or keyboard.  I ordered a new audio board in the hopes that resolves the issue. Anyone have any input on this?

Well, can a standard RCA cable carry the digital signal from S/PDIF from my computer to my receiver?

A:Can a standard RCA cable carry S/PDIF?

Yes and No.

SPDIF is a 75ohm signal. Not just any generic RCA cable will be able to correctly carry such a signal.

Shorter, higher quality RCA cables designed for video can sometimes "pull this off", but it's just because the shorter link length or higher quality can carry a 75ohm signal.

RCA only specifies the connector, by the way. So there are indeed "RCA" cables designed for SPDIF signal- they are just designed with higher quality conductor able to carry a 75ohm signal reliably. Most generic, cheap, audio RCA cables- no way. Might work for testing purposes, but I wouldn't recommend for permanent use. Get a good quality, 75ohm rated, shielded RCA to RCA cable designed for SPDIF.

To all Dell XPS 15 (9550) customers:  
Dell product management / production made a major error with XPS 15 9550.  Believe it or not, if you ordered one without a built-in hard or SSD drive (because an SSD card is included), the standard drive cable, connector and drive bumpers / rails are missing. Here are the Dell part numbers:
    XDYGX - Cable, Hard Drive, SATA 7MM
    3XYT5 - Grommet, Hard Drive, Rubber
This gets better.  If you then order a hard drive or SSD upgrade directly from Dell, the missing cable, connector and bumpers ARE ALSO MISSING!
Here is what the drive parts look like, from Dell's service manual:
I discovered this screw-up today when my new XPS 15 arrived, Next Day Air, for a major project.  I opened the case to install more RAM and an SSD drive -- and discovered the missing parts.  So I contacted Dell Support.  A very helpful CSR told me that the earliest Dell could deliver the parts was two weeks out.  I offered to pay for Next Day Air.  Nope, still two weeks.  I ended up ordering the parts via Amazon for $80, not including Rush shipping.
I Googled this issue and found lots of unhappy Dell XPS 15 customers in the same boat.  This failure was definitely bad for them, and for Dell's reputation.  Dell should clearly step-up and (a) solve this problem on all new XPS 15 systems, (b) offer quick parts delivery to desperate customers, and (c) i...

uninstalling in devmgmt (do not delete driver files) and then run driver install as administrator. if that doesn't work try the same thing in safe mode. If that doesn't work try clearing cmos and then installing drivers. though if you clear cmos you might have to manually set it up or do optimized configuration.

After reinstalling windows vista OS 64bit on my dell studio xps 1640, I reinstalled all the drivers that were on dell resource cd that came with my laptop. On my device manager there is still a yellow triangle with an exclimation mark next to Standard VGA Graphics adapter. I used to be able to use 1920x1080 screen resolution; however, the highest option now is currently 1400x1050 pixels and it reads default monitor on display settings instead of having HD Radeon 4670 option as it did before. My grahpics card is a radeon HD 4670. Could anyone possibly tell me what drivers I would need to download and install in order to get my screen resolution back to 1920x1080 and resolve the VGA adapter problem? I have gone to the dell driver website; however, the standard vga graphics adapter does not seem to be under the video drivers? thank you for your time and help guys >.<

There should be a Fn key that will activate the external display. Look carefully at the top row of keys for a symbol that looks like a monitor screen. Press the Fn and that key at the same time

My grandson who was in Iraq has an Alienware laptop which has Vista 32 bit installed.

He gave it to his dad and there seems to be some problem The Processor speed is like 5.5, the Mem. ram is 5.1, Graphics is 1.0 and Disc is 5.8, I am looking into this and I was wondering why I am unable to install the GeForce Program? My real question is, is the GeForce Graphics card in the puter or is the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter actually a very slow card and someone has taken the GeForce card out?

What laptop?

Some have dual gpu's.. the onboard intel on associaed with the cpu, and a dedicated on like a nvidia or amd/ati.

Theses tye of systems requires the driver to come from alienware/dell.

Hi, I just installed Windows 7 Professional 64x. Previously, I had 32-bit Vista Ultimate.

I have a Dell Precision M90, with 4 gigs of ram, a 2.00 GHz core duo processor, and a Nvidia Quadro FX 2500M video card.

In the device manager, my display adapter shows as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. I'm decent with computers, so I've upgraded video card drivers before. However, for some reason it is not allowing me to upgrade this driver. I have tried with both a 2500M driver as well as a 7900GTX driver (which worked for me in Vista).

I have also tried uninstalling the driver first, but it won't let me install another one before restarting and when I restart it just reinstalls the Standard VGA Graphics adapter. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I come up with a Nvidia 9200m graphics card. You can also try using this program to help with filling in your system specs. Speccy - System Information - Free Download

If your locking for the driver for it I would first try the manufacturers site since they sometimes modify the .inf file and it can cause you problems when trying to install the one directly from Nvidia

Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

If you have any problems installing the driver the normal way by clicking on the setup.exe file, then post back.
Their are other ways to get it installed.

Hello guys, I've posted here about something similar to which I solved thanks to your good help But now there's something I need to clarify. My PC, back in October had a incident that I don't want to go over which caused my repairer to replace the Graphics card. I lost Aero (simulating it now with Transbar and TrueTransparency). What boots up when I start the PC shows the card as: SIS True Color 16 Bit PCI or some stuff life that.. I downloaded CPU-Z and put my latest specifications in my system specs.. so click em! See if you could help me verify the graphics driver or anything, the previous one was a NVIDIA GeForce one. It also shows my monitor as Generic PnP

A:Standard VGA Adapter problem.

Hi IngestedFool, I thought you had solved this problem when you switched cables ? The SIS card you have is only 16bit meaning it will not support aero which needs directx 9 and above I personnally think its time for a new later model of GFX card that will support aero , Is there anywhere else you acn go to purchase from and not the same person who put the older GFX card in for you ?

Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 5650 (not 100% sure though)

How do I get the correct driver install?

I can't seem to install it. I have searched the net for solutions. Found some, but couldn't go on.

Hi there,

Just done a clean install of windows 7 on my Sony VPN-SZ5VWN and it has installed all drivers apart from the display.

It has a nVidia Go 7400 however when I try to install it it just states there is no nividia products.

If I try to uninstall the VGA driver, it asks me to restart and then, before I can do anything, it reinstalls the standard VGA adapter driver. I do get a solution saying to download the driver however this does not work.

The original drivers are for Vista and Sony provides no other supported OS for them.

Hi everyone,

I cruised around the forum trying to find a solution that worked for me but I couldn't. Here's the situation:

I formatted this computer (was running Vista) and installed 7 (x64). But now 7 isn't detecting my video card properly.

I've tried running EVEREST and so on, but haven't gained any hints that way. It's an onboard videocard and I can't make out any identifying characteristics that have been helpful so far. I've tried updating the motherboard but obviously that wasn't any help.

Now, I originally updated this beast from XP to Vista and recall having a similar problem. Somehow I figured out the card required a driver from Chrome (Welcome to S3 Graphics - Create world-class graphics and video cores).

I tried installing the 500 series driver for 7x64 but it doesn't seem to have taken. I fiddled with device manager but it is refusing to change from Standard VGA Adapter. I tried installing the 400 series but it gave me a hardware error which suggests I was on the money for it being 500.

Is there a way to force device manager to accept the 500 series driver? It didn't give me an error or anything and I'm pretty sure it's what I want -- positive, even.

I've included a pic of the inside of the computer (kind of useless?) and can attach an EVEREST diagnosis if anyone likes.

A:Standard VGA Graphics Adapter

What kind of games are you trying to play?

The laptop you have I think uses the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7150M Graphics Chipset. This onboard chipset will not enable you to play most modern day 3D games.

As to the Aero effects, these are the minimum system requirements:

1. a 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
2. 1 GB of system memory (512MB sometimes works)
3. a DirectX 9 compatible graphics processor with a Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM)driver, Pixel shader 2.0 in hardware, and a minimum of 128 MB of Video RAM
32 bits per pixel
4. 40 GB hard drive with 15 GB free space
5. DVD-ROM Drive
6. Audio output and Internet access (preferably broadband)

Here is a review on your IGP.

I have searched EVERYWHERE and read all threads and articles on this subject to no success. Most of the time the answers are 'install new drivers' or 'manually install drivers through driver > update " but I can't do either of these things.

After fresh install of windows 7 64bit sp 1 on a toshiba satellite s855d-s5253, I was going to install drivers as usual - I came across the display driver as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" - So I thought, okay so I just have to update and install driver for AMD Vision A10 ( It is a ATI Radeon HD 7660G). I know this is the right card, I used AMD Catalyst auto detect, I googled hardware ids, And also I remember this card from before I had to format the computer. I used an official windows 7 install disc, as well.
When it comes to trying to uninstall the driver, it always reinstalls itself as soon as I turn the system on - I have tried disabling automatic device installation to prevent this to no success.
And when I try installing the Catalyst stuff it ends up giving me a message like "graphics adapter not supported" or could not install because of the graphics adapter, etc. Basically I am trying to reinstall the drivers and its only picking up standard vga graphics adapter? not the Radeon HD 7660G. But it is definitely there. Have also tried safe mode....
I really am at a loss at what to do, this is really a pain as I cannot load any games on the computer!

I used to be able to use 1920x1080 screen resolution; however, the highest option now is currently 1400x1050 pixels and it reads default monitor on display settings instead of having HD Radeon 4670 option as it did before. My graphics card is a radeon HD 4670. Could anyone possibly tell me what drivers I would need to download and install in order to get my screen resolution back to 1920x1080 and resolve the VGA adapter problem? I have gone to the dell driver website and called them on the phone but I can not seem to resolve this. I don't know if I need to turn something off or disable a driver to make this work, I'm at a loss and quickly getting tired of Dell. I followed the links from Triple6 back in Aug 2010 and it hasn't helped. Thank you for your help.

I have not been able to successfully install my graphics card after upgrading to windows 7 ultimate.

I would like to know if there is anyway to detect an external monitor using the standard VGA Graphics Adapter as my graphics card.

Welcome to seven forums. IMO You should first read through thie thread and get your graphics card driver installed, then you shouldn't have any problems. Fabe Windows not recognizing NVidia GeForce 8400M GT

Yeah so, every now and again i decide to update windows 7 64, just to see if it WONT make me have to do a reinstall, ya know for it to do some actual good. yeah not so much... Problems problems, problems, ever since i updated to win7...

this latest batch of problems has me kinda ticked and sorta fed up entirely, of course geeksquad is a joke of a company, who wont honor their obligation when i bought my laptop, but thats a rant for another day.

so this one day, i restart my computer, just like any other time, and next thing i know, upon restart, i have 8 bit. with a 800x600, i check to see if maybe its just a video driver issue, and my gforce is gone, it's replaced with " generic non-Pnp monitor standard VGA graphics adapter ".

To top it off, i forget what peice of hardware i had originally.

So now whenever i restart my computer, or shut it off, then turn it back on again, my screen looks as if an 8th grader created a new theme for my laptop...

if i want to to be "normal" i have to just shut the lid, and pray it comes back more appealing...

What can i do??

Hey everyone, it's been a long time since I've had to ask anything on these forums, but I'm glad they're still here when I need them! I've done some looking into the problem, and it seems like there aren't many resources on my problem.

I'm trying to connect my television to my laptop, via an SVideo connection. The problem is, my graphics card does not, and CAN NOT, have its factory/updated drivers installed. The graphics card is currently being run under "Standard VGA graphics adapter" drivers.

(The reason I can't put drivers on the card is because it's fried. I'm suffering from a burnt-out, defective NVidia GeForce 8600M GS, like many other people, and I'm mired down in court documents that I'll be using against HP in small claims court.)

Are there another set of drivers I could try that would allow my laptop to use an external display?
Is there a way to set up an external monitor under standard VGA graphics adapter drivers?

OK as Ive been looking around the site Ive noticed that there are many issues like this one, and Im sure there are plenty of people out there that have this problem...

My "Windows Experience Index" is at a 1.0 only because my Graphics, and Gaming Graphics rating are at 1.0. Everything else is at 5.9 which I can live with.

When I look at my adavanced settings for my monitor it Shows my Nvidia GPU but only running with 14 MB total avail mem. And I know that NOT right. Unfortunatly when I went to Nvidia's site and ran the auto detect it said that I didnt even have their product and that I had the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

I can't seem to find the right drivers for this to fix it all, and I would love to be able to "Experience" Windows 7 at its fullest. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully the attached photos will give you an idea as to what Im working with.

Also When i toubleshoot Aero Ive received this message:
"The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver."

And when I try to change my screensaver to a 3D one it states that I either need a newer graphics card or one that is compatible with Direct3D. So yeah. Thats about where Im at.

When I first downloaded Windows 7, the resolution was something like 1024 x 786 (or whatever the number order is). I was told to update my video card, but since I can't afford to do that, I dealt with it. It was annoying, but I got used to it.
A few months later, I turned on my computer and it had magically fixed itself. The resolution was back to normal, my DVDs would play, yaddah yaddah. It stayed like that for a few more months.
Then, yesterday, I turned my computer on and it was back to having a tiny resolution. It tells me I need to update my video card driver, but when I did, it said that it was fine. Now I'm lost because I've done everything I know how to do whether it be updates or installs.
I'd really like to avoid forking over the cash (that I don't have) for a new video card so anyone knows how fix this problem on a Sony Vaio PCG-6L1L (VGN-SZ230P) (an ancient computer, I know), can you please help (with step by step instructions if possible)?

A:Standard VGA Graphics Adapter - Sony Vaio

I would start with re-installing the video drivers, both of them. From looking at the specs for that model laptop (click on Marketing Specifications to view the pdf),

Sony eSupport - VGN-SZ230P - Manuals / Specs / Warranty

it has both the Intel 950 (chipset Intel 945GM) and the Nvidia Go 7400, If that is in fact what it has I would start with the Intel driver first,

? Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows* 7(exe)

and then install the Nvidia driver second (it's a beta, looks like Nvidia dropped support for it),


They may not install as Sony is somewhat anal about allowing manufacturer's reference drivers to be used without them (Sony) first doing whatever it is they do to the INF's (they can't mod the drivers themselves, just the INF's).

If neither of those work you can try the Sony provided Vista drivers from ehre,

I just recently tried uprgraded from Windows 95 to Windows 98. Upon finding that such a task was unsuccesful and my computer had no room for it, I was forced to format my hard drive; much to my dismay.

Once Windows 98 was loaded I went to Properties and then Settings to fix my Display. I was rather annoyed to find that the computer was telling me I only have 2 Bits or 16 Bits of color. I know damn well it is registered for 32 Bits and is running on FAT32. I cannot understand why it is doing this for me. I understand I will probably need another driver, but I do not know which one.

My Monitor is a Hewlett Packard Ergo 1024 and my CPU is a Compaq Deskpro ... Not sure of the numbers. Please, if someone can help me let me know. I am great with computers but am completely stumped on this one. I know that there was a previous discussion of this on another post set but I did all they talked about and nothing helped.

Okay, I posted a while back about serious problems [ not that I am the first person ] I am having with my Standard PCI Graphics Adapter. As always, I only have 2 and 16 colors when I am running on a FAT32 and am registering for 32Bit. This thing is making me want to get rid of my computer because I fear it is too old to be able to help now. Someone gave me a site to download a new driver, but while it did give me more colors, the icons, fonts, screen in general, were seriously messed up. I could not reverse the process no matter how hard I tried, so I once again was forced to format my computer. Someone please help me, I'm going nuts over here.

Hello, I have a Aspire AX3950 that came with Windows 7 Home. I had to re-image the machine to Windows 7 Professional so I could install Visual Studio 2013. I got the software from my MSDN Subscription.After successfully reimaging the machine, the system only recognizes one of my monitors. It was working properly with the same two monitors before the windows update. I checked the Display Adapter and it shows "Standard VGA Graphics Adaper". It was my mistake for not checking the adapter before updating the system. From what I have found on the internet, this AX3950 has a graphic card coupled with the mother board. My question is, how can I get the original Display adapter working again?

I've tried about almost every "solution" I could find on the internet and it's just been one problem after another.

I've just recently received this laptop and I went and tried to play The Sims 3 on here, but when I tried and go play it an error popped up stating "Can't run The Sims 3 with the video card in this system" blah blah. So when I finally found the issue and went to try and update the graphic card, it would say the installation was successful and that I just needed to restart my computer. But I restart my laptop and it still shows up as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" under Device Manager. That happened when I went to install the "Intel(R) HD Graphics Family". I've tried every single method I could find to updating this stupid graphics driver, but I've just been running into one problem after another. I thought I finally found a solution when I went to go and try and install the beta version of "Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400", but at the end a window pops up talking about "The driver selected for this device does not support this version of Windows." Every single thing I've tried so far as resulted in nothing but failure. I don't know if it's my laptop that's the problem or what. All I know is I'm about ready to give up at this point.

My graphic card, an integrated GeForce 8600M GT, only shows up as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". The computer cant even run the screen saver.

It seems to me that Windows 7 fails to find my graphic card. When i try to install the drivers from Nvidia the install stops ans says that my hardware do not support the driver.

I'm on Windows 7 Professional 64 bits
My motherboard has an onboard graphics card that works just fine. I installed an old PCI graphics card in order to use more monitors (TNT2 Riva by NVidia). The card is so old that it doesn't have a driver for Windows 7 64bits (it seems that it works in 32 bits)
As a result Windows 7 uses a "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" as the driver, the monitor and card works but it wont let me go above 1024x780, is there any way to force a higher resolution in this driver? Both my monitor and card can support it

Hello, I have a problem, as you may already know: After switching my hard drive out for a new one (Because of what I think to have been a virus), my computer keeps telling me that I have a "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter," when I know I have an "ATI Radeon HD 6480G" graphics card.

For the drivers you need you have to go to Toshiba,

You will need the full model number for your laptop. While there also look for chipset drivers, and if available get them and install before the video driver.
