Reinstalling Driver WinXP

Q: Reinstalling Driver WinXP

I've been having a slight problem with my SATA controller drivers. The nvidia drivers that I was using would always cause a bsod pointing to nvgts.sys in system32/drivers. While trying to figure out which driver to install as a replacement, i found the nvgts.sys file and deleted it from system32/drivers folder, just to see what would happen... Now Windows XP can't boot up because the driver is missing lol; I can't even get into safe mode. So, is there any way to reinstall the driver from the Windows CD-ROM or something? The black screen says to insert the said CD and start the recovery console but I wouldn't know what to run. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A: Reinstalling Driver WinXP

Assuming you used a floppy to install the Nvidia Raid drivers, start a Repair Install and when it asks for you to press F6 do so and re-install them.

edit: btw, if you Google that driver there are LOTS of people experiencing issues with it.

Hey guys, I need to reinstall windows xp - acer T160 - but the thing never came with a restore cd, the backup copy is located on my (partitioned) hard drive (C and D). Can anyone tell me how to do this, as I really don't want to pay $60 for a half hour of tech support from Acer. Thank you in advance!

In what form exactly is the backup copy?
Is it on a hidden partition? This is most likely, and if you don't have a CD you usually start the recovery mode by pressing some key during boot up. That 'some key' will be displayed during the boot process.

Hi,
For various reasons (mainly that my laptop no-longer boots outside of safety mode) I want to start fresh and reinstall WinXP.
I never had the disk (I got the laptop from my dads work so it wasn't new). However I've heard that it's possible, with a file stored in the I386 folder to restore it without the disk. But when I try and open the installer, it comes up with a message "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation". So, any help would be appreciated. If it helps, I'm on SP3... There is another Winnt32, which calls itself "Stub loader for Winnt32 setup program". When I load that up it says something about not being able to install because of the file being older than the current installation of Windows on the PC at the moment. I have no idea which is the file I should be using, or how to get into any of them!
Thanks in advance,
George

Except for functions I hosed by changing settings, my year old Dell PC works and even sends e-mail and surfs. However, I must rebuild. I got the UBCD4WIN set, but have no way to build a CD. I have another computer but it is Win XP Home and doesn't have a CD burner.

SO, my intention is to use the Reinstallation disk Dell supplied with my computer, and I'm wondering what to do to prepare for that. Our computers are connected to the internet via satellite. The XP Pro Home computer is primary, connected with a wired router. My machine I'm going to repair is then using a WIRELESS router.

My question is whether or not I need to remove the wireless router before using the Reinstallation disk.

thanks,

I am working on reinstalling windows XP Home on an HP Laptop
I have the WIndows XP Home with SP3 image burned to CD.
Laptop specs:
HP Pavilion ze4400 (ze4430US), AMD 1.8 GHz mobile Athlon, 512MB (going to upgrade to 1GB), 40GB HD.

First off, to wipe the HD, I had to remove it, put it in an enclosure, hook it to my main laptop and reformat that drive using Drive Manager.

Putting it back into the original Laptop (above), (attempted) boot to CD, changed Boot order to use CDRom first. For some reason the laptop will not recognize the CD I burned as a valid install CD and goes to the HD. If I put my personal (original) Win XP Pro CD in, it recognizes it properly. In addition, Bart PE will install from disk, without an issue.

I have copied the files from the CD onto the harddrive into a folder, then while in Bart PE, attempted the install, the install hangs at the end of Copying the Installation files to the main install folder.

When I reboot from that attempted installation, my latest issue is an error with a missing HAL.DLL file.

What I think would be better would be some way to remove everything but the copied win cd files and then find a way to boot using a boot disk or maybe even a thumb drive, with command files and then use that to kick off the installation on the hard drive.

NOTE: It would seem to me to be a problem with the Win XP Home CD that I burnt from an ISO image (downloaded from MSDN Downloads), but if I put that same cd in my other PC's it is recogni... Read more

I have just had my comp fixed by the comp store after a number of problems, and this included a format and reinstall on WindowsXP.

But, they had infact installed WinXP Pro sp2 instead of home - no complaints from me, but I only have a WinXP home sp1 disc.

I have had a number of problems with the current WinXP instilation and figure instead of fixing all the problems to just reinstall.

I have WinXP Pro installed on a 20GB fat32 primary patition on a 200GB HDD. I also have a second Primary partition which I intend to install a linux distro on, and a VERY large extended partition which I have setup a linux swap partition, a windows pagefile partition, and the left is unallocated for the moment until I format it.

To go about reinstalling windows - I would need to format the C:/ drive. If I use a win98 floppy and use fdisk, and just select to format the drive C:/ is that going to affect the rest of the partitions (primary and logical)?

I also want to reinstall WinXP back onto a FAT32 system - How do I set that up? - Can I do this through fdisk or is this one during the WinXP install?

*I have installed Win98 a number of times, but never WinXP*

Over the years, it seems like I've had to reinstall WinXP at some point or another on almost every computer I've owned or worked on. I just had to do it on my friend's computer, and even though it warns you that all files and folders will be deleted, it didn't happen, as usual. Everything is installed under a different file name (WINNT instead of WINDOWS for example) or extension (say, with a .001 or whatever) so all the previous stuff is still there and accessible. And I realized that I've come to count on that, which made me wonder - just out of curiosity, has anyone ever lost the contents of "My Documents" or any other files when reinstalling WinXP?
 

A:Has anyone ever lost anything when reinstalling WinXP?

In order for data to be completely lost (forever) on a hard disk, it must be reformatted. If you are using a Windows XP OEM disk to reformat your drives ALL the data (on a partition) will erased. It sounds like whatever you are doing to "reinstall" Windows is merely backing up and saving existing files and not completely purging them from the hard drive.

I just tryed my "Restore CD's" that came with my eMachines. Didnt work, said that there was some kind of error in the T2682.GHO file on the restore disk... Usually i would just pop in the WIN XP CD so i could just reinstall from the actual WinXP cd (makes sense...) But... me being dumb and careless, lost my WinXP cd, so im pretty much completely screwed unless i do a Format C: from the command Prompt. Then restart and boot on the restores.... (im not going to this but its definatly a thought.) So im bascially going to go crazy and look for my WinXP cd all day today. So, as u said. I will just stick to the repair install method cuz this just cant b fixed....
i couldnt find the cd so i will go with formating...

Question: Would it be a good idea to format c: then try reinstalling WinXP with the restore cds? Even though the eMachine restore cd is corrupted with a t2682.gho error. Would i format it then find out that restore cds are still corrupted and then find out that im left without a computer at all?

My mom attempted to reinstall Windows XP on her computer and ran into some trouble. I hope someone can help.

Most of the installation process went fine, but every once in a while it would pause and say a file was missing, choose whether or not to continue. She continued, thinking it was something that could be fixed after the fact, but I'm guessing (!) that was a mistake. After the "installing files" screen, it rebooted and crashed with a blue screen saying something like:

"c000021a - logon process system terminated wtih status 0xc0000034"

Every time you restart the computer, it gives you the opening/welcome Windows XP screen, then crashes with the same BSOD.

I've tried to give it a "do-over" with an XP disk of my own that I know works, but it won't do anything with it. When I put the disk in and start up the computer, I get the pale blue setup screen for XP and it says "set up is restarting", and then the same BSOD. I've tried changing the boot priority so that the CD comes first, but it didn't help. It does recognize the CD drive, in that it lights up green upon starting and seems to recognize that there's an XP disk in it, but it won't or can't get past whatever it seems to be stuck on.

I'm not very computer-savvy myself and I'm not sure what info you folks need to know what I'm working with, but I'll give it my best:

Is there anyway to fix these with reinstalling every one?

Sinply making the logon user name the same isn't going to work. Windows doesn't see users in simple terms like names. You will have to reinstall those programs.

I have just reinstalled my system (XP Pro SP2). Authenticated updated and all. I haven't changed any hardware and in fact I reinstalled less software than before.
Since reinstallation, I've noticed considerable deterioration on scroll speed (eg in Firefox and in Word & Excel. For firefox I've checked "smooth scrolling" it's off. Especially Word used to be up to 1page/sec while scrolling with arrow keys, now is down to 5-6 sec/page. Also: normally Word shows the page numbers (lower left corner) changing as you scroll - not anymore in my case. Page numbers remain change only after scrolling stops.
Any ideas?
I can't say whether overall performance is reduced with certainty.
My 2.66GHz machine is clean according to avast antivirus, spybot, adaware & adwatch, Netscape's own spyware scanner. Reg mechanic finds no problems. HD (40GB) is error free and cleaned-up and defragmented. Smooth scrolling options are off.

It appears that you already have the best installation considering what you will need to do after reinstalling XP MC.

If you would like to tell us why you want to reinstall as you haven't mentioned a particular issue as such. If you just want to create another partition, you don't need to reinstall for that.

Whether there will be a performance issue after creating a new partition, that would depend on how much space you leave/have on the primary/boot partition, and what you will use the secondary partition for. You never know, the advice may be just to get an additional hard drive or keep it as it is.

So, basically, what you may realise already is that we need to know why you want to make these changes to be able to give you the best advice.

Okay, so here's what's happening.

I'm fixing a computer that got a very nasty virus from Limewire. I have backed everything up, but I don't think there's actually anything wrong with the filesystem.

I just want to reinstall Windows over top of the existing installation so it doesn't have to redo the entire filesystem and will replace the system files so none of the programs/files will be effected.

When I try to boot up into the XP SP2 install CD, It will not recognize any hard drives. Obviously, the computer has hard drives in it.

if some one could help me get rid of the virus (I believe it's one of those nasty pdf bugs) or figure out how to do an install of windows over top of the existing one without formatting the drive, I would appreciate it. These are my only two options, the client will not accept any other option.

This is URGENT. I have given ALL the information I possibly can. Thanks.

I have an AMD Athlon 2200 with WinXP Home installed on it. Other details:

2 Hard Drives: Maxtor 20 GB (older, perhaps 3 yrs old), WinXP installed on this drive.
and Western Digital 120 GB Hard Drive, brand new (partitioned into 4 parts)

2 - 256 MB DDRAM PC 2100

My problem began recently when I ran Perfect Disk defragmenting program and selected the "boot defrag" option, which defrags the drive upon boot up, before Windows loads. I had selected the "C" drive which is the 20 gb Maxtor upon which Win XP Home is installed. This is the only drive in FAT32 format, the remainder are in NTFS.

Upon rebooting I received an error message that some part of WinXP was corrupted and it could not load. It was located in: C:\Windows\System32\Config\System

In any case, I attempted to reinstall WinXP Home and received numerous error messages reporting that various portions of the WinXP cd could not be copied to disk.

A:I hope this is a simple question. Involves reinstalling winXP

When you do a fresh installation of XP (and thats what you should do if its horribly infected with malware and you cant get rid of it) then yes you will lose all information on the drive.

I have to tell you though its not a good idea to be "attached" to information that is stored on a harddrive anyways - as a drive can fail at any time. Have backups - or you will regret it should your drive fail one day.

That said i suggest to save all your information on CDs, or DVDs and then reinstall windows (of course only if the HJT log analysis doesnt seem to produce satisfying results).
I know its a pain in the rear end to reinstall a lot of applications - but wiping your harddrive and starting over fresh sometimes is the only way to escape a bad infection.

Hello,

I'm trying to reinstall Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 4600 using the WinXP Home System Recovery disk. I'm not sure if that disk was the one that came with that computer or not, but the reformatting procedure was going fine until the screen changed to a black screen with "Gateway" displayed on it in large white lettering with a white scrolling progress bar that animated for a few seconds, then froze. I figured that the reformatting process would take a long time, so I walked away, but several hours later, I found that the screen hadn't changed at all and the computer didn't seem to be doing anything aside from just sitting there, displaying that same image.

Am I doing something wrong, or is there something wrong with the computer itself (e.g., I'm not using the correct System Recovery disc)?

First you have to isolate the problem--make sure the speakers are working. The easiest thing is try the speakers somehwere else. Also, make sure that the volume is not muted, that the sound is turned up, speaklers are plugged in and on, etc., etc. Do that first to rule out the obvious before driving yourself nuts thinking its a driver problem.

Hey guys,I am reinstalling Windows XP onto a computer I just bought that had a hacked version of Vista on there. Anyway, I put in the XP install disc, and, it does not recognize a hard drive, so, I can't delete the previous partition. Talking to a friend of mine, he said that I needed to install the SATA driver for the machine, a HP A1440N desktop. I can't find it on HP's website. Any clue where I can find it? Also, how do I install this driver on the machine once I do have it?Thanks.JeremyEDIT: Merged topics

A:Reinstalling XP - need SATA driver

SATA is on board and is supported by the BIOS. No drivers are required for installing XP. Check the connections on the drive and check the BIOS settings to be sure the port you are plugged into isn't disabled.

So someone (my son) decided to uninstall the graphics driver on my laptop - an HP G72 running Windows 7.
I thought I would just be able to get the driver from Windows Update. The driver showed up in Windows Update "Intel Corporation - Display - Intel® HD Graphics". When I try to install through Windows Update, though, the update fails, giving the error code 800705b4.
Googling the error code, I found a Microsoft help site that said to try the Windows Update troubleshooter. The troubleshooter told me to try running Windows Update again. When I did, I got the same result as before.
I tried going to HP's website and downloading the driver and installing it from there. The installer ran for a while, and then an error popped up reading "An error occurred while registering one or more components. Setup will exit." with just an OK button. I clicked OK, and the installer popped up, ready to try again, so I went through the process once more, and got the same result.
I tried, based on advice received elsewhere, to download the installer from HP's site, and then use 7-zip to extract the .exe file, then go into Device Manager and update the driver, and then direct the wizard to that folder. After it tried to install for about 10 minutes, I got the following message: Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. This operation returned because the timeout period expired.

Look in the recovery program if you have one. It's possible there will be an option to reinstall drivers and applications.

Otherwise find it online on a computer you can conect to the internet and put in on a flash drive. Then install it on the first computer.

Hey everybody

I have just bought a game, FIFA 06, and it wouldn't play on my computer to begin with. I have been having some trouble with viewing certain embedded videos as well, so I decided to try and reinstall the video drivers. I did this, and the game worked fine.

The problem is, it worked fine when I went in and played non-stop. When I got out of the game, and went back in, the game messes up again. Right when I get to the loading screen to go into the match, it kicks me out and gives me an error.

I'm not sure why, but everytime I reinstall the video drivers, the game gets back to working for the one time I am in. Any ideas on what is going on?

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if I will need to backup the drivers on the computer? If so, what should I use to do it?

Thanks in advance.

No need to backup the drivers. Just go to the Dell support site, enter your service tag number, and download and install all appropriate drivers starting with the chipset driver.

A:Why does W10 keep reinstalling my GPU driver after I uninstall it and have it set to not autoinstall

Drivers for what GPU? Trying to find the other thread where someone is have this issue with Quadro drivers I believe. Pretty confusing to me in that I've had no issue with installing whatever GeForce and Intel drivers on my desktop and Surface Book. If I uninstall all the GeForce drivers on my Surface Book it'll install the ones from Windows Update but if install nVidia reference drivers it's WU never overrides the later drivers. Same thing with Intel iGPU drivers.

This has been a hunch of mine, might be completely wrong but what level of telemetry are you using? Are you using some kind of tool to block out stuff? All of my telemetry/privacy settings are at default. And as I've said, never seen this happen and I find it weird that I can override the GPU drivers, both of them on a Surface Book and it never tried to reinstall from WU.

So I use to use an Ethernet cable and it worked fine until yesterday. Don't know what happened but this is how it went down. My brother was using the computer one night and the overclock I was testing failed on him. So he said he changed a few things in the BIOS without success and just turned it off. He has no clue what he did so in the morning I turned it on and reset the BIOS to its stock settings. It started up and the internet just wouldn't connect, says the drivers are not installed. I connect a wireless card and download the drivers then install them but they still don't appear when i go to the device manager. There is no "Network Adapters" option unless the wireless usb card is plugged in. I have no idea what happened. How can I fix this missing driver problem?

I'm not sure this is the correct section for this question. If not I apologize. I just got a new modem to use to internet on multiple computers. I got the wireless Dell laptop hooked up to the internet with no problem. But I have been unable to get a internet connection for the desktop. I get some error message regarding the computer trying to find the IP address but it's unable to do so. I called my internet service provider and the guy, who use to work with Dell (the computer I have is Dell Dimension 2400) and he said I may need to update or reinstall my "network card driver". And that Dell should be able to help me through this. Or I could get a wireless card to use for the desktop computer.

I also should mentioned that originally, when I had the regular modem, the installtion desk from my internet service, prompted me to use Ethernet cord. So I was using that at first. I had a problem with internet explorer (which I eventually resolved myself by uninstalling McAfee) and I think it was the Bell South customer service rep that had me switch from Ethernet to USB. Since then I have experienced connectivity problems, even though I have DSL. I tried to reconnect it to the Ethernet card before but Dell and Bell South could not help. So I just went back to using the USB. But unfortunately this wireless modem only has a Ethernet outlet.

Hi there, hope you can help me with a problem. I have tried googling this, and asking friends, but to no avail.

Basically my OS, Vista Home Premium, reinstalls several of my drivers every time I start my PC.

If I view hidden devices in device manager, I can see that it has reinstalled my network card, sound card, TV card, PCI-to-PCI bridges and Audio controllers well over 40 times each.

I have tried running ccleaner and using the repair function on my vista disk to repair startup. I have tried uninstalling all the devices, including the hidden "previous" versions and reinstalling all the latest drivers.

One thing that may be of note is that if I restart my computer, the drivers will stay installed. It is only if I completely power down my computer then start it up again that I have this problem.

I believe the issue started around the time I was trying to get my old keyboard working. During that time I followed these two suggested links from logitech to try and fix it, which involved a few changes.

Hi,

I was experiencing a recurrent PARTIAL blue screen of death, similar to this but without any error message (system just froze with blue columns crossing my screen).

So I uninstalled several versions of my nvidia 8800 GTS driver until it only showed as "Standard VGA driver" by Microsoft. I then reinstalled the most recent driver by Nvidia.

When I restarted my computer, the problem seemed to be solved but it seems like it deleted some of my files. My Documents folder and my Downloads folders are empty... About 15 Gb of data are GONE. My programs are still there (or so it seems), but Spybot and tea timer no longer run on startup, my folder options are reset, etc.

Did I do something wrong, and can I get my files back?

Here is exactly what I did: in device manager, I right-clicked my video card and clicked "uninstall". Then I restarted my computer and upon restart I repeated the process until my card showed as "Standard VGA driver" or something like it. Then I restarted again and installed the newest driver.

I'll provide any more information as necessary.

Hi d00d557,

It's possible that the virus/spyware corrupted the O/S as well. Perform a windows repair and then try re-installing the computer hardware drivers again and see if that helps resolve your computer issues.

Since you have your files backed up, you can also reformat the HDD and perform a fresh install of windows. Hope everything works out well for you.

Hi guys

After "successfully" booting into windows after changing motherboard whitout reinstalling windows I have some issues that I think mostly is driver related. Everything in desktop look the same, windows seem very stable and many programs seem to work but I have a hard time installing new drivers and gettiing online.

Serious problems:
1. Installing new drivers often fail.
2. Windows automatic "Installing device drivers software" routine have runned for 3-4 hours now and all drivers have "failed".
3. Updating drivers in device manager just hang forever.

Minor issues:
4. When shutting down/restart it hang on "shutting down" after leaving desktopc for a long time.
In the end it BSOD each time with this message: driver power state failure

I have a fairly old notebook that I have been doing a pretty good job of keeping on life support. I've updated and upgraded everything and everything else works just peachy except now I have a problem with WinXP and the CD-ROM drive.

The notebook is a Toshiba Satellite 2250CDT with a TEAC CD-224E-B CD-ROM drive. In Device Manager there is a yellow exclamation point on this drive. The Device status is "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupt or missing (Code 39)".

I'm guessing the TEAC driver is incompatible with WinXP and there is nothing on the TEAC or Toshiba websites. Is there such a thing as a generic driver? I've scoured the web looking for an answer and you may be my last great hope. Any ideas?

I own a second hand Mesh computer and I have none of the official documentation. Recently I reformatted my pc to Windows XP Professional SP3 and did my best to collect drivers and so forth. The problem I am having is installing the correct driver for my Ethernet Port.

I found that I needed the driver associated with the motherboard -- ASUS P5N-E SLI. Went to the manufacturers site and located the LAN driver here -- http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5N-E SLI

I cannot work out how to install this driver. There is no .EXE and after a closer investigation I found it to be a Remote Installation. I did a google search but with my little knowledge of the topic, nothing seemed to answer my installation query. The documentation included speaks of a RIS image and an unknown directory to me -- RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\I386

Any help on installing this driver? If there is any extra information needed, I'll do my best. Thanks in advance, I know how useful this forum can be.

I'm stuck. I have a Windows 7 Pro machine that boots to a black screen with a cursor instead of the login prompt, though if I tap some keys like enter and tab I'll get some blue squares where probably windows are appearing.

I can boot to safe mode and log in. I can then disable or uninstall the video adapter and boot into the normal Windows. But if I install the Intel drivers for the HD3000 integrated video, the black screen will be there waiting for me when I reboot.

I've tried with and without external monitors connected.

I've tried uninstalling the drivers from the programs and features menu (also selecting to completely remove the drivers), and I've uninstalled them through the device manager. I then reboot before installing the Intel drivers again. I've tried the version on Panasonic's website as well as the latest version from Intel's website. Results have been the same every time.

Are there registry keys left behind somewhere that I could try deleting? Perhaps some more thorough method of removal? Something more creative? All ideas welcome!

I recently installed win xp pro on a couple of friends pc's after the dreaded BSOD and noticed that most of the video, audio and modem drivers were missing( showing up as big yellow question marks in device manager) so I got a corporate edition of xp pro with sp3 slipstreamed into it. I used this disk on a pc the other day and same thing happened(Is this common?) anyway I downloaded all the drivers from the dell site and checked the pc, played cd,played video and connected to the internet all ok. problem I'm faced with now is the owner uses a usb dongle ( from his mobile phone company) to get on the 'net but it wont work on the pc yet if I put it in mine it works fine, I was thinking it was something to do with the usb ports but then how come the keyboard and mouse still work.
next idea was maybe it something to do with the wireless driver, I checked device manager but can't find anything wrong, so I guess I don't know what I'm looking for, so I came here for enlightenment

Hello!
I am new here, and I hope someone here can really help me out of this dilemma. My wife somehow downloaded and installed a certain driver she thought it was to be upgraded for Window XP Pro. After she rebooted it, she got as far as just before the log on, everything freeze. I ask if she remembers what the driver was she downloaded and installed, she didn?t know for sure what it was. I try booting into WinXP Pro Safe Mode, and it did the same thin, mouse and all. I cannot log onto Safe Mode. Believing it may have been a certain driver in conflict with something incompatible ? possibly the USB ? I unplug all the devices using the USB including the mouse. The results are still the same, if froze as before. I use the command.exe to run chkdsi /r to see if it can repair it. That one fails. I try using the WinXP CD in an attempt to repair the Windows without losing the data. That didn?t work either.
My only option is possible reformatting the hard drive, but I do not want to reformat the hard drive until I can figure out how I can retrieve the important data (My Documents). I remember I can easily do that with Windows 95 using the DOS command by coping most of my files to the floppy disk. It was time consuming, but it was worth it before the invention of the Flash. Now I can?t figured out how I can retrieve the data to be copy to the Flash since WinXP doesn?t work like Windows 95. The hard drive, by the way, is healthy. It?s just like I say, there is a driver conflict that... Read more

A:WINXP Driver Incompatible?

Using the Windows Installation disk, did you try running "chkdsk /f" ? If so did it report and/or fix any errors ? Run chkdsk multiple times and get several clean scans before moving on; the HD may be getting ready to fail.

Also, in Recovery Console, run "fixboot" and "fixmbr".

Try Safe Mode. When booting to Safe Mode, disconnect ALL hardware except for the keyboard.

If all of these fail, you may need to run a Repair Install.

Is the WinXP disk you are using the correct one for you installation ?

A:WinXP driver issues

Hi, Your motherboard has a chipset from VIA, and usually you must install motherboard drivers from an install CD, or download from the support site for the Gigabyte board...did you do this?
You have an onboard video adapter/chip. May need to disable it in the BIOS....I am not sure as some allow you to just install an added in card and load new drivers, some do not.
You may have to load the Standard VGA adapter drivers, then after that is loaded and running in 16 color (yuck) you can install the right drivers for your OS and the Radeon and it will install.
I would review the instructions from the mobo manual for installing an add in video card- the manual, if you do not have one, is here::
http://www.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/Products/Products_GA-7VKMP.htm
manual found in the list on the left.
Reading the FAQs might be quicker than opening the manual online with Adobe Acrobat.... but, it says "Coming soon" for them...oh well, manual is best I can do, unless you or someone can hunt for details on how to use add in video card easily.
Might be just the standard step by step, uninstall all video drivers and switch to SVGA, then install new ones. Safe Mode can help with this.

Note that there is a 7VKMP-P version of this board.

I just got a second-hand Dell Optiplex GX260. The original purchaser bought it with XP pre-loaded, and had only the reinstallation CD, which I got. Unfortunately, the CD says "This CD is not for reinstallation of programs or drivers." This apparently is true as I'm finding that I have to use the device mfr's disk to get drivers whenever I attach something to the computer. I was wondering if there's a separate driver disk that came with computer (the guy I bought from doesn't recall), and if so, where I can get one. I tried calling Dell, but got tired of pressing and holding.

Strange, 'cause everything worked fine under the previous install of WinXP.

Alright, I give up. If you go into your Windows XP device manager and View > Show Hidden Devices, look under Network adapters. You'll see WAN Miniport drivers, probably several of them. Unfortunately, on one of my Windows XP Pro machines, I don't. They're not there. Now, they're just software drivers, so it should be quite easy... but how do I add them?

I just exported related registry settings from a similar, but working computer. Specifically, those referring to the ndiswan and related drivers. It seems that the most important of those are in Local_Machine\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\Root\MS_NDIS...

Then, I temporarily changed the permissions using regedt32 on the non-working computer so that I could modify the Root folder... And imported! With a restart, the missing devices are showing up.

Hi, recently I've been having some problems with my computer so I decided to give it a reformat. Up to this point I used to leave my computer at BestBuy to get things done because quite frankly I don't know squat about computers. But this time around I wanted to learn my way around the advanced aspects of computer maintenance, so I decided to do it myself.

At first I had to learn what BIOS is and how to make my computer boot from CD rom. No biggie, didn't take me too long. But when it got to the actual installation part I got a message that read something like "hard disk not detected." I gave it another try before searching the net again for an answer. I found one case in a different tech forum that was similar to mine, and most of the replies suggested that he either needed a fresh RAID driver install or reinstall in a different driver mode. After fiddling around on Dell's support page for a bit with the help of a very, very kind person I met online I finally made a RAID driver disk and gave the whole thing ANOTHER try. No dice, it still couldn't detect the hard disk even after the drivers were installed.

So I simply decided to try the whole thing in different driver mode and I'm afraid this is what sealed my fate. I was able to fdisk in "RAID autodetect / ATA" mode (it was originally set to "RAID autodetect / AHCI" mode) and install a new copy of Windows - except I can't install any drivers necessary to ru...

I am trying to reinstall WinXp onto my Dell Inspiron 2200. I had no problems with the OS when I installed it. But when it comes time to extract and install from the Drivers and Utilities disk, many of the drivers applications and utilities simply do not install. I get what seems to be one of two error messages. Either that an object was not found, or it cannot install on this system. The only utilities that seemed to install without a problem where ones that worked for WinXp and Win2000 and that were also listed as compatible with every Inspiron model type in the drop down list. A few months back I reinstalled WinXp on this machine without these problems using the same two disks. I do remember that when using the Drivers and Utilites disk, Inspiron 2200 was not a model number available on the drop down list. XPS, 600m, 300m, 8600, and 1150 were on there to name a few. I recall using the files for one of those model types and never having any problems. Anyone know if any models out there use the same drivers as a 2200? Or if something may have went wrong when I installed WinXp. Thanks.
