I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,
I am new to this forum..
To start, I had just bought an ASUS computer.. wanting to play games like borderlands 1, left for dead 2 etc. But, when I was very trilled waiting to start the games, both of them had blacked screen and forced shutdown my computer every time after the game has been launched!
I had done many researches in the net, changing the registry values in directx11, reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers (halfway black screen upon reinstalling), changing the compatibility to Windows 7, adding missing physxcudart_20 to the games...None of them works..T-T
Any help is greatly appreciated!
 

A:Unable to install Nvidia driver and also to play games on Windows 8.1

I'd recommend to do the following:

Perform a clean install of Windows

Re-install Nvidia drivers
Download CPU-Z and GPU-Z (or any CPU and GPU monitoring software)
Monitor both while attempting to play games - check for temperature spikes.
Doing the above will help you rule out a lot of potential issues that are causing your problems. The clean windows install will get rid of any OS related issues. You never want to touch the windows registry unless you really have to, especially if you're not very well versed in the way it works. It can cause way more harm than good. With that said, the system crashes were probably due to a bad driver instillation and was causing a BSOD - most modern systems are set to restart / shutdown when this happens. You'll never know it happened unless you changed the configuration to stop the automatic shutdown. It could also be temperature related, if your CPU or GPU overheats, it'll typically trigger a system crash as well and result in the same BSOD sequence.

Let me know how it goes after you've tried what I've mentioned.

I was updating my graphics card drivers for my graphic card PNY GEFORCE GTX 660 and went to device manager, I used ?automatically search for new driver? and a dialog box appeared "Windows has determined that the driver is up to date".
Yet, I went to Nvidia website and did a driver update. I checked again Device manager for my display adapter and the new driver was TWO MONTHS NEWER.
I wonder why that happens.

So I have 2 images from the Device manager.
The driver has a Yellow caution sign with "!" inside it.



My issues:
Cannot Connect to wireless, But can connect via Ethernet Cable.

My troubleshooter said the drive couldn't start, and that I needed a Wireless Cable to plugin to the computer.

This is my school computer, my help desk helped before but they are out of office because its summer break.

I tried disabling my Bluetooth High Speed, it did nothing.

A:Atheros AR5B97 driver not letting me connect to wireless

Hi and welcome to the boards.

How old is this system? Sometimes the wireless card will fail and a new one can be installed.

However, you can upload and install the latest wireless network driver for your system via ethernet cable. Sometimes that is all you need. If it is a built system like a Dell then go to the manufacture's website if this was a system that was built by yourself or someone else then go to the motherboard's website.

Please keep us updated.

NOW, without the graphics card the computer runs fine. When I install the ddriver's for the r9 it will work, but eventually the display driver stopped working makes its way back.

I've ran all diagnostics on the memory and checked temperstures which all turned out to be fine.

I sent the card into xfx and they returned it saying it's fine.

WTF DO I DO MATES. I think it's the card....but that's just me.

Hello,

I own a custom laptop on an MSI 16F2 platform. Few weeks ago my GTX 670M card died.

Out of better options, I bought an used GTX 660M from an acquaintance.

I had it installed, started Windows and everything looked OK. Then I installed the Nvidia drivers and after reboot, right after the loading screen, I got a black screen (with the screen still lit).

I went into Safe mode and uninstalled the driver. Then installed again and got the same result. Went into Bios, change settings, tried resetting CMOS, nothing worked. Installed Windows 7 Ultimate again, then Windows 8, same thing. I also tried the driver modding instructions on this forum, still nothing.

I have no clue what is wrong. If you have any idea, please help me with this.

Thank you,

Fox

I and Driver responding stopped recovered has purchased an HP-f wm with an Intel N processor about a month ago It s running Windows I also bought a mouse for it since it s not a touch screen that allows me to scroll side to side and makes not having the touch screen easier to Driver stopped responding and has recovered operate The what I thought was Driver stopped responding and has recovered mouse started freezing in the middle of using it to surf the net or working in documents it Driver stopped responding and has recovered just freezes for a bit then starts working again Last night I got an error message after it did this saying the driver had stopped working and recovered I didn t notice that it said which driver I found a fix for this on the Microsoft website but it was for Windows I have tried to do all the updates that it needed when I first got it but I have to do them a few at a time as they fail if I try to do them all at once I have gone through and done several of these one at a time Recent updates have successfully installed it s just the ones needed when I first started using it that are a problem I have about left from Sept-Dec Any advice would be appreciated I got this from Amazon so I have no support nor can I return it nbsp

A:Driver stopped responding and has recovered

Two suggestions:

Try installing the software under "Windows 7" preferances. When you go to install the software (I do not have windows 8.1 myself, just going off Windows 7 features) Right click the installer and go to properties. Under "Compatibility" select "Compatibility Mode" as "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select Windows 7.

Also select the "Priviledge Level" to make sure there is a checkmark in "Run this program as an administrator"
The other option is to find any driver software that is installed with the mouse and ensure that it is changed to these settings as well. If you want me to go into depth about how to do that I can explain further. But the general idea is to find the .EXE for the software that starts with windows and change the properties to the same as you did with the installer.

Greetings reader

So im using a Radeon HD 6870 in my MSI 890gxm-g65.
Installed the hardware and when I run it on on-board graphics, windows is able to detect it as ATI Radeon HD 6800 Series. But after installing the driver for the 6870 it asks for a restart.
The BIOS screen is visible but after the windows loading screen the display just goes off, the LCD in on but it's just black screen.

I have a lot of work to do, so ill be really grateful if someone is willing to help me.

Thank You

I have a USB drive on my WinXP that does not work. The error message that I get , when I plug a flash drive in, says that the driver for the USB drive has not been installed.

Now I have 6 USB's on the system. All of them work but this one.
Device Manager shows 5 "Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller" entries. I assume these are for the 5 working USB drives(?) Am I missing one more USB entry for the 6th USB drive that does not work?

I need to install the missing driver for the 6th USB, but don't know how. I head that you could just uninstall all of the "Standard USB Host Controller" entries and have WinXP. re-install them after re-boot, but am not sure if this is correct.

Any help with installing the missing USB driver?

Hi all I Acer update 8935g driver screen GPU blank after recently updated the driver for the Ati card in my laptop during the installation the screen had gone blank and has stayed that way ever since But first heres a back story I started having trouble with the laptop a few months ago when I assume the ati card had overheated and caused the screen to flicker this laptop comes with an Intel card also which you can switch to by pressing the power save button near the keyboard The intel card ran just fine and if I output the video through hdmi the ati card would work fine also Acer 8935g screen blank after GPU driver update which led me to Acer 8935g screen blank after GPU driver update believe that there maybe an issue with the screen Also if I kept pressing the power save button and switching between cards the ati card would eventually begin to work normally on the laptops screen I wanted to update my drivers today as they were a couple of years old I had trouble installing them in the past as there was a conflict between both gpu cards so I became frustrated and left it I used Ati s auto detect tool and it began to install the new drivers when the screen went blank I thought this was normal during a driver update but I left the laptop running and it stayed that way for over an hour So I turned the laptop off using the main power button Probably wasnt a good idea I imagine Now the screen just stays blank even if I try to switch to the intel card Any help on this issue will be much appreciated nbsp

just recently received my Samsung SSD to install my windows 7 ultimate finally after a bit of time messing with that I got windows completely installed so I can either boot off the hdd or my ssd. I have had no luck figuring out how to get drivers from the hdd to ssd though. I can't even get on internet to try looking for drivers. so I tried backing up drivers on the double driver program I've tried burning backup divers to disk. can someone please tell me how to my drivers restored on my ssd!
 

A:Fresh install OS to SSD driver backup

I have no idea why you can't get on the internet. By default windows 7 has supports almost every (if not every) on board ethernet ports. If not then you'll have to get at least the lan drivers for your motherboard and then download the rest of the drivers you need once you get the onboard land running.

Is this a laptop, desktop ? If its a desktop did you build it yourself? If not what make model is it? You can go online to the manufacturuers website and download device drivers for your laptop/desktop.

If it is something you (or someone else) built then there should be a driver disk that came with your motherboard.

Alternatively you could use driver genius to get the job done. I'm not sure if the "free" version allows you to backup drivers but I know the paid one does.

If the card is making noise and giving Windows errors, replace it. The noise is coming from the fan. Is anything touching the fan inside the case?

Hello,

I'm trying to update the drivers on my Radeon x600 256MB graphics card with Windows XP 32 bit.

I downloaded the following file described as the ATI Catalyst Driver 10.2 (XP): download-euro <dot> oldapps <dot> com/ATI/10-2_xp32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu.exe

On running this download, it has installed Catalyst Install Manager in C:\Program Files\ATI\CIM\Bin, but I have no idea what I need to do next!

Running Install Manager and following the steps through seems to do something, though looking at device manager, it doesn't look as though the driver has been updated (it's still version 8.162.0.0)...

Thanks in advance

Hi!

I have a problem with my graphics card. I use NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 which has 3 video input: VGA, DVI, and HDMI. I use two output displays for my monitor and my HDTV.

I used to connect my monitor via VGA cable and my HDTV via DVI to HDMI cable. I used DVI to HDMI cable for my HDTV because the HDMI input in my graphic cards didn't recognize whenever i want to connect with my HDTV.

However things changed when I updating my driver to version 285.62 recently (this is the first time I update since two years ago). Suddenly, the DVI input didn't connect to my HDTV but the HDMI input works fine!! So, I changed my HDTV input from DVI input to my HDMI.

My question is: How to use both the HDMI and DVI input altogether? Does anyone have ever experience the same thing?

Thanks in advance! Really appreciate your help
 

A:DVI not recognized after updating driver

It might not be possible. From the specs I see on nvidia.com (http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_gts_250_us.html), the chipset supports 2 digital outputs. What they may have done on your card is set one output to be the VGA using some sort of digital to VGA bridge and then shared the HDMI and DVI outputs so you could only use one or the other. There may be a software setting somewhere to toggle which one but that I can't help with.

When in safe mode, Windows is not using the graphics card driver. While it is in safe mode the graphics card is still being used. If it wasn't, you wouldn't get any display at all.

Download the current AMD/ATI graphics driver that is compatible with your operating system. Then uninstall the old graphics driver from Add and Remove Programs (XP) or Programs and Features (Vista and Windows 7). Install the new driver and see if that fixes your problem.

Since the person who originally bought the card threw the box with the disc away i had to download the drivers and installation from online. I downloaded all the drivers and catalyst and when i go to install the products it appears to install and even says finished but when i look it doesnt seem to actually install anything at all even on a restart. The catalyst control center doesnt show up on my start menu and the graphics card still appears as uninstalled in the device manager. Does anyone happen to know what the problem is or how to fix it?

A:Lexmark Z23 color ink problems

From Lexmark's knowledge base:

While using a clean pencil eraser, clean the contact points on the copper strip (only the little squares just below the bar code). Caution! Do not use the eraser on the nozzles that were cleaned, as this will damage the cartridge.

Using a clean part of your dry paper towel, wipe the eraser dust off the contacts; ensure that they are dry, and snap the cartridge back into the printer.

The closest model that i found is ASUS P5GL-MX that is without the T so its -MX instead of -TMX.

I have tried everything to get my Laptop ( win vista ) to communicate with my Lexmark printer. All my network connection and sharing seem to be in order. The only 'unconnected' thing I see is my Local Area Connection is unplugged. But, I am running on a wireless connection and my router along with my key in is perfectly fine...I think. The error message reads; Unable to connect with printer/computer...and tells me to check my ports, wires, and firewall. Check, check and check! I really wish I was more savvy when it comes to these sorts of things. I would truly appreciate any help I can get. I am trying to print my resume for 3 upcoming interviews.
 

A:Lexmark 2600 series will not print; any relation to my LAN being unplugged?

hmm; story goes like this;
If the printer is directly attached to another system, then Print/File Sharing will control access to the printer.

If the printer is directly attached to the router, then the device is a 'network device' and it is an issue with networking.
Your WiFi connectin to that router SHOULD be sufficient for access to all network devices (assuming all systems have the same subnet) and any Print/File Shares(assuming all systems are on the same WorkGroup Name...).

It is spelled DVD ROM, DVD RAM or CD/DVD drive. Are both the DVD and the hard drive IDE (Big 40 wire flat cable)? If you can't boot with the DVD drive connected, check to see that both the IDE Hard drive and the IDE DVD drive's jumpers are set in the CS (cable select) position. You can set the IDE hard drive to (M)Master and the IDE DVD drive to (S)Slave. They can not be the same, except when setting to both drives to CS. The giant box is the power supply. You can buy Molex 4-pin to SATA power connectors...

A:Can't see DVD driver in my computers

did this 'fix' involve getting inside the computer case? if its a SATA type DVD driver make sure that the connector at either end is not been bumped loose. the older style sata data cables without the connection clip are notorious for coming loose a bit and loosing their connection.

So I have an SD card reader slot on my laptop, an Acer Aspire 3690, when I put a memory card into the slot, it doesnt read it or even acknowledge it. When I open My Computer it doesnt show up at all. I can see and read it on my pc, but seem to have trouble with it on my laptop, where I want to use it. I have searched for any kind of driver updates or downloads but haven't found any kind of solution or answer to what the problem actually is or how I can fix it. Can someone please help me?
 

A:SD device/driver/reader problem

Hi

if its an SD card reader then there is a size limit it can read, usually 512mb is the most, if the card is a 1gb or higher then it needs a SDHC reader which your PC probably has.

I cannot quite pin-point when this problem started but my screen keeps blacking out for a few seconds at a time (randomly) and then recovers displaying the message that the display driver (nvlddmkm) stopped working and has recovered.

This always causes Windows Media Player to crash (I often have a DVD playing on my monitor).

I have followed advice such as updating drivers etc. but the Nvidia site says my drivers are as up to date as possible. I've also tried turning the Aero theme off and reducing the number of flashy Windows animations but to no avail.

I have also found that recently, games which previously ran perfectly fine (e.g. Dragon Age) no longer work and crash within a minute of gameplay.

Let me know what other details you need.

Thanks!
 

A:Up to date display driver stops working

My first though is that the graphics driver or the graphics card are defective. Try uninstalling the graphics card in Device Manager and reinstall a fresh driver from Nvidia.

If this is a desktop PC, do you have onboard graphics or a card fitted. If you have a card and onboard grahics, run it from the onboard graphics with the card removed.

This might be a memory fault, if you have more than one memory stick run the PC with only one installed and then if crashes continue swap the sticks to test performance with each stick.

You could also try a scan with Malwarebytes just to check if you have any infections. Download the free version from here, install it and let it update before running a full system scan.

I have an old PC here that I am trying to wipe clean and reinstall Windows XP onto. Before I can do this, however, I need the driver for the old HDD that's been installed. It's a Hitachi Deskstar 7k250 part# hds722580vlsa80. I have been searching all day and I can't find one anywhere. I realize that it's dated technology, but I am hoping someone can help.

Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
 

A:Hitachi Deskstar 7k250. I need the driver

You're looking for the wrong driver, sort of. You really want the motherboard SATA controller driver. When installing XP onto a SATA hard drive, you need to install the SATA/RAID driver at the F6 prompt at the beginning of Windows Setup but you need a floppy drive for this. If you don't have a floppy, you can make a slipstream CD with the SATA driver included. There are plenty of guides on the internet on how to make them.

The card (Geforce 9600 GSO) has been fine for a year or so since i bought it, but a few days ago while ALT-TABBING between screens it locked up and crashed the PC.
I get the following message when i use the device manager "find a solution"

Windows was able to successfully install device driver software, but the driver software encountered a problem when it tried to run. The problem code is 43.

I have tried reinstalling the card and drivers but it seems to make no difference.

You can try using system restore to a point before this crash.

If that doesn't work:

try using driver sweeper to clean it out.

Then go the NVIDIA web site and install the drivers.

Hello!

I have Sims 2 and Spore. Both pop up error messages saying "Could not create the Graphics Device. DirectX is not avaliable. [1002]" (Spore) and "Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate." (Sims 2)

I have gone to the website, and it tells me I have the latest version. I'm pretty sure I have the latest driver, but I'm not sure. Will someone please help me?
 

A:DirectX driver problem

These messages typically mean your graphics solution is not supported by the game and, therefore, cannot run it. If you have a laptop, you are likely out of luck. If you have a desktop, you might be able to install a supported graphics card.

Everything was going great until I accidentally knocked out the video cable when I was using the computer and now, every time I turn on the computer, the display shows there's no signal right after the windows loading screen. It'll only work in safe mode or if I uninstall the display adapter driver.

I will include the information from one of the dumps below. I am at my wits end, how do I correct the issue so I can turn the accelerators back on and put an end to the issue?

In the past week I've been having issues with my speakers. For some reason they do not seem to detect my audio drivers. My little speaker icon displays "no audio output device is installed". I've tried many things, but they all seem to fail. I've tried restarting my computer, reformatting my computer, updating my audio driver, uninstalling and reinstalling my audio driver, downloading the newest update from my computer manufacturer's website, downloading the drivers directly from the Realtek website. For a while, downloading the drivers from the realtek website worked, but my computer would crash and then the sound would fail again. I've tried reinstalling the realtek hd audio driver through the device manager, but it gives me an error and says it can't install.

any solution?
 

A:Radeon x1900xtx driver error

i have an error saying that the drivers is not compatible with the windows logo.Click to expand...

Windows XP allows you to install both signed and unsigned drivers (unsigned drivers are drivers that haven't passed the "compatible with Windows logo" test)

When you see the message, is Windows actually stopping the drivers from being installed? Or does it give you the option to click Continue to complete the install? Just click Continue to let the driver install complete

Note: you can set your Driver Signing policy to Warn so you will be prompted and then you can hit Continue

Rt click My Computer->Properties, click Hardware tab, click Driver Signing button
> Check Warn
> Check Make this action system default
> Click OK and close the windows

It's common to install unsigned drivers in XP. Click OK if you know the source of the driver (as you do in this case)

Hey guys,

Windows Vista 32-bit
AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core processor 6400 +
2gb ram
Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT

So I went to Nvidia and downloaded the latest driver, at the time it was 260.89 I believe and it failed, and so does the most current driver (260.99). But when I tried to download it my first time (260.89), it totally changed everything:

1. Now I can't play ANY games because it gives me error messages like "Unable to initialize renderer"
2. DxDiag only shows "N/A" next to basically everything under the Display tab.
3. The sleep option is now grayed out

Whenever I try to download the drivers again the Graphics Driver installation always fails.

So what the hell happened? Does anyone know how to fix this?
 

A:Nvidia 260.99 graphics driver install failed

Hi Nohone welcome to Techspot,

have you tried doing a rollback on the graphics card? this will hopefully revert your drivers back to the origional setup. You can do this from the hardware setup OR via system restore and re-set your computer BACK to a date before you installed the drivers. This wont effect your personal files but MAY effect any new software you may have installed.

Also make sure you ahve downloaded the correct drivers for it i.e. the VISTA-32 bit drivers instead of the VISTA-64 bit drivers.

A link for the latest driver for your graphics card can be found here:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-32bit-260.99-whql-driver.html


Hope this helps

A:Video driver update difficulty

If it were me I would use system restore (it works better from safe mode) to go back to before you installed the driver that messed you up.
Anytime you update your graphics drivers you should use a cleaner to remove any traces of the old one, otherwise you can have problems. I often use driver cleaner pro (the free version) from within windows immediately after uninstalling from the add/remove programs section (XP). Remove all drivers for the graphics but leave any chipset stuff for nvidia alone. Here's the order I uninstall (nview desktop manager then drivers then display control panel will give you an error cause the driver unistall allready got it) You can also uninstall the physx drivers if you have them and download a new version if you need it.

Then run "driver cleaner pro" (google it but download from a place you trust) and select the word "nvidia" only, thats the graphics drivers leave the chipset stuff alone. It will even remove the folder under your C drive where nVidia likes to extract its stuff. Then reboot and go into safe mode (for me its the F8 button repeatedly at boot) and in safe mode install the new drivers.

Failed to install a core driver means there was something still active on your machine and it couldn't replace it while it was running.

The best way to be sure you get drivers for your machine is to go to the nvida site and follow the support section entering your info as you go (usually a few windows putting the appropriate info in order, but its for cards only, not onboard video, if you have onboard video you have to go to the mobo manufacturers site). Start with your graphics (geforce) then the series (like 8) your card number (like a 8800gt) and finally your OS. there is also a button for letting them scan your machine and tell you what you need automatically. I don't do warcraft or any online gaming so I can't help you but perhaps installing the latest directx 9.0c (june redistibutable) might be a good idea too.

All your icons got big cause it reverted back to just a generic VGA driver when the install failed and your desktop looked like you were in safe mode where drivers do not get loaded but most can be installed.

Always helpful to state your OS first.

You definitely need to install drivers for the Base system Devices. Did you get a driver CD with your notebook or do you have a restore partition? if so go to device manager and click on the yelow item and right mouse on it and select: "Update driver" let it search for the driver, may take quite long. If successful with thiose two then try the unkown and then re-install your video driver, making sure you have the correct version, are you positive it is Mobile Intel 4 series express family?

In the Device Manager\Display Adapters all it says is 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' I know for a fact that my video card is Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS TurboCache, but when I install the driver for this I get a BSOD error. I tried the automatic search on nvidia.com/drivers and installed the driver that came up, the same happened. Is there a way to have Windows recognize my video card as the one stated above?

I have an e Machine T-series with Ati Radeon xpress 200 series. recently the borders and text in any window started becoming very "fuzzy looking", making it very difficult to read text.. I tried the system recovery with no change. Should I try to update the video drivers from a a download site or, replace the card on the board? plz help, I cant afford a new computer. thanks so much.
 

A:Updating video driver vs replacing video card

if this has degraded overtime and was not fixed with a restore of the system it's probably a hardware issue and won't be fixed by a driver update. Have you checked to be sure it's not the monitor? Do you have another video card you can try just to see if that fixes the issue?

Hey, I just updated my Nvidia 9800GT drivers, but forgot to uninstall my previous drivers, since then, i've had a black screen when I turn on my PC. I'm on XP. does anybody know a way to get back into my PC?
 

A:Possible driver conflict, black screen

Start Windows in safe mode. Tap the F8 key a few times as the PC is booting. Once Windows starts in safe mode go to Add and Remove Programs to uninstall all of your graphic drivers. Restart and then install the Nvidia graphics driver again.

I need to know before I buy a new videocard because my main driver is ialmrnt5 for my current videocard. My driver is Intel82865G.
I have problems with my main driver ialmrnt5. The screen freezes for 10 seconds then everything goes 4-bit and the color quality is very low.
I've tried formatting my PC twice, updating my driver, set my BIOS settings from PCI to Onboard/AGP....
Will getting a new videocard solve this problem? I plan to buy Geforce. I don't want my money to go to waste.
Please help!!!!
 

A:Will buying a new videocard solve my ialmrnt5 display driver problems?

Sounds like the onboard GPU may be on its last leg. When you install a graphics card the integrated unit gets disabled (you will probably need to do this yourself) so it will definitely fix the problem. -But before you go buying something we need a bit of information first, like your budget, power supply specs, and graphics bus type (AGP 4x or 8x).

Before you install a new video card, you need to uninstall any existing display drivers and disable the onboard device. Once this is done, you can install the new graphics card and boot the system normally. Download and install the latest drivers for the card and restart the computer. You should be done after that.

Ok, so when it comes to computers I am in the dark ages! I have a Gateway and until a week ago I had well working speakers. Now I have no sound, speakers or headphones. I have gone into control panel and it says I have no drivers, then I went to Device manager and as far as I can tell it says my driver is there and working properly. I am stumped and need help.
 

A:No sound, driver seems to be present

I presume you have a Windows operating system. What version of Windows?

Please explain what you mean by this. Exactly what in the Control Panel says you have no drivers?

Ever since I've installed Battlefield 1942 on my PC, I have problems with my ialmrnt5 display driver. It was too late to discover that the requirements doesn't match with my current settings.
My screen goes into a colorful 4-bit bonanza after it stops for about 5-10 seconds.

I've tried formatting my PC twice,

Updating my driver to no avail, even it's from the Intel website the problem still occurs.

I've tried removing my driver in safe mode then installing the latest driver

For now, I've removed 3D acceleration on my display settings so that this problem won't happen regularly. I'm planning to buy a new video card (GeForce) to solve this problem. I want to make sure it would solve this problem once and for all.
 

A:Should I buy a new videocard since my ialmrnt5 display driver is hopeless?

If the problem is in fact caused by the intel video driver then getting a new video card should fix the issue.

Hey i have a problem for some while with my sound i have realtek ac97, the problem first started when i was watching a movie and slowlly the sound was starting to disintegreate(dont know how to discribe it sry my english is bad), and then i had no more sound.....and my pc rebooted.... After i started my pc i had perfect sound for about 5-10 min. and then my pc will reboot again, i tried reinstalling the sound driver but nothing happens my volume icon is gone, i had to desable the sound from bios so i could use the pc. I reinstalled windows(XP SP2) and now i cant install the sound driver in any form.Please help!
 

A:Bad sound driver error:88780078

you can't install the driver now because it's disabled in BIOS. if i were you i would just spend a little bit of money on a dedicated sound card; keep the integrated SPU disabled. or, if you want to give it another shot post your motherboard's specs and we can direct you to the latest version audio drivers for it. if installing the latest driver doesn't help, uninstall it and re-disable it; go out and buy a sound card... you will have better sound quality that way anyways.

Periodically, I get BSODs which seem to be a result of my HD 4850 "ATI RAdeon Kernel Mod Driver".
I was going to update to the latest driver, but have read of people having problems with the latest driver v10.3.
Anyone here update to this newest driver--did you have any problems and which OS are you using?
I'm using Vista 64 bit.
Thanks.
 

A:HD 4850 driver 10.3 troubles?

For some reason with previous drivers I had a weird problem with my display, it was blurry for some reason on 60hz refresh rate specially in the middle of the screen but was perfectly sharp when using 75hz. With the new 10.3 drivers dont have this problem, and no new problems either.
Something with AA I guess.. but anyways I'm running Vista 32bit
