:whistling: I have a Dell Optiplex DIM2400 Celeron CPU 2.40GHz 512 MB of RAM I am running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 2
A few days go my resolution dropped to the lowest point. I found in the Hardware of my device manager that Display Adapter was opened and a yellow ! was on Video Controller (VGA compatible) I tried to update the driver and before it was complete, it said there was an unknown error found and installation would close. I went to the properties and it said there was no driver installed. I downloaded the driver I had. Intel 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics controller. Before it was completed with the installation, I got the same message that I had gotten with updating the driver. Is there a graphics Driver that is compatible with my PC that I can download and get to work? I don't know what else to do. Please help I have also unistalled and tried re-installing and get the same unknown error.
