It said that one or more of the needed files were missing or corrupt.

It didn't say anything about it having the latest though. Should I rollback, and would a system restore to the date before I installed my previous driver work, or is there an easier way?

What said it was missing file, the update, or the current driver when you tried to remove it?

Does it give any specific file that is missing?

Try downloading it again, and reinstalling it again. If it fails, do this:

Go to Start, Run, type sfc.exe /scannow and press enter. If it asks you for your Windows CD, please let me know. Put your CD in, and let it continue (if it asked for it). When it is finished, if it asked for the CD, restart your computer and see if you still have a problem installing. if it did not ask for a CD, then that means your XP files are good, and we will have to look somewhere else for the problem.

If you don't have the CD, and sfc /scannow asks you for it, then we're in a bit of trouble :blink: I've heard of a way to replace the damaged or missing files without the CD, but I've personally never done it before. I have the link...so if sfc /scannow asks for the CD, we can attempt to repair without it. Maybe we'll both learn something new. :whistling:

Let me know how it goes. (sfc and re-downloading)

Welp, same thing happened.

By the way, the files get unzipped fine, it's just when I try to install it I get the error message.

arrgg... :blink:

Well, it's a good thing that sfc /scannow didn't find anything. But that means the problem is somewhere else. :whistling:

Before we try a different driver, let's try updating your Direct X files. Go HERE and dowload the latest Direct X and install it.

Reboot afterwords and see if your problem still exists.

Same thing I'm afraid. : /

Should I rollback and try again, and if so, is there an easier way then system restore?

I'd saved a restore point before I'd installed the previous update, so a system restore would get rid of it...

Just to confirm, there isn't a way to uninstall an already installed driver without system restoring,right?

I mean,I'm gonna do this tomarrow when I'm less paranoid anyway,figured I'd confirm it.. : /

EDIT: Well, I'm system restoring now. I'll come back with the results.

Are you absolutely sure your video card is the one you posted in your first post? The only way to know for sure is either to go to the manufacturer's website (if the computer is store bought) or by opening the computer up and looking. I wouldn't trust what Device Manager says, because if you have the wrong one installed, it will display the wrong one.

In the meantime, I'll look for a different version of a driver for that video card which you posted in your first post. It might be tomorrow or Sunday before I get around to it, though. I would do it today, but I got a headache right now. :whistling:

Ok, I'll confirm the video card. Luckily, it's store bought.

And take your time with it, It's only a few games ya know. :whistling:

Sorry ta bug ya about this, but I would go to Gateway.com, or intel.com?

And again, I'm not sure on how to find the information once I'm there. Techno moron, remember. ._.
