Can't get the standard vga driver...?

Isn't that what you have loaded now? I don't know what you mean....

What happens when you try to install it?

In device manager, (right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES< choose HARDWARE), any yellow !s?

Yeah, i also have a VAIO, but mines a PCG FRV37 laptop, and it gave me the same message. It starts the install of the ATI driver and then tells you it could not find the video driver or something like that and you need to configure your card to work with a standard vga driver. please help, because now i cant run CS:source!

Mine has the same graphics card. Look, something you should probably know is that the d*** video card isn't listed on the ATI website. Anywhere. And I mean on the discontinued products list, current products, upcoming produccts list, it doesnt even have any articles related to it. Oh yeah, try doing VAIO SYSTEM RECOVERY. It works sometimes and other times it'll screw things up more, but its the best chance youve got

ok sorry for the late reply havent been on lately, umm with the ATI drivers you need to download that cristalys or w/e its called right off the ati website, they have most of the drivers for there products but im guessing you have already tried this, well another thing that might be possible is un installing the driver and restarting your machine, and this problem might be coused byu a conflict, with the IRQ's on the PC im sorry that i dont remember the command at the moment to check if it is this thats the problem ill get back to you on this.

This is a maddening problem that I have only encountered with that chipset ati 354m. I even went so far as to remotely take over the original posters machine and try it myself to no avail. My last thought involved something that would require a user to be offline, and I emailed him the directions and never heard back from him, so for all I know it killed his Operating system

The problem is (or maybe) that the registry key is protected and cannot be changed while using the computer-- or it is something completely unrelated.

I had looked everywhere and never found someone who had a solution and posted it online, but the very worst thing is that I actually fixed this stupid problem once on a machine I had in front of me but that was more than a year ago and I cannot for the life of me recall what I did.

I'd love to get my hands on such a machine and give it another crack....

well just so u kno i just remembered, something like this that i worked on before, unfortunatly the solution was, giveing th eperson a new video card becouse that one conflicted with the all famous PCI1 IRQ's. but switching it did the trick.

right now im learning to be a Certified IT Pro but with problems like this, heh thats one of the reason that i joined this site so i could help out when ever i could and if i needed help i had somewhere to go, unfortunatly im not a person that goes on the net soo often.

is this card an onboard card or an AGP/PCI,
if i knew a bit mroe like which IRQ's it was useing i could help you out a bit more but like this i cant sorry. Ohh yah and with sony some of the customers i have tha have sent things to sony havent gotten them back for a month or so, or as i suggested they had there card replaced with a crappier one, that they probably had to pay for.

buisness makes the world go around, if there was non then we would live going backwards, in a much cleaner and safer world,(gangs and pickpockets are all buisness men when you think about it.)

sorry my philosofical side turned on, but regardless what i say i know i suck at spelling :tazz:

the ati34m is an integrated chipset cpu solution for laptops...it is integrated.

That said, now that you mention it......that sounds very familiar. I think that is how I addressed it before and it was a IRQ conflict.

delica88 (or whoever)

Go to device manager, right click and uninstall the Soundcard, modem, Network interface card, usb host controllers and root hubs AND THE DISPLAY ADAPTER. Reboot, but don't let windows start

Instead, drop into BIOS, look for anything that is integrated---NIC, audio, USB, modem all come to mind.

Switch them all from ENABLED to DISABLED.

Now, reboot, let windows reinstall the display adapter. If it installs the write one, fine, if not, install with the drivers you got from manufacturers. Reboot again.

Then drop into BIOS and re-enable each device one at a time, then start windows, then reboot, enable, reboot, enable.....

(crossing fingers)
