problem with the graphics driver
Posted 28 March 2005 - 03:00 AM
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?

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....

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

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.....
