This is what I found. If it doesn't work go into Safe Mode and uninstall them.

First, we need more information about your computer. Who is the manufacturer of the computer? Acer? Is there a model number somewhere on the case of the computer. Is the video built into the motherboard or is it a separate card that uses one of the PCI slots( agp). Can you take the side cover of and make a list of any lettering on the motherboatd that might give us a clue of the make of MB. You also might download SIW to see if it can identify the video chipset.

You might try these.

http://members.drive...p?driverid=4488

From what i have read this is the PC Chips M754 L motherboard so you may be able to use these drivers.

the GFXPRO ide drivers

http://www.pcchipsus...d-mainframe.asp

Further down is the ALI 1647 Drivers for on-board video.

I am also reading something about using Nvidia TNT2 video drivers but think that is a long shot. If you do try them look in the archives for drivers older than the 71 series.
