Hmm still gives me the same error. Wonder what's the problem.

BTW, the folder it extracts its files are already there, so I think I already installed this driver before. I'll try to delete those folders and install it again.

I'll post asap.

Thanks again.

Common, it appears

Can only suggest you email them and ask where to get the drivers

http://www.s3graphic...any/contact.jsp

Then see if you can find anything on their forums

This is for a different driver, but the cause may be the same, though check with them first

Thanks I checked that thread.

And looks like the poster fixed it by adding/granting permissions or something.. But this is an admin account I'm using. I don't know if he's talking about the registry keys?.

And I just remembered that this is the same driver I installed before. And that went fine, I wonder why it's having problem installing now, after I reinstalled XP.

Ok I guess I know how to solve this, but not sure yet.

http://www.morinfami...9823223000.html

That is what happened to me. I reinstalled/repaired XP, and during the process, it asked me for this file:

VIAAGP1.SYS

I don't know what that file is or where to find that so I just select Cancel.

I guess that's the root of the problem. WHat exactly is that file? And is it really the cause of this window-lag-dragged problem that I'm experiencing?

Do I have to reinstall/repair XP again so when it ask for that file I'll just browse for it? Or there is no need to reinstall/repair, can I just manually put that file somewhere (i have it now) ?

You should only need to install this and reboot

http://support.avera..._5.1.0.3442.exe

Then give the drivers a go
