Hi guys, I've recently reinstalled Win XP and am missing a driver here's the pic:

I tried the Dell site, that's where I got the other drivers and I tried the AMD site because I got some drivers from there too.
The driver I'm using and it seems to work is the Display Driver on this page: http://support.amd.c...mp;lang=English

My hardware is ATI Radeon X1050 Series and I'm running XP Pro. I've tried the driver at: http://support.dell....p;fileid=158383

Which is supposed to be the right one but I get this when I install it:

And I can't change any screen settings when it's installed.

Can anyone help me with this please?

Try to investigate following this...

1. Open Device Manager (Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager)
2. The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it's easier to locate the device.
3. Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
4. Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
5. You should see a code similar to this

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086
&REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0

6. The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:

Vendor ID = 8086
Device ID = 27DC

7. Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to PCI Database. There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.

8. Then from there you can go directly to the hardware manufactureres website and get the driver.

Hi and thanks. I checked what you said and the Vendor ID = 4444, this didn't work on the site, try it yourself just to be sure.
Then I checked the Device ID which is 0016, this returned 8 matches but none of those have the same Vendor ID of 4444. I don't know what to do, could you check these numbers yourself to double check please?

P.S. What font are you using in your signature?

Among them, some TV tuner cards. Do you have TV tuner card, or does your video card has tuner capabilities?

I'm not sure, it's a second hand PC but I think it has a TV tuner card. There's a female slot at the back for a TV cable similar to this one: http://www.sinovideo...095530682/b.jpg

It looks like TV tuner card.
If you use it, we may try to find out what it is, if you don't use it, I wouldn't worry about that Device Manager entry then.

I won't be using it any time soon anyway so I'll just leave it, thanks for your help I really appreciate it, this is a great site.

Topic closed me thinks.
