My Device Manager is showing the following:
1)Under Display Adapters it shows "Mobile Intel® 945GM Express Chipset Family" twice. One of them has a red X through it.
2)Under Modems it shows "Agere Systems HDA Modem" with a Red X through it and "Standard Modem" with nothing (no yellow or red)
3)Under Portable Devices it shows "MTP Device" with a Yellow Exclamation through it.
I bought Uniblue Driver Scanner to help me find driver's. I fixed most, but there is one problem. Once I reboot my computer I am continually d/l and installing 7 drivers on first scan. One states that the d/l will take care of 6 drivers (these drivers would be under "other devices" in the the Device Manager). When I install them, a message comes up telling me that some did not install and to do another scan to update the drivers accordingly.
The other driver that comes up on first scan is under "systems devices" - I am continually d/l and installing "Mobile Intel® 945GM/PM/GMS/940GM?/943.." Once installed a prompt comes up saying that the Intell Chipset was extracted successfully.
On the second scan to catch the two drivers(from the first 6)not installed from the first scan here is what pops up:
1)Intel® 8280 1GBM/GHM (ICH-M Family) Serial ATA Storage Controller - 27C4. In my Device Manager under "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" it lists this very driver and there is no red x or yellow exclamation. When I try to update - it says I have the latest version. And when I check for hardware upgrades, nothing happens. I even D/L and installed this driver manually, and it's still an issue.
2)The "Mobile Intel® 945GM/PM/GMS/940GM7/943..." comes up AGAIN.
This has all come up b/c of my original issue of not being able to open/launch newer and safer browsers like IE8, or Google Chrome.
I have an Acer Travelmate 2480, Windows XP SP3 Professional Edition (Ver 2002), Intel CeleronM CPU, 1.60GHz, 504MB.
Any help/direction that can be given would be helpful!
