Hi :)

I have an HP Pavillion a6020 Desktop I am Running XP Pro on it(Did not Like Vista) I amhaving problems with my graphics, when i go to the Device Manager where it says Other Devices there is a yellow question mark and underneath that is another yellow question mark followed by Video Controller (VGA Comatible).

I have checked out the HP website and it was not helpful at all, then I went to the Intel Site and after running the app to check my system it says it was unknown.

My Chipset is Intel 82945G

I would be very thankful if someone could help me please.

Well, it's always a good idea to check for available drivers BEFORE downgrading.

My Chipset is Intel 82945G

Where did you get the above info from?
I can see here: http://h10025.www1.h...product=3888572, that your chipset is NVIDIA GeForce 7100 / NVIDIA nForce 630i

Download System Information for Windows: http://www.gtopala.c...w-download.html to your Desktop.
Get SIW Standalone (English-Only).
Double click on siw.exe to run the program.
Go File>Create Report File>HTML
Save the file to known location.
Zip the file, and attach it to your next reply.

Downloaded this, it looks like a program to configure the driver manually and I have not got a clue on how to do something like that :)

You didn't install any extra video card in that computer, did you?
Everything is at original computer settings?

The only thing I installed was the XP Pro and nothing else. Everything else is as it was when I got it new.

At this point, I'm not sure, what else I could advice.
Unfortunately, downgrading (what for?) may bring some unexpected issues.
