Have one more interesting screen shoot on the unknown PCI device I talk about earlier. I think this bus is empty and the only PCI bus in use is PCIx16 for the graphic card. Also in device manager there is a similar yellow questionmark.

Second I don't understand why the video BIOS date is so old. I flashed system BIOS date 1 week ago to the newest dated 2009.11.18 as you see.
Everest cannot indentify my Motherboard and Chipset. It says: Motherboard Name and Motherboard Chipset Unknown

This is your GPU or video card

3D Accelerator ATI Radeon X300 (RV370)


Hwinfo32
Video Chipset: ATI RADEON X300/X550 (RV370)
Video Card: CONNECT 3D RADEON X300 128M

Everest
Video Adapter and 3D accelerator: ATI Radeon X300 (RV370) menu:expand display-->GPU
Video Adapter: CONNECT 3D RADEON X300 (128 MB) menu:expand computer--> summary

CPU-Z
GPU and display device selection: CONNECT 3D Radeon X300

Maybe this link will help to see the certified X300 video cards. My is the first one under the menu ATI Radeon™ X300.


I'm still not sure on how Nvidia drivers were decided to be installed.

Have unistalled win XP, formated the drive and installed OS again only with latest mobo and video card drivers and win update. Updated the mobo drivers at nvidia.com as they first suggested me to.


Who suggested the video card was Nvidia as it clearly shows it is a ATI?


No, I know that the video card is from ATI and also my drivers as I wrote before. I said that my mobo drivers is from nvidia.com and with "they first suggested me to" I mean that nvidia.com has an automatically detection called "Smart Scan tool" of mobo/video card (whatever you have) and the website recommends you which driver to install.

Yes, I'm ending up to the same webpage as earlier
It seems like the v10.2 is just the AMD Catalyst version dated 2010. Their driver is of lower version, see attached file.

In msconfig under software environment-->signed drivers, the device name "CONNECT 3D Radeon X300" is of driver v8.231.0.0 dated 2006-02-21 :)

Look under the catalyst software and you will see the WDM Integrated Driver
That is what you want.

So you mean I need option 2 instead of my current option 1 from amd

Should I just unistall the current driver first or just install the option 2-driver?
Some is also using driver sweeper, is that necessary?

Yes just the wdm driver

Just install wdm driver without doing anything to my current driver? Keep option 1 driver?
Should it be conflicts between the drivers?

The driver is installed. In its release note it says:

The WDM Driver Install bundle contains both the WDM Driver 6.14.10.1095 and 8.591.
The setup program automatically detects the graphic adapter installed in your system and
installs the appropriate WDM components for the graphic adapter.
The WDM version 8.591 will install on:

�� ATI All-in-Wonder™ X1900 Series
�� ATI All-in-Wonder™ X1800 Series
�� ATI All-in-Wonder™ X800 Series
�� ATI All-in-Wonder™ X600 Series
�� ATI All-in-Wonder™ 2006 Series
�� ATI All-in-Wonder™ 9800 Series
�� ATI All-in-Wonder™ 9600 Series

The WDM driver version 6.14.10.1095 will install on:

�� ATI Radeon™ 9200 Series or earlier ATI All-in-Wonder™ products
�� VIVO products

My graphic is not supported. However we will see what happens. Thank you for all help!

It seems like it was the graphic card that was the problem, not it drivers. As seen in my posted BSODs earlier the most crashes were refered to ATI-files. I replaced the card for about 3 weeks ago with new drivers without any more problems since then. It could take several weeks between the BSODs even before the replacement, so I can not say for sure that the problem is solved yet.

I got one BSOD though after the replacement, concerning the module aswsp.sys refering to AVAST. I replaced AVAST with Microsoft Security Essentials and no problems since then.

If I still concerning problems I will respond here.

Good to see replacement of the graphics card corrected that issue and replacing Avast took care of the last BSOD.
Thanks for the update and I look forward to your next update in a week or two. :)
