Your computer may have the nimda worm. It damages certain files, including one used the displaying the license agreement for installations. You can download the nimdascan application from Symanatec and check out your system. I've have to do it with two computers so far this year.

Then you have to replaced the missing files. You may be able to extract them from the Cab files into the System folder.

Howdy:

Rather than hijack someone else's thread, you would be better served starting your own from now on okay?? :tazz:

On-board drivers can be found either on the systemboard driver cd you may have gotten with your system or are normally available from the manufacturers website!!

That's because you can't just move it, you have to install it..

Now, go into Device Manager.. right click on the grahics driver shown and select "update driver"..

When it asks where you want to get the update from, point it to the files you downloaded and extracted!!
