Re: Why can I not install...
tubaloth: "What happens when you try to install the drivers? Does it say those drivers are not the correct ones? Do you get an error that happens?
If you do, search the internet with the same wording.
Have you tried going to the Manufacture site (Either of your computer or of the graphic drivers) and see if they have more up to date ones"
I don't even get the option to install any drivers. I wish there were any way I could attach screenshots to posts - that would make the problem obvious at a glance...it's no wonder almost all other forums have that option.
Anyway, I right-click the desktop and select Properties > Settings > Adapter > Properties > Driver and get a dialog headed "Properties for VGA-Save".
Any options are grayed out, VGA-Save is the default Microsoft driver, I suppose. Anyway: nothing to do there. Going back a step I select the Monitor tab whereupon get a dialog headed "Properties for (Standard Monitor)".
Again, any options are grayed out except OK and Cancel.
It's not like I haven't done this before - it may well be my 50:th XP installation in the past two years. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I guess I'll just reinstall.
It's a good thing that's my second, obsolete PC. The one I write this reply on is, thank goodness, running Windows 7 where everything just works from the word go.
R. Proffitt:I install from a compiled disc which has some Windows 7 features tacked on (e.g. Aero) so I don't have the options you describe.
Thank you both for replying.
