  1. 1. My popup message appears after rebooting computer. It says the ATI Driver is not working. I searched microsoft & internet, trying to find one. It's not in yellow in device manager. ati display driver version 8.15-050607a-024880c-hp

    2. Yesterday I tried to download IE#7 first (i previously had trouble with IE#8 before my computer crashed). IE#7 would not open up, it only blinked, so I removed it. Why wouldn't it open.

    When my computer crashed it went back to IE#6.

    1. I found a video driver cd for the video card. It kept saying not to install it because it wasn't windows approved. I took a chance & I installed the driver. And the scrolling has stopped. and the yellow mark is gone. (It was for- nvidia ge force 8500gt).. The new card was for our Flight Simulator X. Thank You.

    I think the origininal card driver was an ATI, and is now replaced by the = nvidia ge force 8500gt

    ATI drivers only work for ATI cards. If you have the 8500GT then go to the nVidia website and download the latest drivers there.

    Thank You. That worked. I also was finally able to download SP3. So far it is working too.
