Hi, This problem has been discussed a lot, but I haven't seen any conclusive answer on how to fix my current problem. Please read -- you're help is greatly appreciated: My friend bought an upgraded copy of XP and decided to upgrade his version of XP to a valid, registered copy (XP SP2). Upgrading anything is a nightmare -- he should have never done this. He has an ATI 9600SE Video card and uses 2 monitors. Ever since upgrading, the ATI driver is no where to be found, AND in Device Manager, there is NO node for "Display Adapter" -- it simply doesn't exist. After deleting every trace of any ATI video drivers on his system, I downloaded the latest version of the ATI catalyst software and tried reinstalling, but everytime I do this, I get the following error in the middle of installation: Setup was unable to complete the installation. Try to setup your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup. When I go to Display Property / Settings, there is no mention of a display adapter there -- (I couldn't use 2 monitors if I wanted, because there is no option to do so). When I go to advanced, the adapter is the "VGASafe" windows adapter. So, I think that the standard VGA adapter is ALREADY installed (it is DEFINITELY VGA resolution, so it has to be using a driver, and it must be using THIS driver, which I believe is windows' "standard VGA driver", is this correct?) One of my thoughts, was to "upgrade" or reinstall the ATI driver through this advanced tab, but since it's not listed, I don't think I can do that. I've also tried putting a new ATI video card in the computer and installing the driver, but still same outcome. Here are my questions: 1. Is there a way to "reinstall" the "standard VGA driver" in win XP so that this issue might go away? 2. Does anyone know why my Display Adapter node is not showing up in Device Manager? Thanks very much for your help -- I'm at a loss and I do not want to reformat and start over. Thanks!!!
