    Try downloading and installing the chipset driver from here.

    No it didnt work sadly. Are there any conflicting devices from what I presented. Do you need more info. If so tell me how to get it and I will try my best to get it for you :)

    Try installing the latest BIOS update from here (confirm this is right for your system before installing).

    Here are some things I need answered:
    1) Where are you seeing this message? Post a screenshot please.
    2) Did it start to come up recently? Did it come up after installing something?

    Do you think you can post your full system specs (especially Display Adapters).

    1.) Device manager under display adapters
    2.) Issue came up when I sent my computer to get fixed. This computer was originally toshiba but we took out the hardrive and put it into HP laptop. The only driver that seems to be not working fully is the Display Adapter.

    Well that is your problem. You have a bunch of junk drivers that are installed on the OS, but are not compatible with the PC. It seems that your old PC had an ATI GPU and the new one has an Intel one. The drivers are conflicting.

    I think clean installing Windows is the best and maybe only option (you do not need a 64bit OS when you have 1GB of RAM).

    Is there a way to install a new windows without deleting my stuff?

    Also does the drivers that are installed get removed ?

    I would just backup anything you need (your files) and just clean install (delete everything). That will take away any conflicts 100%.

    For everyone who has this problem.

    Search for this AMD PCI Express (3GIO) Filter Driver on device manager, and change the drivers for PCI BUS , thats solve the problem.

    Don't think that will work . His laptop is Intel. Plus this thread has more or less been solved.
