    It sounds like when your computer was re-formated, the drivers where not installed as they should have been. Who did it for you?

    Before we can send you in the right direction for your driver, we need some more information. Your motherboard has integrated graphics, but you also have an AGP slot for video.

    We need to know if you are using an AGP card for your video (and if so what card is it), or if you are using the integrated graphics on the motherboard.

    After we know the answer to that question, we can help you find the right drivers which should fix you up!

    Alright then, if we load up the drivers for your motherboard, that should fix you up.

    but..... the ASUS website is down right now. Grrrrrrr.

    Can you give a bit more details?

    What drivers are you trying to install? (what are the file names and where did you get them from)?

    How are you trying to install them, and exactly what happens (in detail).

    In your hardware manager, what is currently listed for your video controller?

    Something is odd, and I'm afraid I don't know what else to suggest until ASUS's website comes back up.

    It is odd that you can not install the drivers from the CD that came with your board.

    I see Didou is online now... maybe he can step in and help?
