    Please enable Direct3D acceleration. You can do this by starting dxdiag and enabling Direct3D Acceleration in the Display1/2 tab after installing DirectX 8.1b (or later) and the latest drivers for your graphics card.

    to make sure you have the latest DirectX click here

    Also, to run the DirectX diagnostic tool (for your current version or again should you see it needs updating) click here

    It appears that your laptop comes with ATI Radeon Xpress 200 integrated graphics. If I'm right, go here to download the latest graphics driver: AMD/ATI website

    I don't understand what happened to the original graphics driver. Did you reformat recently?

    "setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardeware or operating system. setup will now exit."

    Is this the name of the file?: 8-6-igp_xp32_dd_ccc_wdm_sb_gart_enu_64783.exe

    When you double click on the file or open it in the Run box, it is supposed to install itself.

    Try SIW. It is a freeware program that should tell you what graphics card you have. Download it from here: SIW

    Select the Standalone version. It doesn't have to be installed. Just double click on the file. When it comes up, look at the left column and find and click on Video.

    We want to find out what kind of graphics "card" you have so we can find and install the proper graphics driver for it. For that, please highlight "Video" instead of "DirectX."
