    Remove the card

    Look for it on there.
    First go to sysdm/device manager/Display adapters.
    But you really should have a cd then use website "update drivers "
    Why don't you have a cd ?:confused:


    Name your OS Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeze.

    yeah, you can always open up your case and take a look at the card there should be a label on the back of the card with it's name on it

    I think you need a new video card with cd and manual included.

    does anyone know if everest will detect the card if the drivers haven't been installed yet?

    If it does then download and install this:

    reinstall

    Remove your entries where mine are shown,if it's not named.
    as you stated above.
    Restart your PC and XP should show
    Windows detects new hardware.Don't stop it.
    I got this help from Microsoft Tech support to solve my problem.
    But you still need the drivers for it.
