Hi i used to have an Xp but then i got vista home premium. thats when i discovered that my video card sucked soo that is why my computer was running slow.
I then got an ATI Radeon Hd 2600 Pro AGP, sooooo now i have this Multimedia Video Controller problem. it doesnt say anything about it, it doesnt give me any sort of detail about it. All i know is that if i disable it, my video card stops working.

Sooooo can anyone help me please.

that is the normal windows answer, go to the ATI site and search for the latest drivers for that card.

What specific subvendor is it (Sapphire, Diamond, Asus, Etc.). Take a look at your card and see what it says on the fan. Then I can go to the vendor site and find the exact driver.

Ok it says Radeon HD 2600 Pro on top, on the top right corner it says 8xAGP, and below all of that is just says VisionTek.

Press the "PrintScreen" button, it may also say "PrntScrn". Then go into paint and go to "Edit">"Paste", save it as something and go to techspot.com and upload it in Gallery. Give me a link when you do.

Does that screen shot work?
If so do i overwrite and extract. or do i confirm before overwriting, ooor do i just skip everything and dont extract?

Then change the extraction folder to My Documents, if you extract it to a temp folder, it will be almost impossible to find.

Once you've changed it to My Documents "or documents since you are on vista", extract it there.
