install standard vga driver xp sp2 Results

Sponsored Links:

I'm trying to upgrade my video driver but I need to install the standard VGA driver first. Is there a trick to doing this in XP? I have tried to uninstall the current driver, but everytime I restart, XP re-installs it! I thought if I went into safe mode, it would only load basic drivers but that's not the case.


whats happening forum?

i have a few questions
first my system info:

BIOS: V1.20
it came with windows xp and over the years ive been using it with sp2 but then i started using windows 7 in my friends computers and really liked it, so i downloaded and installed windows 7 ultimate and now im having some issues:

1. graphics - win7 installed standard vga graphics adapter (version 6.1.7600.16385) and ive been trying to install drivers for windows 7 like intel, nvidia and ati but all of them say that i dont have the minimum requirements or compatible hardware for the driver.

2. device manager is listing in "other devices" Base System Device with an exclamation mark. ive looked on the internet how to fix it but none of them work

3.Windows Media Player and DVDs - windows media players runs very slow with videos and the audio is out of sync and with the dvds also a little bit slow, but for viewing dvds i used a different program called dvd x player wich always worked great but now since i have win7 it now gives me an error about macrovision and i cant watched the dvd

can anyone please help me? because of this cant watch my dvds or play video games

please someone help me, can my problem be solved? or do i have to go back to windows xp?

much thanks in advance

ill be waiting for your responses.
