I just installed windows XP on a laptop that I had bought, it had Vista on it originally.

When I started up the computer, I had to install the drivers for the video and sound. The on board card is an ATI 200M, I believe. I have no idea what the sound chip is. Is there a good program that I can use to verify that I have the video card I think I do? When I go to sytem information, it doesn't tell me what they are.

I downloaded the driver from ATI's site for the 200M, but when I go to setup it says that it couldn't find a driver compatible with my hardware or operating system.

The copmuter has no sound right now, and it has really crappy video. It's a Toshiba Satellite A100.

Thanks for any help,

You can use SIW to find out system information for your computer.

Also, can you be more specific with the model number of your computer. On the Toshiba website there are 7 different A100 models.

Thanks for that program, I'll have a closer look at it when I get some time.

My model number is PSAAKC - WA104C.

The video card seems to be the ATI Radeon Xpress 200M. I'm positive I downloaded those drivers for XP, and it didn't work, but I'll give that another try.

Try this driver.

THanks very much, that worked. I found the sound driver on realteks website, so everything seems to be working again, and I don't have to deal with Vista! Thanks agian.
