Wow - I love this site
My computer can see my monitor in XP. I searched the device ID on that site you linked to and found it, downloaded the drivers and the install worked
I did think I had downloaded those drivers before but I guess it stuffed up somehow that time, anyway I am rapt! No more screen flicker, no more dodgy stretched resolution! Now to install Photoshop and see how it runs on here.
Oh, two other things as well I guess. There's a bit of a mess in the way of networking devices, as I installed a seperate PCI network card to access the network and internet. There are two network adaptors listed in device manager -
1394 Net Adapter
Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC
I figure the second one is the card. Then there is also the unknown Ethernet controller listed above.
Now, the network is working. Should I work on tidying up and probably removing the PCI card, or should I leave well enough alone?
I'm going to look for the drivers for the wireless network later, after I get PS and Office installed and get some work done! We're not running wireless atm anyway as we found it dropped out and as our computers are all in one room, cords are more reliable and just as easy at this stage.
And the other thing is that I would love to be able to do the dual boot. Those disks still haven't come (and its the 5th working day, they said 3-5), so I still have time to save that drive and complete what I was trying to acheive in the first place. Would be great to compare actual performance between the two operating systems.
