Greetings.

I have a computer with integrated video. It appears the drivers are the wrong ones. Although it works, it doesn't work well. The refresh rate is pretty slow.. but it use to be fast before the user 'upgraded' the drivers. Roll back not possible. The problem here is that I have no idea what drivers to get. I went to the motherboard manufacturer with no luck. That is to say I downloaded their video drivers (with a setup.exe) and ran it but it told me I couldn't install the drivers. No reason given.

Maybe this is bigger than not knowing what drives the video on this system. I am open to ideas.

The motherboard is a KM400-M2 v1.0b which appears to be a ECS board.

any ideas? please be specific. I'm a little new to this.

Did you try the drivers at this site? They list it as a sound driver.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

By the looks of it, the sound driver is a sound driver. I pulled the video drivers from that site and its the same as the ones off of the ECS site. Setup fails.

I see no video drivers at the ECS site.

What makes you say that it's onboard video?

Could be a motherboard made for a boxmaker (Dell, Gateway, eMachine, etc.).

System manufacturer and model?

Click on drivers next to it or click this link http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads...=82&LanID=0

It's onboard video. It's attached to the motherboard and not a card. Integrated I think is the word used.

It was a built machine but not by Dell or HP. A guy I know builds them up from scratch all custom-like.

The "system" is, again, custom. The motherboard would be the only thing affecting this. That or the driver. I run Windows XP Professional on it.

Wada ya think?
