I had repair installed XP it took some of my drivers off, I managed to get all of them back except for my video card (ATI)
I dont remeber what kind of ATI card it is so I dont know what driver to get.
Is there anything I can do to figure out what it is?

Download and run Aida32 You will be able to find information on your graphics card with that! :thumbsup:

Is this a lap top, or a desk top? Store bought or garage build. If it is a store bought then going to the manufacturers website and looking up the particular model should tell you the card brand. Will probably provide the driver as well. At the very least it should tell you what graphics card(s) came installed. If your not fussy then running Windows updates may supply the MS version of the driver as well.

I hope that "WU" does not stand for "Windows update".

Windows Update has been known to load/install the wrong drivers on systems, resulting in problems for the system/user. Windows Update is fine for critical updates, but I would not suggest using it to update hardware drivers.

Try using the freeware version of SIW System Information for Windows - http://www.gtopala.com/ to find out what your display adapter is.

Getting warmer...try the line that says Video (2 lines under Slots). That should say ATI, etc.

Those are sub-categories...place the mouse on the word "Video".

Isn't it nice to learn new tricks :thumbsup:?

Since it is an AGP detection by the tried\suggested programs may have been dropped.

You can always go the old fashion route. Pop open the case, pop out the card. The chip set should be marked. The card may actually be stamped with the model as well.

Just my .02
I just hate garbageing up a machine with programs that that are not doing what I need`d them to do.
