I recently did a re-boot on my pc, I did a clean install of win xp. I have a Dell 2400 and am running xp home, 2gig harddrive, 512 ram. The install went smooth until I got to the part where you are at the desktop and you have to reinstall your onboard drivers. The drivers that had to be re-installed were: Audio Controller, Video Controller and the Ethernet Controller. I had the drivers backed up on my flash drive, so I proceeded to re-install them. I was able to successfully install the ethernet and audio driver, but when I get to the video driver, I am running into a problem. (Note: These drivers did not install with the xp operation). Every time I install the video driver, it says it has been installed and I need to restart, so I restart and then I wind up at a prompt screen that is black and it has options such as: "Start Windows Normally" Last Known Good Configuration or Safe Mode, Safe Mode w/ Networking etc. What I need to know is why is this happening and how do I correct it or if I am doing something wrong. I am extremely grateful for any support I can get as I have done this reboot a number of times and still wind up with the same problem. Anxiously awaiting an answer or suggestion. THANKING EVERYONE IN ADVANCE!!!!!!!!
