I am not too sure if this is the proper location for this post, however it seems like it should work anyways. Well, my problem is that i recently had to reformat and reinstall windows xp home on my laptop, however i wasn't able to make a backup of my drivers. All the drivers, except two ATI drivers, which i was able to find by using the manufacturer and hardware numbers on the device manager. I was able to install one of the two, however, the other one claims that i need to install the video driver before i could install the driver. I used an unregistered version of the driver detective software to see what drivers had issues, and the only relevant one that had issues was the video driver which i was trying to install.
Also, for some odd reason, when i try to install the DirectX software on the computer software that needs it doesnt recognize it and i dont see it in the Add/Remove Program program.
How could i fix these issues? I beleive that the core issue is the video driver. I am able to run the computer and use the internet, however other programs which i was able to use on this computer in the past, Guild Wars and Diablo 2 for instance, are not able to run because of the above issues.
Thanks in advance for the help.
