Well, the issue I'm having is that i reformatted my laptop to do a fresh install of XP, before i did this i backed up my drivers on an external hard drive, which crashed shortly after i completed the fresh install of xp... so i have been trying to reinstall all my drivers, and have successfully (or at least i believe it was successfully...) installed most of my drivers except two.
the fist one is a PCI Modem with ven 1002, dev 4378, which after doing some research is an ATI SB400 AC97 Modem Controller.
The second is the Video Controller Ven 1002 dev 5955, which is ATI mobility radeon xpress 200.
I have found drivers for these from HP by using the PCIDatabase.com website, but once i try to install them they tell me
"INF error video driver not found." and "setup was unable to complete the installation try to setup your display adapter with standard VGA driver before running setup." when i try to install both of these.
Also, for some reason my laptop doesn't have sound either, even though the device manager doesn't show that my audio driver is not functioning (this is why i say i believe i installed them correctly...)
can someone please help me fix my laptop.
oh yeah i forgot to mention my laptop is a compaq presario v2000. any other information that is needed please ask.
