Hi I just got my computer fixed thanks to the help on here since I got testendonline in Sep. now I need help getting the drivers for my video card I opened the case last night and was able to see it is a ATI Radeon and on the little green sticker it say's x1300 PRO AGP 256M I think.

And right now I don't have standby the box is grayed out is that because of the video card? And one more little thing when I am using IE the computer keeps poping up the little hourglass even when I am just sitting reading a post on this forum it goes on for like 2 seconds then stops for 3 seconds and repeats and makes my fans run fast just started doing that today.

Thank You.

Hi gmrx,

Regarding Video Drivers:
If you have a brand name computer; Dell, HP, etc., and the video card came with the system, then obtain the video drivers from manufacturer's web site.
If not, here is a link to ATI Radeon X1300 Series drivers for a desktop system running either Win XP home or professional.
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/radeonaiw_xp.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.13&lang=English
Please verify that your card is listed.

Regarding greyed out "standby" button:
Try this, if video driver update doesn't fix it.

Regarding hour glass in IE:
Not sure about this one. I see that you have updated to all post SP3 updates. Are you now running IE 8.0?

Regards,
Brooks
