I've got a problem with my laptop's display and I'd really appreciate some help. I formatted it and now I don't have the right drivers and I don't know how to fix it because every time I try to install the right drivers from the ATI website (and believe me when I say I've tried a fair few) it tells me setup cannot complete and that I should try to set up my display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup.
It's an Advent 7102,
mobile AMD sempron 3000+
and a 15.4" widescreen TFT (XGA 1280*800).
It's currently on 1024*768 and everything's stretched and slightly blurry. That's the only option I have aside from 800*600.
It says the graphics are by ATI radeon xpress 200m with PCI xpress graphics. I'm on XP pro (sp2).
So, does anyone know how I should set up my display adapter with a standard VGA driver? Google would suggest this is a common-ish problem but I can't find any advice given to those who already posted it that works for me.
I've also tried uninstalling "video controller (vga compatible)" in the device manager which has a yellow ? next to it, and then installing the drivers from ATI but it doesn't work.
I'm at my wits end and I need to take the laptop to University soon so like I said I would really appreciate any help! Is there any other info I've left out?
