Hello Again Friends,

I would appreciate it very much if someone could give me the steps necessary to upgrade the graphics and sound drivers in my computer?

For Graphics I use - NVIDIA GeForce FX5200

For Sound I use - Realtek AC 97 Audio

With Thanks.

Whats wrong with your current drivers? Usually it is best to leave your drivers alone if they are working properly.

However here are the sites to download the drivers
nVidea Drivers for GeForce FX5200 for Windows XP

Driver Installation Hints

* "Download Accelerator" utilities should be disabled when downloading any drivers.

* Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly.

* Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove.
