GFX Driver problem in WinXP
Posted on 2003-03-23
I just installed WinXP Pro on a friends computer who had Windows ME on it previously. I also updated it with SP1. He has a GF2 MX400 which worked perfectly previously, but now Im having problems with the drivers in WinXP. Under hardware profiles, it shows that the nvidia driver (41.09) is installed, but under Display properties where there should be settings, appearance, etc. tabs, there is only the Desktop theme tab. I have tried uninstalling the driver, using the Microsoft driver, reinstalling again, but this problem does not go away. Maybe a shared IRQ problem?? I haven't checked that out yet but it might be that. I have tried different nvidia drivers, but WinXP doesnt seem to like any of them. The strange thing is that the desktop seems to be set at 1024x768 with at least 16 bit color, which leads me to believe that the driver is working somewhat. Im out of ideas, thanks.
