I reinstalled XP Home on a machine and can't get the video adapter driver to install. When I look at Diaplay Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> Adapter, the Adapter Type is blank and all of the Adapter Information shows <unavailable>. When I click Properties it shows the driver is VgaSave, which apparently runs as a service, and there is no option to update the driver.
The card is labeled MX400L and is an AGP card. I don't have the original disks, so I downloaded the drivers from http://www.albatron.com.tw/english/it/vga/driver.asp?pro_id=5
. I ran the setup program, rebooted, and nothing changed. When I look under System->Hardware-Device Manager, there is no Display Adapter section.
I try adding the hardware manually, select Have Disk and point to nv4_disp.inf from the driver download. The Model window returns empty so there is no hardware to choose for the installation.
I tried swapping the graphic cards and when the system is rebooted there is no indication of the hardware being recognized.
I also reinstalled the motherboard drivers and flashed the BIOS.
