Install Drivers (have disk)

Hello all. I've just reinstalled windows and need to install the drivers to change the VGA on the screen. I've just found the disk but can't quite figure out how to do it. Can anyone walk me through this? Thanks, Jordan.

Hello JordanKingsley =)

U need to install the Video Card drivers,,, when u insert the installtion CD, it will autostart, or u can manully run the setup from browsing it :)

So run the setup and it will install the drivers for ur video card,,,, and if u are having an on-board video card, that means u need to install the drivers for the motherboard and it will correct the problem for u :)

Hello again Sheharyaar :). I've already ran the disk and the drivers must be a separate part of it. In the Physical Devices tree of the Everest Home Software there is a "Trident 3Dimage 985 Video Adapter" (so you know exactly how it's set up). How do I install the drivers correctly?

look on the disk for the files called filename.inf  these are the drivers - hopfully in a folder called something like WIN9X

Open comtrol Panel > system

locate the graphics card and double click it, on the properties select update driver, have disk and browse to the directory that has the .inf files in it and select them :)

job done

Well, I've tried what you just said to do three times now (update driver, have disk), but the message keeps coming up "Windows will keep your current driver" and nothing changes. There are no .inf files that I can see on the disk either. What else can I try?
