After XP SP2, generic video drivers look terrible
Posted on 2004-11-16
I've got some no-name Windows XP PCs on our network that came from who knows where (no documentation, no manuals, no web site to download docs, drivers, etc.). When I put SP2 on one of them, the video was just terrible ( 2 colors, very low resolution, couldn't change any of the settings, was basically on old VGA type of setting). It's a standard video built in to the motherboard, no video adapter card or anything. The video drivers were just generic VGA, with no information to tell me what drivers I needed. I uninstalled SP2 and the normal resolution returned. Question: how do I update the drivers if I don't know anything about what's on the motherboard?
