Video Driver stopped workign
Posted on 2011-03-04
Yesterday, in the course of normal operations, I re-started my Windows XP SP3 PC, and upon completion, the video would only display basic VGA. I run dual monitors off of an ATI Radeon HD-4600 series card (installed last summer). Device Mangler said
"Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"
Thinking I may have had a malware infection, I ran Combofix, which did in fact, remove several infections, but did not help my video. i have run CCLeaner and I have a full version of Registry Mechanic which runs at startup, each time I boot, so the registry is constantly cleaned.
System Restore will not complete successfully, no matter what date I piclk. Last known good confuiguration from Safe Boot menu did not help, nor did Driver Rollback.
My search, here and on interweb has not led me to any solution.
