finding the right driver
Posted on 2011-09-12
I use DriverAgent and now DriverGuide. Both give me different results. My main concern is why I can't get DriverAgent to acknowledge that the current driver for my Display Adapter is not the right one. I downloaded it as a secondary suggestion and it works fine. But DriverAgent continues to suggest I use its' primary suggestion which won't even install.
Furthermore, DriverGuide now finds many motherboard related driver updates for various components that DriverAgent didn't even see all this time. I paid for and have been using DriverAgent for several months now while DriverGuide I only just used as of last night.
Also, why has my Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA) changed to CyberBladeXP (69) when I run a check of my computer like SANDRA? Just because I installed the CyberBladeXP (69) driver, why should the graphics card identity change?
I hope someone can help.
In a possible related matter, I am wondering if this driver compatibility problem might be causing my Device Manager/Monitor to have two identical listings for my monitor. I can't get rid of one-it keeps coming back. I have a thread on this problem and I am receiving some help but so far no success.
I can be more specific as we go along. But I just typed all this info extremely specifically and went to hit submit when it all disappeared and I am currently very upset to say the least.
Thank you to all who can try and help.
