    Having a prob here with the VGA card - had to reinstall Win Xp Pro and now the VGA card is not recognised.

    I have looked on google and seen that quite a few people have had a similar message, but there have not been any suggestions for fixing it.

    I have downloaded the 25MB Catalyst from ATI but it will not install and tells me to install a standard windows VGA driver.
    In control panel I get the message that the VGA controller has no drivers loaded - when I try to install the ATI download I get the error message

    video driver not found


    How can I do that please - ie install a standard windows driver?? I have uninstalled/reinstalled the VGA card through the control panel but had no joy - is there a problem with the card do you think?

    I have stuck the XP disc in hoping it would find it there but no joy


    Thanks in advance

    this is the same problem another member had.. I believe it was gballard..
    .
    what he did was rollback to a previous install and the problems went away... unfortunately you can't do that though...

    I will have a look-see since this appears to be a new-ish problem...

    in the interim check out www.rage3d.com for any more information concerning this..

    Sorted it - went through Device Manager and then through all the ATI stuff and pointed to the driver on the HD I had downloaded from ati.com.

    Plain sailing from there on, then the control panel etc installed after that.

    Thanks for the advice.
