    Don't really know much about updating drivers so I was wondering if anyone can help me. These are my specs...

    AMD Athlon XP 1800+
    Windows XP Home
    NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX 440 (Driver Version
    512 MB DDRAM

    I just need someone to guide me to what I should download to update these. If there's any other info I should've added, let me know.

    Do Not use the windows update drivers for the video card, for that matter do not use windows update for any kind of drivers update. Use the manufacturers driver updates, after all they built the dang thing, not microsoft.

    The only reason I would use Windows update to update a driver is if there wasn't one available anywhere else.

    my opinion

    It's the SiS 735 chipset. I went to some sites to find an update but couldn't. Is there an update for this or not. If so, where can I find it.
