File needed to install Video drivers

I was wondering if anyone knew which file or files are needed to install video drivers.

I deleted something I shouldn't have...actually, I saved what I deleted, so I have the file. I just don't know which one I need to put back.

Let me explain the symptoms. If I go into safemode, the screen looks all fuzzy and off-colored, like I need to degauss my monitor.

And I can't update my video drivers. When I try to update from nVidia I get an installation error. When try to update the drivers from Windows Update it fails to install.

I would delete all your existing video drives, as in deleting your video card in device manager, and letting windows find the card itself, then you can install drivers ok, i would say.

Thanks, I tried that. It made everything worse. Even my desktop got weird, and Windows didn't find the driver. I had to re-install to get back to my drive image.

I need to know the files names or do a complete re-install.

I'm not into fixing application problems. If something goes wrong, I back up files, and reinstall windows XP. That fixes everything for me :) There is most likely a better soultion though. I suggest someone moves this thread into an appropriate topic. That may more help will be found.

Then this morning in in Disk Cleanup I set it to compress files not accessed in 7 days. 325 dlls in system32 showed up in blue (compressed), so I deleted them...(Actually, I deleted and saved them...I'm only a little stupid.)

I even deleted 80 unused drivers in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers. And all the compressed files in C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS and its sub-folders.

Deleting DLLs is very bad. Like putting a blindfold on someone really stupid. They can still hear you, but they won't do the right task..

( lol what a bad association )

Yeah, but someday...

Just wait until I get XP down to 300MB, with just 200 system files doing the work, and this old machine out-performs the supercharged systems of today.

You'll all be coming to me, saying, "Bold, please tell me which files to delete."

They laughed at Columbus. They laughed at that deaf composer guy. They laughed at Martha Stewart....well, yeah.

Anyway, the day shall come for my ticker-tape parade. :)
