Recently, video games have been crashing a lot. Under "Other Devices," Video Controller (VGA Compatible) has a yellow exclamation point. When I try to reinstall the driver, Windows Update can't find it. I get a new hardware wizard every time I reboot. I have an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 in the machine with up-to-date drivers. I'm running XP. Help. ;_;

Are you sure the driver for your card is installed?
From what you have posted it is not.

Is this the driver you have installed?

Yes, that's the one. There's an exe on my desktop. I ran it, it installed, it asked me to reboot. Did all the above. And I have the Nvidia control panel and stuff on my task bar.

Can you ID this error for me?
Please do this:
Open the Device Manager
Post ALL errors you may have (yellow!)

Right click on the error>Properties>Details Tab
Post the info you find under Device Instance ID

Do this for each error you have

Hello!
I just want to suggest that you first uninstall graphic card drivers from your system completely.
Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall graphic card drivers.
To be 100% sure you have uninstalled graphic card drivers, you can use DriverSwipper:

Driver Swipper download link

After you uninstall graphic card drivers, reboot the system and then install drivers which BCCOMP has provided...
But do not go through Update driver section, but install it by launching .exe file...
When Found New Hardware Wizard pops up, click cancel and launch .exe file which you have on Desktop instead...

I hope this will help you mate...

I have no idea how to use the program you gave me. I uninstalled "Nvidia Drivers" through add and remove programs and rebooted when prompted to. When I run Drvier Sweeper, 7 things display:

ATI - Display
Creative - Sound
Microsoft - Mouse
NVIDIA - Chipset
NVIDIA - Display
NVIDIA - PhysX
Realtek - Sound

What do I do?

My sound is acting funny since I've uninstalled the video drivers. When I try to do things like scroll in chrome, I get scratching noises through my speakers if I have music playing. This may be normal when operating without an installed graphics driver.

Also, this may help someone [see attached].

What is the exact make and model of this computer?
Did you run Drive Sweeper. If not DO NOT RUN IT (yet)
You are showing two display drivers (Which I thought was the issue)
One is probably the Nvidia FX card and the ON-Board ATI Card

It's probably even worse than that BCCOMP. The onboard is a SiS 651. I then threw in an ATI card [9200... or 9600.. I can't even remember]. I took that out later, and put in the current Nvidia; I probably never properly uninstalled the ATI drivers, since I know little about drivers. The computer is a Medion.

EDIT: And yes, I ran driver sweeper already. The results of that scan are listed in a prior post, the first of the triple post above.

Medion what?
There should be a serial number on the tower some where.
Please post it if you find it.

Also please do this:
Open the Device Manager

Post the info you find under Device Instance ID

Are these the only errors you have in the Device Manager?

Yes. Those are the only yellow exclamation points displayed in Device Manager (two Video Controllers).

Enter the BIOS and disable the ON-Board Video
Then reinstall the Nvidia Graphics Driver
Check the Device Manager for any errors
Post any errors you have.

Hi,

I am assumiong you are using the Nvidia card for your graphics display.

To enter the BIOS:
Shut down the computer and reboot
At the very beginning of the boot up you may "see" Press Del, F1 or F2 (or similar) to enter Setup (or BIOS)

If you get to Windows you have gone to far.

Once in the Setup (BIOS) the on-board video is usually under the Advance tab.
Disable it or post the options you have.
Save and exit the BIOS.

The computer will reboot.
Once booted into windows install the Nvidia driver:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html

The issue you are having (two VGA errors) is you have both the On-Board and the nvidia card enabled. This can cause conflicts, but I am not totally sure this is causing your system crashes.

The on-board video is an SIS integrated (on-board).
It is not needed if you have an additional video card installed.

If you wish to have this driver you can find it here:
http://www.sis.com/download/

Select: XP
Select: IGP Graphics Driver
Select: SIS650 & SIS740 series
File Name: uvga3_373.zip

Let us know how you make out.

Bill
