Hello

I recently installed xp professional with service pack 2. The thing is, every time i install a new graphics driver my monitor goes "mad"
My screen resolution has a strange value and then every time I try to change it, just says do you want to keep the new changes, when nothing has happened. This also happens with the option color quality.

The only way I can escape this is to do rollback driver.

My card is a fx5600 256mb. This is very bad as i need new drivers to play my pc games

in the device manager uninstall the card
reboot tapping f8 and choose vga mode
when windows finishes rebooting and reinstalling the card
disable a/virus
install your drivers
reboot the computer

there should not be any drivers to roll back to,when you don't remove the current drivers before installing the new,the 2 versions conflict
