Fresh XP can't detect onboard video

by glysmo / March 28, 2005 10:56 AM PST

My first post.
I've just reinstalled. XP but it doesn't detect the onboard video or the Monitor (default). (Maybe default monitor is normal?)
Legen computer.
Winbond Motherboard (An FCC sticker but no number visible)
The onboard Video is a M vga compatible.
That should make it easy to find a driver no? But my efforts have so far failed.
INstalled in D.Manager under "other device"
When I update the driver it won't find any driver (in Win XP cd)
Right now it almost looks like i'm in safe mode.
Any idea as to where I could find such a basic generic vga compatible driver?

That's proper. Here's why.

Microsoft doesn't supply drivers for your system. Look for some driver CD or do what I do and go get the latest from the board maker.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
