    Hey guys, heres teh deal. I reformatted my HD for teh first time, everything went well. i installed my sound card, ethernet adapter, and now i have to install my sound card. Problem is i dont know my video card make model. i download AIDA32 but where do i go from there? Also im getting alot of "illegal operation" errors, like on internet explorer and AIDA and other programs...what can be causing that? Teh sound card wouldnt have anythign to do with taht would it?

    Then come back and tell us what motherboard and video card you have.

    EDIT: After running AIDA v3.93, I see its pretty much the same.
    Motherboard info is in: Motherboard > motherboard (Need the ID & Name)
    Video info is in: Display > PCI/AGP Video (whatever is listed)

    JSanguancheu, i got it working. i went to display properties, settings, advanced, and then adapter and just changed it, i guess i had the driver all along, which really makes no scence to me lol. Anyway, The video card model i gave you was SiS 315, and when i directed it to the driver it says teh video card is a SiS 650_651_m650_740??? lol im really lost
