    I was trying to get a game to work and I thought it wasn't working because of my drivers so I ended up trying to fix things but ended up messing it all up. I was trying to update things but I ended up messing it up some how.

    my computer was built for me, but I have Windows XP and I don't know what else you need to know. My motherboard is nvidia nforce 600 I think AMB, I'm not sure what else. I know there are places to look to find out what I have but I don't remember how to do it, but if someone tells me how to do it I can do it.

    This is my problem, I know I had installed Nvidia nForce drivers and there were ATI drivers too and I know it said Radeon 1900/X1050 I believe. Things started getting messed up because I installed something from ATI thinking it was an update, but it wasn't I guess. So I ended up uninstalling all ATI drivers. Everything was okay before so I'm guessing I'm just not installing the right drivers. I don't know what drivers work. When I tried downloading them it said about needing a VGA video something in order to download the rest of the driver. That part never happened to be before, so I have no idea what that means. And now I can tell my graphics are all messed up because the screen drags, you can see lines when you drag a window and games won't work. If anyone can help me figure out what drivers I need I would appreciate it.

    Do a system restore to a date before you messed with the drivers. This will put everything back to the way it was before attempting the driver install.

    no it wont mess things up - just take your system back to before you messed with the drivers. Go to start, then ryght click on my computer then click on properties then system restore tab

    I do not use xp so this might be a little off as to where it is located. Start>run>accessories>system tools>system restore. Pick a date before you messed with it and choose to restore.

    No all data will be intact; just your system files/drivers get rolled back.
