    Go to www.nvidia.com and install a new display driver. At the same place, install your chipset driver for your board and that will take care of all the rest.
    Chipset driver first and then display.

    Click on download drivers, then see option 2, which can scan for what you need. It doesn't work for me, but then you can manually select your chipset.

    LOL, YEP. I was referring to the other post (nvidia.com) and when I was reaching for the reply button I hear another message coming in and of course it was about your reply. :D
    That has happened a few times I've noticed.:)

    No big deal. I just mentioned it because if the OP used my link, the options you mentioned wouldn't be there, but the ones from the end of your post would be. :D

    Ok I know what's going on now. I misplaced my chipset driver CD so when I reformatted my computer it just didn't have the chipset drivers with it. So should I download a driver anyway?

    This is what was in the paper for the mainboard.

    Asus - AMD /S939
    A8N-E (Audio/Glan)nF4 Ultra
    Socket 939 - ATX
    4 DDR DIMM/4GB MAX,SATA150 RAID & ATA/133, 3P+ 2PCI-X + PCI-X16, ALC8508-Channel Audio, MarvellGigabit Lan, USB2.0

    So on Nvidia I would choose; nforce, nforce 4 series, nforce 4 ultra AMD, and XP?

    Try the automatic motherboard drivers scan at the bottom of the page linked above.

    You have an nForce 4 Ultra Chipset.

    Ok I did that auto detect thing and it said:

    Product: nforce 4 series

    Recommended driver: nForce Driver Version 6.86
    Version: 6.86 WHQL
    Release Date: July 7, 2006

    It is the same driver when I did the manual thing as well.
