    Hi. First let me say that I'm sorry in advance if this is a repost.

    Due to some problems with spyware/adware that I was having, I decided to reformat and re-install Windows XP on my computer. After doing this however, my computer did not detect that I had a graphics card or a sound card. I tried having it detect new hardware in device manager. I tried downloading the card drivers and installing them. Neither of those worked. So I reformatted and re-installed Windows XP again. It didn't work. My computer is still not detecting my graphics or sound card.

    Also, Both times I went to setup upon starting my computer by pressing F2. Both the graphics and sound card appear in the BIOS.

    Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    I right clicked it and the only options were, update driver, scan for hardware changes, and properties. I went to properties and there's nothing to remove in there. How do I go about removing them?

    It worked for the sound card. I have sound now :)

    But either I'm not downloading the correct video card (ati radeon 9000), or it's just not working for some reason, because my video card isn't working still.
