    I recently formatted my hard drive and foolishly forgot to backup my drivers, now I have no idea what Display Adapter Driver to download. Here are my computer details:
    before it said 32 MB NVIDIA GEFORCE 2 MX
    then Graphics accelerator said something different too.
    I downloaded 56.72 from the website but I got this message when I tried to install

    The Install shield Engine (ikernel.exe) could not be launched

    The RPC server is unavailable.

    after downloading the above file (of course it was zipped so I had to DL winzip and a year later.....) It says that it cannot open it because it is not a valid Win32 application. WTF!

    This is really working on licking me.
