I have a Compaq 5000 with Windows ME and an Intel video card.
I recently found driver upgrades in Windows Update for both the Video card and the Allegro sound card. I went through the process and when I rebooted the video never came on. The Video does come on in SAFE mode. However, in that mode it the Intel video is listed as disabled in safe mode. I thought about trying to reload Windows ME but the DVD rom is also disabled in safe mode. I thought about "removing" the Intel video card in the System setting but wasn't sure if that does anything. I disabled the Allegro driver but that didn't help. Obviously, there is probably alot I've screwed up by now<g>, so this little bit of info doesn't quite give a complete accounting but any sort of advice would be helpful. Also, this is my daughter's computer. There isn't anything irreplaceable on it so i could go from scratch. It would just be a bit of a pain and I'm not even sure how to do that either<g>

Thanks, Richie

Brian,
Thanks for the suggestion. I downloaded the drivers and got things working again. Guess I won't jump at the chance to update my drivers unless things aren't working.
