    So, I recently reformatted my desktop computer. However, now I don't have the drivers I need. I have an Insignia model D400A and I got my video driver from: http://www.insignia-products.com/t-drivers.aspx

    The video driver matches up directly with the brand and model of my computer, but every time I attempt to install it, I notice that nothing really changes (the screen lags excessively when dragging and changing the size of windows) and when I attempt to open Control Panel, I get an error. I've reformatted since then, and have reinstalled all other needed drivers minus the video one. Can anyone explain why this particular driver is not working properly and how to fix this problem?

    If you have the original driver for your graphics card it should work.
    What error are you getting.
    Also try to enable Hardware Acceleration from Display Properties> Settings> Advanced> Troubleshoot> make it to full & check mark enable conbining
    Also with few driver they don't change really after installation you have to manually do it.
    check what setting are used in Display properties> settings tab> color quality should be 32bit(higher)

    According to the Insignia link:

    http://www.insignia-products.com/t-drivers.aspx

    your computer has Intel 82845 graphics.

    This is the current chipset driver for it:

    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...57&DwnldID=8178&strOSs=45&OSFullName=Windows* XP Home Edition&lang=eng

    Version: 6.3.0.1007

    This is the current display driver for it:

    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/fil...XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go!

    Version: 6.1.4.10.4342

    Install the chipset driver first, reboot, install the display driver second, reboot again.
