Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

Specs: Windows, 128

yesterday i updated my PC to Windows XP Home edition.

When i go to device manager, there's a Yellow question mark next to "other devices" and under it it says "Video Controller VGA Compatible". none of my disks seem to have this driver. I dont know what it is or how to update it.

What can i do?

Also, now that i have installed XP Home ed, when i go on the internet, and scroll down, the page flickers, rather than scrolling down fast and sharp. what could be wrong? thank you!

Find the video card model with a program like AIDA32, Belarc Advisor etc.that gives details on all hardware present on the computer.Look for the drivers program from a source like DriverGuide.Delete the lines with the exclamation marks in the System Properties,setup the drivers program and reboot the computer.Set the resolution to the level you prefer.If the drivers are not available(some older PCI based video cards drivers were not updated to XP technology)you will have to revert back to the previous operating systerm to get the right resolution.Good luck.

Have you run Windows Updates and are you on SP2 version of XP? The service packs added allot of missed drivers to XP database.

Umm, im on windows xp home edition..not SP2.

i think i found some random graphics disk thats managed to get rid of the yellow ? by the VGA controller, but Internet Explorer is still flickering when i scroll up or down.

I thought it had something to do with memory, so i bought double the memory, but its still happening. any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

I got the same problem, but I sorta did it my-self trying to update my nvidia graphics card and im running on a sp2 labtop with the graphics card built in, it all started when I deleted my nvidia display thingy like the site said to.
