Specs: Windows XP
Hi,
We had got a monitor from my brother in law. Since we changed the monitor we have been getting the "ialmrnt5 display driver has stopped working" error. I have downloaded all the updates from Windows and some drivers (i.e. R79733, R106458) but keep getting the errors. I dont know much about what i am downloading so I now turn to someone over the web to help me....Can anyone help?
Thanks
Elena

Your problem has nothing to do with you changing the monitor.

"ialmrnt5 display driver "

ialmrnt5 is an Intel driver for onboard video - video built into the mboard.
You only need the Intel graphics drivers if you are using the onboard video.

( If you're not using the onboard video - you're using video on a card in a mboard slot instead - Intel recommends you un-install the Intel graphics drivers for the onboard video, if they've been installed - in Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs. )

When you're on the web on the subject-of-this-Topic computer, go here:
http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/suppor...

Click on Automatically Detect Drivers and Software.

Download (DO NOT install it at that point) the newest INF Update Utility (main chipset drivers) for your chipset - the one NOT intended for developers.

Download (DO NOT install them at that point) the newest graphics drivers for your chipset - the ones NOT intended for developers.


Go to Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs.
Un-install the Intel graphics drivers for the onboard video, if they were installed previously .
Re-Start the computer, if it didn't do that automatically.

DO NOT install any drivers yourself for the onboard video while booting the computer, when Windows detects the video while booting !!! CANCEL that, continue on to the desktop screen.

Install the INF Update Utility you downloaded.
Re-Start the computer, if it didn't do that automatically.

DO NOT install any drivers yourself for the onboard video while booting the computer, when Windows detects the video while booting !!! CANCEL that, continue on to the desktop screen.

Go to Device Manager.
E.g. RIGHT click on My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager.
Click on the Display adapters heading to open it up.
If the display adapter(s) listed is(are) anything other than a default VGA something or other, RIGHT click on it, select Un-install.
DO NOT Re-Start the computer at that point if you did that !!

Install the Intel graphics drivers by using the installation file you downloaded.

If you get the same or similar errors after that....

Check your hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics.

If you don't have a floppy drive, you can get a CD image diagnostic utility from most hard drive manufacturer's web sites, but obviously you would need to make a burned CD, preferably a CD-R for best compatibilty, on another computer if you need to.

If the hard drive itself tests okay, any data problems found can be fixed, one way or another.
