mi33pea Posted June 14, 2009 Report Share Posted June 14, 2009 I have an alienware 51m 766 with FX Go 5700 video card and am using XP. Don't know the last useable driver as i only started noticing when things went wrong and i started trying other drivers. First noticed that i had a problem when the screen resolution changed overnight. i later noticed an exclamation mark in control panel's system devices and green vertical lines down the screen when booting up. From this website i have now various different drivers from this website (8471, 7650, 8421, 8425, 8210) with their respective modified infs - and i either get the blue screen of death, or "could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware". I have made sure that i properly clean out all the vga driver files before installing the next lot. So I'm now operating with just windows default drivers i guess - (exclamation mark still there in devices) - with limited range of screen resolutions to choose from - screen rippling, and the vertical lines. I have also just tried old 62.20 drivers downloaded from the alienware support site and i'm still getting an exclamation mark next to my graphics card in control panel's system devices. I'm coming to the conclusion that it's not the drivers that are the problem - or have i not tried enough different driver versions yet. I'd be so grateful for any advice. The worst thing about this is the screen rippling as i cursor down. many thanks in anticipation Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
