Dual Boot PC - problems with Video / monitor

  netdiscs.net 19:45 11 Aug 2008


I've recently had some work done on my PC to partition the drive and have a dual boot (XP and Vista) startup option.

In windows XP I am having problems with the graphics card and monitor being recognised. Within the device manager no monitor is showing and video controller is showing under other devices. It seems to work ok in Vista Ultimate on the other partition.

It's an NVIDIA Geoforce 6200 card and a ViewSonic VP191s monitor.

I've tried both the signed and unsigned device drivers for the monitor and nothing has changed. I tried installing the Geoforce driver and it changed the display settings to the (seemingly) lowest possible.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

have you installed the motherboard drivers on the XP partition?
