i have noticed that in my add and remove files
i have my nvidia 175.19 driver
intel(R)82845 chipset driver

do I need them both or can i remove the intel (r) one
if i do what will happen

Just a wild guess here. Removing the Nvidia driver could mean your graphics won't function effectively (very slow). Removing the chipset driver could result in everything being slow or things not working e.g. USB.

One could be for Onboard Graphics other may be a AGP card that as been fitted

If you look at the back of the Computer system box, if you see two VGA sockets including the Monitor one then you have both

hi woodchip
I only have one
looks like i should leave it alone
thought i was getting a conflict but looks like not

plobalbe out come looks like i may need a better graphics card for what i want it for
excuse the langauge but bugger

If you only have one is the Monitor connected to Socket where all other plugs are at the back or into a removable strip on its own?

If its where the other plugs are its most likely the Intel you should keep but if into a strip most likely be the nvidia

Run SIW; click here What's the motherboard, what's the graphics card? When do you get the message - on the desktop, playing a game?
