So are you saying that it is using a Windows default graphics driver?

What happens when you try to install the downloaded ones?

They install and then the computer wants to restart and then its back on again and the graphics have not changed same thing with the sound.I have windows default just now and all i have is 2 colours and 16 colours. For the last couple of hours i have been trying to install them and i also got out my last 2 graphics cards and tried them as well but got a new set of problems doing that which ment i could not get the computer to start back up.I had to unenstall the graphics driver in safe mode to get back on.Does this mean that my motherboard has a problem or would it be the graphics card.

I notice in the device manager i have yellow exclamation marks on

standard pci graphics adapter vga
pci ethernet controler
pci universal serial bus
Cmedia ac97 audio device

is there anything online i can get to fix these problems as i cant get them fixed with windows 98 or the driver cd that came with motherboard.

Would i be able to go on to the bigabyte website and download my motherboard drivers in case mine is corrupted as its not finding the drivers on my cd.My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA 7M400M if someone can point me in the direction of drivers it would be appreciated.

This links to the drivers that most closely resemble your mobo

it could be a motherboard failure though (hope not).

I downloaded the sound one first and got setup
is unable to find setup.dll which is needed to finish instalation error 103
