Video Controller (VGA - Compatable) Please Help!!!

  [DELETED] 15:54 23 May 2006

Can someone please give me some advice?

I have a new Philips Iqon computer, and the Iqon people have been absolutely useless. Within a couple of months the computer blinked off and they sent someone out to fit a new 'hard-drive' Since then,when I attempt to play DVD's on my computer, the screen is jumpy and flickers and sometimes stops completely.
I have looked at the Device Manager and by somthing called a Video Controller (VGA compatible)there is an exclamation mark in a yellow circle. Is this the cause of my problems and if so what can I do to remedy it?

I would be grateful for any advice.

Many thanks!

Thanks very much for your response, ot is very much appreciated.

I have, however, been left with a dilema. I am uncertain which Video Controller is mine. Any idea how to identify it?

Many thanks

Click on download drivers, then go to the computer you have, theres only 3 PCs listed so I presume you have one of them and download the VGA driver for your PC.

Thanks for that!!!

Being the thicko I am, I'm still a little confused.

I go on to the Iqon site press the Video Contoller required and it then sends me to another site click here.

I am not really sure what to do next.

With thanks.

Which computer do you have so I can try it myself and do you not have a driver disk with the PC?

Very many thanks.

Philips iQon Intel family PC Package The VGA driver appears to be SiS 651/661FX. Unfortunately a driver disk did not come with the PC, do you think this would be a problem?

I've just tried a few of them and they are all the same, very annoying, takes you to the gigabyte site with no info on what driver you need. Download this and see if it identifies the motherboard click here it'll be something like Gigabyte GA7VAXP or the like.

click here should be third one down under VGA driver. Don't download the first one as its for Windows XP 64 bit which is not what you will have.

Thankyou, it will take a year and a day to download; so I won't know for a while.

Your help is very much appreciated.
