in xp graphic card problem the balloon flashes,found new hardware,about 10 times,and in device manager there are loads of yellow question marks.indicating found new hardware all to do with graphic multiple loading.which indicates everytime balloon flashes it is finding same i uninstall all and manually install driver,shut down and all is fine.but it has now done this two nights on graphic card breaking down intermittently?.or is it something else more sinister..on occasions i have had multiple bleeps on pressing turn on button,but if i imediatly press reset all is fine,again this is intermitant,have reseated card..

it sounds like you may have to load the graphics manually!

Have you onborad graphics? Is onboard disabled?

sorry should have said i have geo 4 card installed the on board graphics disabled. same set up for over a year no probs.somehow is intermitently losing driver,have the latest one.havent downloaded nothing affect it.i can understand somehow losing driver and reinstalling should then be fine,but why does windows try to load and load same card,normally the balloon pops up says new hardware founf ok but doesnt flash,for every flash it puts another yellow tick.have reloaded drivers shut down restarted all is fine now,as i say is intermitent.

What drivers are you using?

If XP finds a device (your graphics card) using drivers that have not been 'digitally signed' by Microsoft, but has a set of digitally signed drivers available, it will sometimes decide to revert to the digitally signed driver.

It is possible that you are getting into this loop. Go to the site, download the latest signed drivers, and install them - pay close attention to the installation instructions.
