Ok here goes. I have a ATI Radeon video card. Windows reconizes the card, and automatically loads the driver for it. The problem with this is that I have an updated driver for the card, and it sits in an .exe file. Windows XP does not reconize an .exe file as a driver. The directions with the driver say to uninstall the windows driver, let the system reboot, and run the driver program. The problem with this is windows xp pro automatically puts the windows driver back in place!! On ati site it says to take out the register keys for the ATI driver, but windows xp pro adds them right back. The OS gives me no way to stop the problem. I have tried to stop the auto program many times with no success. Any suggestions, maybee a way to disable this? Or maybee I am going to have to go into the computer, and hunt down all the drivers it has for my card to erase them. I hope you all can help. Keep in mind I am very computer literate, but have just today loaded up windows xp for the first time.
