    Default New video drivers driving me mad

    Problem:

    Everything graphical, from half life 2 to scrolling up real fast on internet explorer causes lag and looks awful.

    Trigger:

    I attempted to install new graphics drivers.

    System:

    I am running windows 2003 server, my graphics card is an ATI radeon 9550/1050X series. Computer is an INtel 4 CPU 2.4 GHZ 2.39 GHz, 512 MB of RAM.

    Other:
    On the advice of friends, I went into my computer properties and found the device manager. The ATI radeon 9550/1050X listed under "Display adapters" with the little yellow exclamation mark of errors. Upon displaying its properties, the message was "This device cannot start. Code 10"

    Also malfuncutioning was something in the Other catagory labelled "PCI simple communications control." It's excuse was "The drivers for this device are not installed" but windows updater failed to find any drivers.

    I would go with the rollback driver option.

    In the device manager right click the graphics card and select 'properties'. In the properties window go to the drivers tab. There should be a roll back driver button. Try that.

    Your other option is to see if there is a driver available through windows update.
