    Windows Vista drivers not being installed properly

    My system runs in Windows Vista Home Premium. I had to repair the graphic card and it wiped clean for security reasons. When I tried to install VHP disc, it says drivers are missing. Why does this happen?

    Re: Windows Vista drivers not being installed properly

    Hi,

    The driver that runs Graphics Card is wiped off from the system as you have told.

    After the repair, installed Graphics Crad does`nt have Driver software and you need to supply that from outside.

    You have two options, either useing Windows Driver software or the Graphics Card Manufacturers supplied Driver Software.

    In any case install fresh driver by entering either Control Panel , or insert the CD containing the Driver to the optical driver and install.

    Thanks.

      , type Device Manager in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
