    My pc can't detect HDMI graphics driver


      Hi all,


      Yesterday, I have  installed 2 programs to boast my monitor and after uninstalling them and reboot, my pc falls back to 640*480 and display panel indicates that "the currently selected graphics dispaly dirver can not be used. It was written for a previous version of Windows and is no longer compatible with this version of Windows. The system has been started using the default VGA driver. Please contact yr hardware manufacture to get an upgraded driver."


      However, under advanced adapter tab, it still shows Intel®Graphics Media Accelerator although the tab for IntelGMA is missing. The driver indicated is of a older version of what I have found at my motherboard website support. Should I uninstall the current  Intel®Graphics Media Accelerator driver under the driver portion and install the new Intel®Graphics Media Accelerator Driver Setup exe downloaded? In addition, I also found that there is this IntelR Processor Graphics under add/remove new programs, do I have to remove this as well before installing the new driver?


      By the way, I am using on board graphics card.

      Motherboard is Gigabyte H55M-UD2H

      Intel Core i5 650 3.2 Ghz dual core

      System is Window XP SP3.

      Many thanks in advance.

          Sometimes computer manufacturers require that you uninstall the current driver first but, sometimes you can just run the driver updates and the update itself will remove the previous version.  I recommend getting in contact with Gigabyte so; they can give you the correct procedure to update that driver.

            I have successfully installed the driver and now the graphics is back to normal though my monitor is still flickering with double image on and off even with the updated monitor driver and such. Maybe its a monitor or on board graphics problem? Anyway, thanks for your advice.
