Need help with xp

  1. after failing to boot to xp I did a repair with the xp pro cd.

    Now I cant install my matrox 450, the matrox software cant find it.

    In display prop it lists a vgasave with no drivers and device manager does not show any display adapter at all. I reaseated the card and no help.

    I think xp is not finding it, maybe something is still bad in xp???

    My HD chkdsk ran ok. thanks

    in that case only 2 things left either the card is death or the matrox driver is not xp compliance, so you may have to find some second machine to test the card.
     
  5. I copied my win system and system32 onto this HD from another and now the card shows. thanks
