    Hello,

    I recently had to do a full reset on my computer, but after getting through most everything, I found that the gaming program I use the XP for could not find any display adapters, and this was something that the system's settings was noting as well.

    This photo is what I am seeing when I open the game, when it should look something like this on a computer I have it working on (bare in mind that is NOT the same adapter, it is a much newer system)

    On my display properties setting, the adapter is completely blank and I do not know what I previously ran on it. It was a type of Intel Viiv as the front of my computer shows but I don't know what it actually was and if I need to install a driver to get this running again.

    (EDIT: I checked for Display Adapters in my Device Manager and none were there...)

    A few specs (can provide more if needed):
    Dell XPS 400
    BIOS Version: A04
    Intel Pentium D CPU 2.8GHz

    Anyone know what this adapter might be or have any suggestions to get it running?

    --- EDIT FIXED ---

    Alright, I got it going. There was a RADEON driver on Dell's website which was not what I was expecting to download, but it made the game run exactly as I needed it to when I did. Help no longer needed!

    did you download and install all of the needed drivers for your pc? and did you know that there is a certain order to install drivers?
