Anybody can give me a link to a hanns-g driver for Windows XP ? i searched on Google and i couldn`t find anything .. i don't say that in the hanns-g official site i found only the Vista compatible driver. If anybody can find me the driver for that or a compatible driver ... thx

Do you need a driver? Control Panel -> Display -> Settings -> Advanced -> Adapter -> List All Modes -> pick the resolution, True Colour (32 bit), 60Hz -> OK -> Apply and see if it works; it'll revert after 15 seconds so if it doesn't work, don't panic, just wait.

I have a similar problem. My CD came with vista drivers. On load up I get a blank black screen. The computer will only fire up in safe mode.
Tried you suggestion above xpi0t0s no joy.
Any other possibilities

Thanks.
Chipset AMD 750 consisting of
AMD 751 PCI/AGP controller (PAC)
AMD 756 PCI ISA IDE Controller

I must admit it is an old motherboard. I built it some 8 or 9 years ago. Just wanted to upgrade from Win98 and use it for my Ipod IT tunes machine.

I have changed from win98 to Xp pro.
I have not as yet been able to get a full bootup of XP as the very last and first bootup of xp proper fails with a black screen.
And with a safe bootup I cannot do very much.

Although the install of xp did go right through, but have not put in the xp product key

Hi Neo

Tried the AMD binary file update. Had to copy it from my other PC and moved it to the troublesome one with a flash drive.
As the PC will only fire up in SAFE mode when I attempted to install the AMD file all I got was NO AMD components were found. Should I have tried to load the file in another directory
