 Post subject: Alienware M7700 Laptop Video Card Driver?
New postPosted: Sat Mar 24, 2012 4:34 am 

Just used the restore disks to install Windows XP. When it was done installing all the drivers it never installed the Video driver. GPU didnt show up in the BIOS either. I updated the BIOS. It now shows in the BIOS. Shows VGA Card: Quadro FX 2500M (512MB). So I figured I would be able to install the Driver now that is recognizes it. Nope didnt work. Not sure what the deal is. What could be the problem?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!Image
