    Ok so I downloaded the Detonator 22.50 drivers because I hear they work best with Dark Age of Camelot. I unzipped them into a directory, uninstalled the old drivers, but when I reboot Windows XP just automatically reinstalls my card with the same drivers (GE Force 2 MX400 card). I read other posts and they say to manually install it as a standard VGA before updating drivers, how do I do this? Please help thanks!
     
  2. just update the driver to standart vga .... then after you already changed to standart vga .. you have to update it again to the new driver.<br>

    You don't have to uninstall the old drivers with XP. Just click "adapter" "properties" and "update driver" and manually tell it where the new driver is located. I'm assuming you already right-clicked the desktop and chose settings and the advanced tab. <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif">

    This does NOT work. I specify the directory and windows says there are no drivers located there.

    Are you sure you totally extracted them! and you specified the right folder?<br>
    <br>
    you have to choose the manually update drivers - have disk - and then choose the right directory then it should work. mayby you should redownload the driver.<br>

    Follow theese steps:<br>
    - Click Update Driver button<br>
    - Choose "Install from a specific Location (Advanced)"<br>
    - then "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install"<br>
    - Click "Have Disk" and browse to your driver directory.<br>
    <br>
    That's all...<br>

    Hi, could it be that he is using the self extracting drivers?<br>
    Because I have the same problem myself. Aparently windows doesn't detect them. In order to update I have to use drivers that come in zip format, unzip them to a folder, and THEN windows recognize them.<br>
    <br>
    If someone have a sulution for this, I'll be very interested to know because the way I do it is a real pain...<br>
    thank you<br>

    Its best when installing new drivers that you uninstall the old ones so there are no conflicts. True, the new ones will overwrite the old ones, but there are some old files left over, so its best to uninstall first. I recommend you download the Detonator Destroyer. If you do, then u should follow these steps when installing new drivers:<br>
    <br>
    1. Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall your drivers from there. When it asks you to restart, click "No".<br>
    2. Run Detonator Destroyer and click "Uninstall". Then click "Restart"<br>
    3. When your computer restarts and asks you to install new driver, click through the screens until you see the "Have disk" button. Click that, browse to the folder with your new drivers, install your new drivers, and restart again. Then you're done!
