Windows XP Drivers
By: Live Tech Care
If there is a problem with one of Windows XP Driver, here are few steps which can help in resolving this.

The driver might be the ultimate cause of instability in computer. However, the procedure of troubleshooting a driver begins with checking the hardware for compatibility. Hardware running Windows XP must be compatible with that operating system. Specialized software is used to check the hardware in a computer for compatibility with hardware. Such software as Driver Verifier will check that the driver is corrupted or not (a corrupt driver could crash a computer). The user will open Verifier.exe, and then reboot the computer's operating system. No other action is required to begin the analysis procedure.

Running operating system in normal mode
Find out, update, rollback or uninstall is only possible if the Device Manager is running (rather than opening the Display Properties). Click on the Start Menu button to use "Settings." when "Settings" is open, click on the Control Panel. To check the hardware, double-click on "System" and then click on "Hardware." Click "Device Manager." In order to view other display adapters, click on the plus sign. This is to locate a video adapter. Double-click on the video-adapter driver to launch tabs. To troubleshoot the driver, click "Troubleshoot" on the common tab.

Device manager
If the video-adapter driver is causing the operating system failure, the driver can be removed from the Device Manager. After locating the driver in the Device Manager window, double-click on the driver to launch the options for that driver (Driver tab). On the driver tab, choose the "Uninstall" option. However, if the driver is simply out-of-date, select "Update Driver" from the similar driver tab. And also roll back a driver to a earlier version by selecting "Roll Back Driver."

Safe Mode
Running operating system in Safe Mode will prevent the execution of the video-adapter driver during troubleshooting (The Vga Save continues to function in Safe Mode, allowing for the Windows XP system to show the current screen while troubleshooting the driver). The disadvantage of troubleshooting in Safe Mode is that the screen resolution might become distorted (extra-large icons and windows might be difficult to fit on the screen depending on the video-adapter type). Click on the Start Menu button to enter the Control Panel. In the Control Panel window, double-click "Display" to open the Display Properties dialog box. From this dialog box, click on the Settings tab. And Select "Advanced." On the Adapter tab, click on "Properties,” and then click on the driver tab.
