The moderator of the Windows Secrets Forum suggested that the Hardware Forum was the best place for me to get some advice/help determining whether I have an older version of the Intel or AMD graphics drivers that are incompatible with MS Patch KB2393802, the February kernel patch that causes the BSOD problem with certain grapics cards.
In an April 15th post to the "April showers ..." Windows Secrets thread, Susan Bradley provided the links for obtaining updated Intel and AMD drivers to resolve the issue, but I'm one step behind that.
I know I have an older graphics driver, but not whether I have one of the incompatible drivers. I'm not even sure what questions to ask or what to look for. How do I determine if I have one of the graphics drivers that will require replacement? Is there a way to check on my computer?
The list of what came with my original Dell Dimension 8300 with Windows XP Professional and Office 2003 in 2004, shows a 128MB DDR NVidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics card and an Intel Pro 100M Integrated PCI NIC Card. My video card was replaced in 2007, and the packing slip identifies the new card as a CRD GRPHC 128MB NV34 DIM.
Any guidance about how to deal with this issue will be greatly appreciated. By the way, I do know that its time to upgrade my computer. Thanks.
