    How can I choose default display drivers? (Home - oem w/laptop)

    Hi,
    I need to downgrade my display driver, but the standard windows vga drivers dont seem to appear in the "choose from list" dialogue box.
    Even when i uncheck "show compatible drivers" .
    Is there any where i can go to download it so that i can use the "have disk option"?

    The standard VGA drivers should already be there, but you will have to uninstall your current drivers from Device Manager, then install the VGA drivers picking from the list now showing the generic type or another one from "have disk". . Reboot.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Why are you needing to downgrade?

    cos the machine kept crashing and the microsoft error report said update your driver
    then the updated driver said "instal a standard vga driver before updating"
    I used a 3rd party driver and that worked fine. Thanks though if i need to install the original i now know how to do the VGA one.
