    Notebook video driver question

    Hey guys,

    I've got a Compaq Presario machine that's about 4 years old. It came installed with WinXP but I had to wipe the hard drive. I put Win 2000 on it for space saving reasons but the webite for teh computer only has video drivers available for XP.

    Any thoughts on how I can update the video driver for Win2000? Anyone know of a compatable driver for another product that might work?

    Specifically it's a Compaq Presario 702US

    Eh, try and use the XP driver, it's not that different. Who knows, it may just work. I would try that first before wasting a lot of time on it.

    I'd say try the XP driver. I had a sound card once that only had drivers available for XP, and I used them with Win98. Getting the drivers actually installed took some work, but once they were there the sound card worked alright.
