What is a vga driver

iGet message that vga driver hotkey is missing. How do I replace it?

A "vga driver" is a basic video driver.  He has almost never used nowadays (except in Safe Mode) because most of the monitors (and so most video cards) are capable of much better than the 640 x 480 resolution, which was the State of the art in 1987.

A "keyboard shortcut" in this context means a key you press which causes the display to do something.  Sometimes a "shortcut" is a unique key and sometimes it's a combination of keys.  For example, with my card video, if I press CTRL + ALT + Basel, my screen turns upside down.

What is the full message, you get (please do not paraphrase) and when do you get it?
Having a video strange behavior?
What version of Windows is installed, including the service pack (click right my computer and select Properties, if you do not know)
What is the brand and model of your computer?

  • Standard VGA driver does not load when reinstalling Windows XP

    Reinstalled Windows XP on my computer, but he doesn't not load the driver VGA Standard - so I can't install the video driver ATI Radeon x 600 for my graphics card.

    In Device Manager, it shows (in yellow) in the other devices section, "Video controller (VGA Compatible)".  I tried to update / install video driver with the Windows XP installation CD in the disc drive, but whenever he says, can not update material.  Whenever I start, the Found / installing the new hardware box arrives, but after a search, he finds no driver to install the video card.

    Of which I did some research on the web, I need to load the Standard VGA driver before adding any other drivers (IE, ATI Radeon x 600 video driver) - but Windows XP does not say the driver VGA Standard of its installation disk.  Help!

    I have not yet tried reinstalling Windows XP again, FYI.

    Hi people,

    You could try to remove the "video controller" in the section other devices in Device Manager, then restart the computer.

    Who needs to be reinstalled card generic video driver.

    However, if you have the correct video card driver, you should be able to reinstall this driver from Device Manager.

    Right click on "Video controller" entry and go to the "updated driver software".

  • Satellite A660 - wen of video streaming VGA driver crash

    Satellite A660 - my computer hangs and the VGA driver crashes and then recovers when I watch Youtube or any other streaming site. I think that there is a problem with VGA drivers. I have Windows 7 64 bit. Rarely, windows get completely frozen and must be started cold.

    Friends of ideas?


    Yes, sometimes I read on these issues here in the forum, but the solution is simply: update the display driver!

    You can download the latest drivers for your laptop from Toshiba's official website:
    http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com > support & downloads > download drivers

    But before installing the latest version I recommend to remove the old first and restart your laptop. Then you install the most recent.

    I hope it works :)

  • What size of HARD drive is compatible with my Satellite A100-771

    Hey guys,.

    is there a size limit of HDD for my A100-771?
    And what type of HARD drive I need? IDE or SATA?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi dude

    From my experience, the Satellite A100 series was equipped with SATA drives.

    There should be a SATA HDD controller and you can use SATA 2.5 hard drives.

    I think that there isn t disc HARD size limit since the SATA controller is not limited to all special HARD drive sizes

    I think that most SATA HDD must be compatible


  • Z40-70 windows 7 (32 bit) Intel VGA driver support downloads page does not work

    Hi people,

    just got a 59436180 Z40 - 70 w / nvidia geforce and installed with windows 7 (32 bit).

    installing the nvidia vga drivers told me I need to install intel vga driver before installing the nvidia, one card...

    the problem is that I can't install the driver vga intel that I got the support of the lenovo download page (the name of the file is 'ivg200w732.exe'),

    When I run it, it says something like my computer doesn't have the minimum requirements for the driver to install...

    Well it seems that it is the wrong driver, because when I explore the installation directory, I found a 'x 64' - named directory... and not "x 86" or "32 bit" or something similar... "."

    someone has the same problem?


    had the driver from the site of intel... resolved.

    I am a woman of the Grotto with computers, but am not stupid, just know that little.
    Thanks in anticipation...


    Whist, that I suspect that Richard is correct, you do not have the readers of network (based on your own description of yourself), it does not necessarily follow that a standalone PC does not or can not have any network grows. There is nothing to say that someone could not create a network drive on their own standalone PC, for example in a deep subfolder of 'My Documents'. Maybe it's to facilitate navigation in this subfolder without having to navigate through the folder structure. Real examples...

    You could have a folder structure in My Documents as follows...

    My Folder\Yet of Folder\Another of Documents\A one

    You can create a network directly drive to "Yet another folder", which could be given to the letter Z (like the disks/partitions on the PC itself gives a letter, so are all network drives). If you open my computer and then open the drive Z you get directly on the content of "Another folder" without having to navigate through all the intermediate folders.

    Normally this would be folders that reside on other PCs in a network of PC, but it is not obliged to be like this.

    In the simplest XP environment, you will have a C drive and almost certainly a D drive. Drive C will be your primary bootable drive that contains Windows, installed programs and data. Drive D will be your optical drive. A and B are usually reserved for floppy drives and not used if the PC has no floppy drive. If you have created a network drive on your PC or any other PC, the drive letter is given to can be a letter E through Z.

    If for example you have two optical drives, they would probably be D and e. leaving F thanks to free Z for future added features or network drives. If you have a card reader, this will also give a drive letter (format the card multi readers will receive more than a driver letter). The external drives and USB keys also will give a drive letter (or letters) as well as housing of readers of card/USB on attached printers.

    Open my computer and look at the listed drive letters. If you have network drives, they have been handed a letter and probably described as 'the PC' where PC is the name/description of the computer where the data resides, which can also be your PC.

    Like Richard, my bet is that you will have none.

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards


    [text removed for privacy]

    Thank you Paul.

    Thank you very much.

    The VGA driver from the link you provided does not work for my model. I tried to install more recent drivers without success, but then I came across the answer in a forum where it says that for many model series CQ45, version 10 or 11 of the ATI catalyst driver does not work so I installed driver 9.12 and it worked.

    For all those who are struggling with CQ45 205AU drivers for XP can contact me on [email protected].

    Thank you once again.

  • Standard VGA driver cannot start (code 10) _

    My graphics were a little bit lately and I noticed that a driver does not want to turn on. I uninstalled and reinstalled but still does not work.

    Device type: display adapters

    This device cannot start. (Code 10)

    Click on 'Search for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.


    The system starts in SafeMode ok? If so, then the problem is not with a standard VGA driver, but rather those used by your video card in normal mode.

    At a command prompt, run sfc/scannow. To open a command prompt, click Start and type CMD. Right click on the menu entry that appears and choose "Run as Administrator".
