Vista Standard VGA Graphics Adaptor Not Working RRS feed

  • Question

  • My VGA Adaptor isn't working and has a yellow exclamation mark. The version number is 6.0.6001.18000.
    I presume it is corrupt so how do I go about repairing it?
    I see there are several repair tools on the internet, most are Regcure which already have and that hasn't picked up the problem.
    How do I overcome this problem?

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

     

    Regarding this issue, the display driver may be corrupted. Generally, to troubleshoot this kind of issue, it is not recommended to use Regcure. In my opinion, I would like to propose the following suggestions.

     

    1. Roll back your driver to see if it works.

     

    1)   Click the Start Button, type Device Manager in the Search bar and press "Enter". Click Continue if necessary.

    2)   Double click to expand the "Device Category name".

    3)   Right click the "Device Name" and click "Properties".

    4)   Click the "Driver" tab and click "Roll Back Driver".

     

    If the issue persists, you need to uninstall the display driver and reinstall the latest Windows Vista compatible driver.

     

    2. Uninstall the driver and perform a reinstallation.

     

    Uninstall the driver

    ===================

     

    1)   Press WIN + R, and type: devmgmt.msc.

    2)   Click the item "Display adapters" and right click on VGA driver.

    3)   Click Properties, and click driver.

    4)   Click Uninstall, and make sure to check Delete driver option

    5)   Restart the computer.

     

    To reinstall the latest driver, you can update the driver through Windows Update or manually download it from manufacturer's site.

     

    Update the driver

    =================

     

    1)   Click the Start Button, type Device Manager in the search bar and press Enter. Click Continue if necessary.

    2)   Expand the "Device Category name" category.

    3)   Right click "Device Name" we are using and click Update Driver Software…

    4)   Select the “Search automatically for updated driver software” option.

    5)   Let the system scan for the updated driver online.

     

    By the way, if the issue isn’t resolved, please help collect System Information and post in this thread.

     

    1)   Press Start, type in msinfo32 in the Start Search bar and then press Enter.

    2)   Choose Save from the File menu and save it as an NFO file.

    3)   Find the file, right-click on this file, click "Send To", and click "Compressed (zipped) Folder".

    4)   Upload the file to SkyDrive ( www.skydrive.live.com )

     

    Hope this helps. Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Item 1. Could not roll back driver as "Roll Back Driver" is greyed out.

    Item 2. Unistalled driver but there was no option to delete Driver option.

    So where do I go to now, as I don't think downloading and re-installing driver would work.

    Would the driver in the Vista Installatikon CD be corrupted and if so how would it have happened?
