Hi, Just want to ask why is my graphics driver appears in the device manager with an exclamation mark on it. This happened right after I ran system restore. I'm using Windows XP.

What does the exclamation mark indicate and what must I do to remove the exclamation mark on it?

Yellow exclamation point showed up because somehow Windows detected some conflict with your video controller.

That punctuation mark indicates the status of your video controller,  there might be some driver problems. You can simply view the status of your driver in Device Manager, to find out the error code, by that you can simply determine how to properly resolve your issue by knowing the generated code, such as code 39 and so on.

If you don’t want to view the status of your driver, you can simply delete your video controller in the  device manager, then restart your computer and install it again.
