Video controller (VGA Compatible) is not installed

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I reformatted my laptop from a windows 7 Operating System and installed an Windows XP Operating System. I installed all the drivers from before and everything was fine except for one thing. I see an error in one of my devices saying:

"Video Controller (VGA Compatible)" is not installed”

I can’t seem to find the driver for it. I’m using a Compaq Evo N500b Laptop.
