Problems: ASUS M2N-VM DH MoBo

Someone may be able to help me wit this one.
I have a ASUS M2N-VM DH board with AMD AM2 CPU and onboard Video NVida Geforce 6150 Chip. I have loaded the drivers several times and downloaded new drivers for it as well. Disenabled the chip and so forth. Still when we go into Windows Media centre it gives a error " the correct drivers for your video device are not loaded" or something simular. It has only started doing this a week ago. Any one have any idea's on this.

My way of thinking now is to put a PCi Video card in and go that way, but it would be good to keep my spare Video card and just get the onboard on back working. Also the board has 3.0 gig of ram on it, so that should not be a problem.

Which Media Centre is this? If it's Windows Media Centre XP, then did you download the right drivers for your motherboard? If it's Vista, then see if the generic drivers are fine with it...

So you have two video cards installed? The onboard and a plug in one? If so then media centre is probably trying to use the wrong card for the drivers it thinks it needs to access.

If what aliali said is right, then you need uninstall the drivers and clean it completely via DriverCleaner in Safe Mode (which you can Google). After that, reboot then let Windows recognise that you have several new hardware to install. Then let it install.

Thanks for the reply,

Only have the onboard Video card installed. Still yet to put a PCI Express card in. Have spent many hours trying to get the onboard card working. Have done the clean out and reboot thing, this works great untill the next reboot, when the system tells me again that the onboard Video chip has not started. Go through the whole unload and reload drivers again and it's right untill the next Boot. Never had this happen before. And it's only as I said started a few weeks ago. I'm at the point now of doing a total clean out and reload of the OS.
Throughts?

Okay. Did you set the motherboard to detect the video via the onboard? That could help get rid some of the headaches as some motherboards need to be picky about this issue.

When you said that the constant notification that it hasn't found the drivers keeps happening, did you make sure that the drivers were properly installed or the right ones for it?

Ok that's odd indeed. All I can think of is WMC insists on having MS signed drivers, so I would uninstall the ones from Nvidia or Asus and the run a custom windows update and see if there are drivers available through that.

Thanks for the replies,

The windows control panel tells me the drives are installed and I have checked they are the WMC XP drivers, Everything goes good untill I do a reboot, then the system is back to wher I started from??!.

I think I will leave it for now, and next week end Install my PCI Express Video card and Do a clean Total OS install, It's a bit of a pain but it seems to me to be the only way it's all going to work correctly.

Following up from previous,
Have done a clean install of Windows Media Centre 2005 and loaded the PCiE Video card, all seems to be working correctly now.
Thanks for all your time in helping me
