I have a dell XPS 400, running Windows XP Home Edition SP3. My last hard drive failed, so i used the Win 7 Enterpreise edition 90 day trial before i got my replacment discs. I got them, and installed XP. Everything is updated (through Widnows Update) and my video card still isnt upgraded. I have no clue what card i have, but i do know it was the original one that came with the computer. I bought it brand new. I opened up the computer, and took the video card out. I read the id's on the bottom, and they gave me NOTHING. The auto detect will not run on my computer (I open it, and i see if for less then a second then it closes itself.) When i go into the driver manager page, i double click on Video Controller (VGA compable) (there is also just Video Controller, ive done this to both) i click "reinstall drivers", following the directions above the button because i am running off of the MS default drivers. Ive googled MANY hours, and have found no way to figure out what card i have. Ive downloaded "Video card detecters" and nothing shows me anything. PLEASE HELP! I NEED ASAP!!!!

Here are the numbers from the bottom:

ATi Radeon X850 XT is what I got when I googled the specs of rig and it landed me on CNet.  Dell should have all the drivers available for download at their support site as well.

Cheers!

Error. "Driver not found" and "Try running with standard VGA drivers before running the installer again" or something like that.
