Inherited an old gaming PC from a family member, backed up drivers using a utlilty, put the computer back to factory settings (as it was slow and full of software I didn't want) and applied all updates and then restored drivers. The graphics card gives a Code 10 error in Device Manager (failed to start). I have uninstalled the card and reinstalled it, loaded optimum BIOS settings, downloaded and used the autodetect program from the site and even used a Beta version of the Catalyst installer but it doesn't seem to want to work. It's greyed out in CPU-Z and when I roll back the driver or reinstall it it says the driver dated 2010 is current and the best software for the job. The Operating System is Windows XP SP3 (I know, I know ) but it worked prior to my reloading. I just wonder what I've done to it to stop it working. The motherboard is an abit as8-v, BIOS and chipset is a little dated and I'm having trouble finding updates but I didn't touch these before. So assuming these aren't the issue. Any help and advice before I pull the card and chuck it? Thanks in advance.

The problem might be in the backup/restore function. Reset the computer again and use proper driver installers made available by the hardware manufacturers. Driver utilities are not the best idea.
