Packard bell are a nightmare to get the right driver, I've got one that even the "correct" driver hits the blue screen about every 20 minutes but only when your using the internet.

Can you get the PCI Ven and Dev numbers from device manager? Or if you change the bios to display all the garbage on boot you might get the VGA Bios name or whatever which may help.

Alternative is to throw a graphics card in.

It should come up with the vendor/device number in the device manager-properties-details tab.

I had a Packard bell years ago and it had a voodoo graphics card (used to be the card to have!) when it needed a format the real voodoo driver didn't work. Turned out it wasn't a real voodoo, they had just licensed it. Saw my arse!

Never touch Packard bell again. Or any other to think about it. Best bet is to buy a graphics and a sound card, can be gotten for about 5 quid each and will ease the load on the already poor quality motherboard.

Sorry for doom and gloom!!
