    For some unknown reason I decided to install the latest VIA 4-in-1 drivers on my previously stable 8KHA+ KT266a mobo with Winxp and everything went to crap. My video is now very jittery and the screen shakes vilolently. It apparently corrupted or uninstalled my video drivers (latest from nvidia) and I cannot get it back to its previous state. I have tried uninstalling the VIA drivers, ran a System Restore, but nothing has changed. It will not let me reinstall the Detonator drivers or even default ones from the Winxp CD... just comes with an error stating that "The parameter is incorrect." Also, at boot Windows File Protection kicks in and wants to replace the files the 4-in-1's destroyed... but it will not recognize my CD in any drive.

    help :(

    well if you've tried system restore and that didn't help you might want to consider formatting your system and reinstalling Windows :hs:
