Released in October 2001, it is almost 15 years old today. I was only 11 years old when this OS was released so you can imagine I pretty much spent much of my teen years using XP machines other than Red Hat Linux of course. I can try that, but I’m betting that it isn’t as easy to change a config file to get the microsoft vm to work for the same reason you are mentioning…idiot proofing etc. I looked through a few pages of google searches and couldn’t find alot relating to it, but more may be available in the technet boards/blog etc. Then you have the problem that the mouse needs to be passed through to the VM before the XP VM will actually change drivers.
Manually upgrading is similar to the instructions above, but you should also know how to browse drivers on your machine. If your personal computer sports one of these cards, you must maintain up-to-date drivers for your Nvidia GeForce graphics card. New releases contain performance improvements for newly released games and solutions for problems caused by recent versions of Windows. Graphics drivers are the software that allows your Windows 11 computer to use the machine’s graphics card.
This will start downloading and installing the NVIDIA proprietary drivers. Open Windows Device Manager and click on “Display adapters”.
Not having the necessary GPU software for any PC unit can cause anything from crashes, to screen flickering, stuttering, frame drops, or even artifacts appearing on your monitor. In order to properly recognize and use any piece of hardware equipment, your operating system needs to have access to that component’s inherent drivers.
