You can try double clicking on the inf file - that should 'install' it.

However, if you have horizontal lines all the way across the monitor, and they're the same color all the way along, then it generally means the LCD or driver chip has suffered damage. Occasionally, it also happens because of a poor connection between the cable assembly and the LCD itself, but that's pretty rare.
Once in a while I wish you were dumb-not very often do I wish this but now is one of those times. Please tell me this makes a difference.
The desktob is full of the lines and consistant. Soft ware instalation and the lines vary. on boot there are times when there are no lines at all. the screen is clear.
I've gotten Xp to instal a instsall a generic drive but there has been no change in the picture.
