Try re-downloading it. If possible, see if there is another site that has it posted and download it from there. Could be a corrupt file, or a corrupt download.

Make sure that you have the correct file.
The file name is Win2K-XP_23.11.exe
It should be 6.604 K-Bytes in size.

If it is correct, and you have the entire file, there is some other conflict causing the problem.

Have you installed the compatability updates from Microsoft? If not, that could be the problem.
Same for updated chipset drivers for your motherboard.

You might try disabling everything running in the background during installation. Something could be interfering with the install. The only two things that you absolutely must have running are Explorer and Systray.. All other programs can be disabled.


Ctrl+Alt+Delete will list all programs running. To disable them, select the program and click "End Task". Once you have stopped all the programs except Explorer and Systray try reinstalling the driver again.

Good Luck!

Gotta agree with the previous tips. The thing I'd like to add is to try and install the driver while in Safe Mode. Also I'd try removing the previous display adapter and going back to a "standard vga" or svga adapter, then install the new driver.
