    My computer indicates that to show a screensaver I need a new video card or one that is compatible with Direct 3D. When I update my display to Mobile Intel (R) 965 Express Chipset Family on restart the screen splits in two and pixilates. I restart in safe mode and find that in the Device Manager it reports that the Display Adapter has two copies of Mobile Intel (R) 965 Express Chipset Family installed.

    The only way I can get back to a stable screen is to uninstall this driver which is then reported as missing by Windows.

    How can I install A display driver and video controller which gives me a stable display?

    Wait a moment. Do you use original Toshiba display driver for this notebook model?
    Maybe my English is not the best but what do you mean with “stabile display”?

    I just want to start discussion with one basic question:
    Can you use preinstalled Vista with original Toshiba display driver? Is everything on the display shown properly?

    Sorry mistyped meant to write 'stable display'.

    Windows update telld me to install Mobile Intel (R) 965 Express Chipset Family as a display driver, when I do this on restart my screen splits into 2 with what should be the left side on the right and vice versa. If i move the mouse the screen pixilates and it's impossible to work.

    When I uninstall Mobile Intel (R) 965 Express Chipset Family the Device Manager shows no Display but it does show 'Other devices' called 'Unknown device' and ''Video controller'. If i allow Windows to update drivers for these devices it simply puts Mobile Intel (R) 965 Express Chipset Family back into the Display and I'm back with the same problem.

    Thanks

    Please do not install Windows updates for drivers. Use Toshiba drivers only.
    All Toshiba drivers are tested and everything will be OK.

    Remove this driver and install Toshiba display driver. In windows updates remove check mark in front of all listed drivers. If you check it carefully such updates are defined as OPTIONAL.
    DO NOT INSTALL THEM!!!

    Thanks for the help, couldn't put it to use though because, I'm now having problems with my Vista Activation Code. I think i need to order a recovery disc as I don't have the original. Does the recovery disc reinstall the Windows operating system as well as the Toshiba drivers etc?

    Yes, it contains the Vista OS, Toshiba drivers and utilities…
    It will set your notebook to factory settings…
