Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

Video works only intermittently

\015 Dell Inspiron 1525. Replaced Vista, installed Windows XP. Video has never worked properly, even tho adding 2 new memory cards (which I did recently) were supposed to solve the problem. Can you help?\015

Answers :

If video was working fine on Vista and not working properly on XP then its a video driver issue.
Try reinstalling driver, this is right one:
