    The motherboard drivers are here:

    http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

    Follow this path:

    Select Products: Motherboard

    Select Series: SocketA(462)

    Select Models: A7V8X-MX


    Also it is highly recommended to install SP2 from Windows Update.

    Microsoft has ended support for SP1 and all new drivers and applications are geared to SP2.

    Did you download the driver version for XP?

    Again installing SP2 first would be the best bet.

    start > Windows Update

    That graphics driver would have been for on-board VGA.

    If you have an AGP graphics card you need to get the drivers from that manufacturer.

    If you have an AGP card it did not show up in your scan.
