I am reloading a Compaq 8510p laptop running XP pro with an ATIMobility Radeon HD 2600 video chip. System event log keeps showing ATI2MTAG produced error I2c return failed at boot. I have reinstalled the driver and checked for viruses. Any thoughts?

Yes my windows is up to date and I did install sp51066, however, I find it odd that the information on the file at the HP site states this is version 8.65.09081... dated 18 Nov 2010, but when I check the driver that was installed in device manager, I read version 8.650.00 dated 8/13/2009.

Even though Intel 915 is available at the same link, CPUID says the video chip is ATI Mobility Radeon 2600 code name RV630 on a HP motherboard with Intel chipset PM965 and Southbridge 82801HBM(ICH8-M) running an Intel Mobile Core2 Duo T8300 cpu. It's probably a BIG mistake to design a computer with Intel and AMD parts on it; neither will admit their errors.
