    This tweak is used prevent windows XP from using mirror Video driver when accesing some program.

    1.Some program or games like Ghost Recon, use alternate Video driver when it can't recognise the Primary Video card driver.

    2.Alternate driver lack AGP support and performance. So this tweak will prevent window XP from using this alternate driver whenever it was called for.

    3.Some bug may appear when using the primary Video driver

    Here's how to do it:
    -Run Regedit.
    -Go to. --> "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\Control\Video"
    -There will be 4 'display device GUID' key.
    -Expand all 4 key.
    -Open the 'subkey' labelled "000"
    -Change any 'DWORD' value labelled "MirrorDriver"
    from '1' to '0'.
    -Close regedit, restart.

    note backup before using this
