FWIW, Lenovo pulled the video drivers for the A30. Only the ReadMe file is available. I found the latest video drivers at a third-party site and tested the package for viruses. Tested clean and it does install the latest version of video drivers. They appear to function correctly on my XP SP3 system.

You're mistaken. You posted assuming that because there is an entry in the list that the actual driver download must be there. Like I stated previously, the only thing there is the ReadMe text file. No drivers.
