Hi can anyone please help.. the thing is i had a virus on my computer and had windows 200 previously, i then lost the win 2000 disk so i installed win 98 but my graphics are very poor. its like 16 colours, how can i change it to 256 colours? someone told me i need to get a driver for my graphic card, all i know its a SOYO one and its built onto the motherboard.. any suggestions on what to do?

Have you tried updating the drivers using the web interface hillen1?

Otherwise, register here, there will probably be something there http://members.driverguide.com/ums/index.php?action=r

Alternatively, get yourself a version of XP, loads around. :)
the thing is i have a pentium II so its quite old and i had win 2000 and that was fine for me, is it possible to download a version on 2000?

any suggestions?

kind regards

I'm sure you will be able to find a version somewhere, try searching with google.

i've tried everything i cant find it and its making it harder as i only have 16 colours so the graphics are very poor to search for things.. i've registered with driverguide but i dont know my model number or anything about my motherboard hence me not being able to download correct file... is there any way of finding out,, all i know is that its a soyo ..

cant find a free win 2000 version anywhere also..

im quite new to using a pc so its sort of difficult..

Just go and but a cheap graphics card from the local computer shop. 20 or 30 quid will sort all your problems.

im a student and broke.. my graphic card works perfectly before i reinstalled win 98.. all i need is a driver. i know i could get one from the shops but if i can get something thats available to download it doesnt take a scientist to work out which option is more viable..

Sorry, Sandra doesn't support Win98 any longer, I should have checked that. You could just take your card out and look for the maker and model :)

If it's a built in one then you will need the motherboard drivers and not the one I found above.
