    Hi guys, I'm having some trouble with a graphics driver so if any of you guys have some suggestions it would be great.

    Basically I formatted a mates windows 98 and installed win2k. When I check device manager it tells me I'm missing a graphics driver but I've been trying for the best part of today to find that driver with no luck.

    There is no name on the case of this pc and it's old enough as windows 98 was installed on it but I use a software called "Everest" to find out details about my pc's......so here's the run down on this.

    Motherboard name: Soyo 5EMA+1.0
    Chipset: VIA VT82C598 Apollo MVP3
    Display:Rendition Verite 1000 (Creative 3d Blaster)

    I've tried updating the chipset and graphics with no luck so as I said, any suggestions would be greatfully appreiciated.

    Thanks

    I'm assuming you have some access to torrent sites?

    If so, then download 'DriverMagic' the full version, it'll scan the PC & install the correct graphics driver. I had to use it for that exact purpose myself. Be warned though, it doesnt ALWAYS get exactly the right driver, just 90% of the time, so I'd only use it when you've no other way of finding the correct driver (like this situation!).

    Hope this helps.
