Where did you get that address? You should only need to choose the file and download. Don't use any download helpers or "accelerators". Try a different browser.

Computer Specifications
Windows Xp Pro
Ibm NetVista 8303 Computer
1.0 GB Ram


The Lenovo site has Windows XP drivers for ATI and Intel and NVIDIA graphics for that computer.

Which one came in your computer?

What's currently listed in the Device Manager in the Display Adapters heading?

Are there any entries in the Device Manager with a yellow ? next to them?

I checked many links and they don't seem to be working. So i found this program:

http://www.driverupdate.net/

Check it out, it may help you.

EDIT: Oh! It's for money! Is it? Wait, i will check that out.

EDIT: Yes it's completely for money. I will try to look more.

Hi!

The card is infact from AMD/ATI.

Drivers -

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...gacy-98me.aspx
You need to download the "Display Driver Bundle" from the very first link for "Rage 128/Rage 128 PRO"
Though it says here that support+drivers have been discontinued for ATI Rage cards as they are End-of-Marketing; it does have a list of drivers from its repository.

Try them out...

Those drivers are for Windows 98/98SE/ME and are not for Windows XP.

These drivers are for Windows XP:
