Hi everyone, Ill start by listing my specs:

Windows 98
pentium III proc.
500mhz
64mb ram

Ok heres my problem- I somehow installed a new display driver and now my computer thinks I have a ATI Rage/Rage II PCI (ati_m64) video card. I know I have an ATI card but Im not sure which one. My question is, is there any way to find out what video card I actually have? And, (this would be easier) how do I get my computer reading my real video card and my display settings set back to normal. Because as it is right now, everytime I try to change my display settings like more than 16 colors or more pixels my computer restarts for the settings to take place but when it does it either doesnt come back on or an error pops up directing me to fix my display settings but the ones I just changed dont take affect. PLEASE I need to get this fixed so I can get back to playing wonderful computer games that Im currently paying to play and get some use out of the cable internet I'm paying for which its main purpose is playing games. Please any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance

:p Hello Smacky,

Right click on an empty spot on your desktop then select properties/Settings/Advanced/Adapter. Your display adapter type and info. should be shown there. Once you know the specifics either remove the adapter in Device Manager, reboot and reinstall the correct drivers when prompted (if you have the driver disk) or download the latest drivers for the card and install them. Hope this helps. KW1
