    I am using a very old computer ,it is only for a temporary time.It is aprox 10 or more years old.Its graphics card isnt even a card ,system device calls it an adapter.It is a SiS 5598/6326,When I had win98se,you could change the
    screen resolution,but now that I have xp it wont budge,it stays at,
    640 by 480 pixels,HIGH 24 bit.There are no drivers for xp for this old graphics adapter.Im I doomed until I get a new computer?Oh yes the moniter is very small too so the large resolution makes it a pain in the computer world hehe.

    I don't even see how you got XP to run on a 10 year old computer, and I say run lightly - it's probably more like a crawl! But, to answer the question I'm gonna say You're Doomed!!!!!!!!! Until you get the new computer..........

    I'd remove the card and test the on-board.
