    I have recently formatted my harddisk and reinstalled windows 98SE. I nolonger have the CD's or floppy disks that contain display drivers or grahic adapter drivers. I am trying to change my screen resolution from 16bit colour 640x480 to
    256 colour and 1024x768 resolution - I dodn't have the option to do this.

    My graphic files are very hazy. I assume that I have to re-install my video/graphics card drivers.

    Can anyone please tell me how I can find out what type of video/graphics card I have and if I can download the drivers I require off the internet.

    Many thanks for your assistance.

    <FONT face="Comic Sans MS" color=navy size=2>The best way I know of to find out what kind of cards your computer has is to open the case and look. Another way is to go to the web sight of your particular brand and model of computer. Many times the drivers you need are right there. And you can also put your brand and model directly into your search.</FONT></STRONG>
