I recently upgraded to Win 2000, and there are only 16 bit graphics on my computer. I wanted to look for a new driver for Win 2000, and these are the serial numbers that I found on my card:
STB Systems Inc
1xo-0645-305
210 031 00x

I would really like to fix this, but I can not find anything with this serial number for STB. Please give me any suggestions for this. Thanks. I was running Win 98 and everything worked fine until now. And unfortunatley I do not have a disk for the drive anymore. Maybe I just need to use Win 98 again? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I am running a Gateway 2000, with a Pentium II.

You need to look on the card itself. There will be chipset number somewhere on it. If you post the chipset numbers, someone might be able to locate a driver for it.

Also, you can try using a tool that is provided as "trial ware" by www.driversguide.com. Here is the link....

http://www.driverguidetoolkit.com/

The program will identify your chips for you and is even supposed to search the driversguide.com website for drivers too. I have used it to identify unknown chipsets a lot, it works pretty well. I have never used it to find the drivers though.

Like I said the only numbers that are on it, are the two listed in the above post. I already went to that website, and they list by name, not by exact serial numbers. And sorry, I am doing this for my father. I just gave him this computer, and it worked fine until he upgraded to 2000. Sorry.

Get the utility in the link I provided, it will ID the chipset.

The numbers are physically located on a CHIP, not on the back of the card. Look at the chips and you will find the numbers. They might be covered up by a sticker and you might have to remove the sticker to see them.

The utility is the best way to ID them.

If the card is original Gateway hardware then you can go to their website and possibly download the driver there or at least get more info.

hopefully you can find drivers that work, your disk probably didnt even have win2000 on it, maybe NT4, if you can't find drivers you may have to buy a cheapy card that will have win2000 on it.
