Hello, I have the 5.1.2001.0 in now windows xp installed it but it dont support opengl so my opengl features are not there so I downloaded the 6.13.3279 and when I went to install it a box comes up reading"the driver you are installing dont go with the video card I have" So I dont know what to do.
For the info on my video my computer is reading that I have:
Ati rage 128 GL so I went with the download for the rage 128.
But windows xp dont seem to want it.

Okay

I have been to the site and you have ALL-IN-WONDER® 128. The reason I say this, is that down near the bottom in the Feature Comparrison Chart this is in there

True color 2D/3D accelerator RAGE™ 128 GL RAGE™

So, from this, lets see if we can get the driver for you.

Here you go:

http://support.ati.com/products/pc/...s+XP&cboProducts=ALL+IN+WONDER128&cmdNext=GO!

This is a fully released and supported display driver for Windows XP. DirectX 8.1 and OpenGL support are included

Regards
