    This driver is available on the Windows XP CD.

    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

    Hiya

    Have a look here and doublecheck yours:

    http://support.ati.com/identify/visual_inspection_graphics_chips.html

    Also, which of these three are you wanting?

    Display Drivers
    ATI DVD Player
    ATI Multimedia Center

    Apparently, the RAGE FURY, RAGE MAGNUM, XPERT 2000, XPERT 128, XPERT 99 and ALL-IN-WONDER 128 all use the same RAGE 128 Display Drivers and software.
