    I JUST DOWNLOADED AN UPDATE FOR MY VIDEO CARD DRIVER.
    I DOWNLOADED IT TO MY HARD DRIVE [C]BUT THE UPDATE
    DOESN'T SHOW UP ON MY SYSTEMS/DEVICE MANAGER.
    DOES WINDOWS 98SE AUTOMATICALLY PICK UP THIS DRIVER OR
    SHOULD I HAVE SAVED IT IN A DIFFERENT PLACE ?

    Welcome SteelGuy!

    It's a bit easier to read posts if you'll drop to lower case.

    And no, by simply downloading a driver update, it doesn't automatically pick up and install....it needs a little help from you.

    When you download drivers, usually, it's a zip file, or an .exe file.

    When you downloaded it, where did you tell the computer to save it? If you can't remember, download it again, and this time choose to save it to the desktop....makes it easier to find.

    If it has a .zip at the end, you'll need a program called winzip to unzip it....if it is just and .exe at the end, double click it on your desktop, and the installation program should take over.

    BTW, if it is a .zip file, double click that too, if you don't have winzip, you'll find out real soon. You can download it from here if the file doesn't automatically open up in winzip:
