    I have an HP Vectra VEI7 with NT 4.0 SP6. I was having resoultion/color problems so I downloaded a video driver from HP. The integrated chip is a SIS620. I installed the driver and rebooted. The driver is listed as installed, but the only resolution available is 600x480 with 16 colors. Any suggestions?

    I figured out the solution. After looking at the display driver details for the 5,000th time, I noticed that one of the files associated with the SIS620 driver was awvideo.dll. I thought this strange since the driver file had a dll called sis620v.dll. I removed awvideo.dll from its location at //winnt/system32 and reinstalled the SIS620 driver. This time it attached the sis620 dll. I rebooted and it works perfectly. Thanks to anyone looking to help.
