Video setup problem

By abailey101 ·
I have a computer that I am having video problems with. The error I keep getting is

Display:
The driver file that displays items correctly on your system isn't working....(It then goes on to tell me to reload the driver and / or search MS website)

I have tried to reinstall the video drivers for the original Nvida Riva TNT2 64 AGP video card to no avail. So i replaced the video card with a Diamond Stealth 2000 PCI video card. I still get the exact same error.

Any suggestions?

AMD 1800+ w256meg RAM running Windows ME

The TNT series of Nvidia chips can be tricky to setup.

Have you verified that the vidio related BIOS settings are correct per the card mfgs recommendations?

Do you have the latest chipset drivers for your motherboard installed?
Even for a PCIvideo card, the AGP mini-port driver is a MUST.

How about DirectX?
Many video drivers require DirectX to function properly.
You can download the latest version of DirectX from Microsoft.

Next, have you downloaded the latest driver from either Nvidia, or the card mfg?

Make sure ANY drivers that you install support Me.

I have often had to flash both the motherboard and video card BIOS in order to get things to work properly.

As to the Stealth 2000, I don't believe that Diamond ever offered a Me driver for the card.
So that may be part of the problem.

Probably better off going back to the original card as the other individual is right, the Diamond is Dead! If you are running ME especially as the cutoff for support I believe ended at the WIN98. The TNT has a specific driver set, and you need to be sure it is for the correct OS.

I ended up wipeing the hard drive and installing W2K
