Easily Fixed

First go to and put in your Service Tag number.

You will be able to download the drivers.

Go to Start menu>Control Panel>System.
- Within System, click on the "Hardware" tab, followed by "Device Manager."

Highlight Display Adapters, Right Click and choose Scan for Hardware Changes. When it asks for drivers, use the ones you downloaded from Dell.

Note that you should read the instructions with the driver file from Dell. It may do all of those work for you automatically.

If this article helped you, please mark it as helpful so that one people will be able to find and use it. Thanks!

Not detecting the graphics card?

by seanferd In reply to mmm

Are there unknown, disabled, or problem devices in Device Manager? (They have special icons: question mark, crossed circle, and exclamation point). If so, one may be your graphics device. Double-click it and see if you can install/update the driver.

Here is how to set it up with your drivers C

ATI RAGE Mobility 128 is what is listed for your system spec, but you can get very specific here if you need to:

A good place to start for any other info:

ATI doesn't seem to offer any info here

I'd start with that first link on reinstalling from the Dell drivers disk. Otherwise, download a driver by following the links on the Dell support pages for your system running Win98 9the links I've given are specific to your system).

Question: How did you come to delete the device from device manager? Something should be showing in there right now, like a generic video driver.
