Video card for win nt 4.0 workstation

By steves ·
Does anyone know of a video card that will work with the drivers that are on win nt 4.0
I need 800X600 and 65,000 colors. I don't want to have to install the driver for the video card. I want NT to find the card.The video card i am useing is a Jaton P87-AGP 3D.
My customers sometimes has to reinstall NT and they can not get the video driver back on the pc. The video drivers that are on win nt 4.0 are drivers that were put on the cd back in 1996 when NT came out. I also can only use service pack 3 (not 4,5 or 6 ).
Can you help me........... Thanks

If you can find one, just use an old 2MB S3 video card.

Several will work with default NT drivers. You can always go to the video card properties and then start to go through the change process and see the list of these cards. Most generic trident cards will work and be found fairly easy by NT.

Like was said in earlier responses, anything older by S3 or Trident should do great. My suggestion would be S3 Trio64 cards. They are usually of the 2MB variety and do a decent job at 800x600 and 16bit (65k color) video. THose are the ones I would usually put into servers when I built them for any operating system was needed by the customer since the chipset was solid, everyone had drivers, and those drivers were usually pretty stable. Then again, other's mileage may vary )
