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

Rather than list a bunch of cards, the best thing I could do for you would be to point you to the Windows Hardware Compatibility List. All you need to do is Select Windows NT 4, followed by Display adapter and choose from anything with 2Mb or more.

All the best!

There are a lot of cards that you can actually use such as diamond stealth, s3, ati pro turbo e.t.c. You might also suggest to them to go to windrivers.com and download any drivers needed and also you might want to do a random check on the pc that are running right now and find out what the display cards are, then download them and put it in a shared folder on the network if that is available. Hope this helps you.

Why are you so stubborn?You want NT to do something that it can not do. Why not create an Emergency Disk for each installation. It will keep your settings. Download the driver for your VC. And use service pack 4 or 5 they are cumulative and enhance the performance of the system. Besides NT 4.0 SP3 is not Y2K compliant.
