W98 to W98SE - chipset driver - Intel 82371

By pmfturner ·
I am formatting the C Drive on a friend's PC, which is currently running W98, and am going to instal W98SE. Presumably, I will lose the chipset drivers (and others ?) on reformatting, and concerned that my monitor won't display correctly. The chip is an "Intel 82371AB/EB PII" with a "Diamond Viper V550 for Windows 98". From where can I download the appropriate drivers ?

Actually, the default W98 drivers do a decent job with Intel chip-sets such as the 440 series you have.

To install the latest drivers, here is the Intel page:

http://support.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/cs-009195.htm

For the Viper, go to
http://www.diamondmm.com/

Unfortunately, you need to sign up for email in order to access the drivers.

Alternately, you could try the reference drivers for the Graphics processor on the card.

Install drivers in this order:

Chip-set driver.

DirectX (from Microsoft)
(Read the readme or installation instructions for the driver. DO NOT install a newer version of DirectX than is supported by the driver!)

Graphics driver.

Monitor driver.

Unless the graphics driver supports DirectX 9, I personally recommend against installing IE6.
I have seen far too many system problems when using older graphics drivers with IE6.
