Just building cheap office/internet unit. Used ASUS A7S8X-MX board and sempron2600. Loaded my spare copy of winME. Cannot get o/b graphics to work. Then found at end of manual it says board only works with 2000/nt/xp. Do I have to get xp or will a cheap graphics card do ok?

U should still get a basic display at least - take it you have enabled it in the bios ? (can u see the bios ?)

I have enabled in the bios and have 16 colours @640x480 and thats all

Look for graphic(vga)drivers for the SiS741GX chipset

A basic graphics card, if that will do for your needs, will cost you much less than a copy of Windows XP.

downloaded and installed latest drivers, no display at all. reformat, reinstall, back to 16 colours. 3 pages before end manual says "this motherboard supports win2000/2003 server/xp" . Reckon it will be a cheap graphics card, book says must be +1.5v. Mx400 I think.
