I currently have a CRT Monitor for my Gateway 2000 Desktop running W98SE. I have been given a 17 inch Dell Monitor Model No 1703FPs (March 2004 vintage - works fine when I plug it into my laptop on external connection). What do I need to get this Dell monitor to run on the Gateway PC- do I need a dell driver? Simple instructions please. Thanks David
1. Could you please confirm the origin of driver, in your latest post, because the driver on the Dell web page (W98) is 119KB, whereas the one you uploaded is 66KB. I will try the Dell driver from your first link first.
2. How can I find out which monitor driver was used for the CRT (Vivitron 1776), incase I need to use it again if things go pear shaped? Thanks for ALL your help. David
Windows 98 will not accept a XP Driver. Thats a Fact. I know as I use it as my main OS though I have it Dual Booted with XP Home and have two other XP Home Computer 98se is what I do nearly all my work on. In fact I just updated the CPU for £5 from a Athlon 1600+ Palomino cpu to a Barton 2500 from a computer fair
