Driver nightmares

  vandango 14:00 21 Jan 2006

Can someone please point me in the right direction i have been trying to find a driver for a couple of days and struggling!

Its for a video card which has writing on it saying Innovision TNT2 M64-Vanta W\16MB

On a separate pc i have just reinstalled windows xp pro and have no sound, there is no seperate soundcard in the computer it is built into the motherboard again to be pointed in the right direction would be fantastic!

don't forget to uninstall your old drivers before you install the new ones.

vandango agree with the others about the graphics cards but the PC with no sound. You need to install all the motherboard drivers not just the sound ones, windows XP loads generic drivers for the parts of the PC that it can but they are not the proper drivers for the motherboard, you have to install them as well. If you don't it may crash or may not run to its full potential.

thanks very much for that, back to the windows 98 machine with the tnt card. i have tried to install the driver but an error comes up saying that there are no nvidia components in the machine!

very frustrating!
