HP Pavilion Crashed And Burned

  halfwit 17:47 15 Feb 2004

having had a catastrophic hard drive failure (whirring noise but nothing else) I have put in another hard drive which I formatted and installed 98se. All went ok but I cant get more than 16 colours from the onboard graphics.Unfortunately I havent got the makers restore disk and there is no mention of graphics in bios.Anyone got any ideas???? (hewlett pachard Pavilion 4405)

Download Aida 32 from click here which will list all the innards of your computer. Post the name of the graphics card and someone will direct you to a driver. You couldm also go to 'My computer'-right click-properties-devices see if there is a card listed-delete it and reboot.

Gandalf, Usefull programme (aida). Now I know that I have "SiS integrated video" What do I do now to get the drivers??

Have you tried the HP site support. I have downloaded drivers for just about everything else from there over the years.There is also a specialist Drivers site, sorry I dont have the links for either of the sites but go to click here and you should be able to find them.

Newuser, Tried hp site but no longer supported (we are playing with quite an old machine) Driverguide is compressed so I will try to download winzip or similar but doing it on two machines is "interesting" Back later,,,

and the graphics card is a SIS 5598-got ot driverguide-graphics card-manufacturer-SIS and they are listed there. I'll post the link to the download but you may have to log in first......click here
