Hi Young Ranger. Standard PCI graphics adapter (VGA) is your problem. That is the default driver that Windows puts there until it gets the proper one. For future reference, before formatting and reinstalling Windows I always like to run Belarc Advisor click here and print a copy. Then I have a print out of all the hardware and software, because otherwise I always forget something such as what the graphics card or modem is. Your best chance now is to open the case, take the graphics card out and see what is written on it. If you're lucky there will be a label telling you exactly what the card is. If there isn't then see if you can find the main graphics chip, probably the biggest one, and report back here what is written on it.
I do use Belarc but couldn't run it before foramtting because of the problems with the PC which could not run anything without crashing. I have downloaded the Everest programme and run it. This tells me that it is SiS 86C326.
I did a quick google but I haven't found anything that looks suitable. Any sugestions?
Tried SiS Corporation 86c326 driver - SiS Corporation Sound Card Drivers - Win98.txt but I think it is a sound card driver. The graphics are on board and the mother board is PCChips m570 manufactured by Elitegroup computers. Again I have done a search but still cannot find anything that appears to be suitable.
