Windows 98se, S3 TRIO 3D. Ihave somehow lost the ability to change my colour. When I do change it and restart my pc, nothing has changed. I am afraid I deleted a file and when I start my pc i get a message saying that it is looking for a file to start norton, it is a system. ini file. When I look in the Windows ini I see that it is all corrupt, so I decided to reinstall Windows 98se. That is when this trouble began. Most things still seem to work ok. I can get online and use all my progs. (I think, I have not tried them all). This is driving me mad. Any help would be appreciated.
Windows using best driver it can find in its own operating system. You need drivers that came with Graphics card/ motherboard if on board graphics. Better yet download the lastest drivers from the manufacturer's web site
I tried to diagnose it with DirectX, I even downloaded the new version of it. I got the message 'no direct draw support, code ox887600de. I do not know what graphics software I have. How do I find out?
andyloran, bear with me on the directions I going to give you, I'm running XP. Goto to Control panel, goto Display settings, when in the new window, goto the Settings Tab, click the Advanced Button. Then I get another window come up and I have to click the Adapter Tab, then Properties button. In there, I can see what software/drivers is installed for my G/Card. Another way, Control panel, System, look for Device Manager, when there, you can look for the Display drivers/software version in there. You may have a Yellow ? or ! in there. Have you tried the CLICK HERE I gave you?? You can download the up to date drivers from there.
I have dowloaded an updated driver but when I try to change to it it tells me that I am already using the best driver. This is driving me crazy. I have tried the DIRECTX troubleshooting and it tells me there is no directdraw support. No Direct3D. The driver is S3TRIO3D. I will go back and see if there is another driver on that site you gave me. Thanks for your trouble
