My sister has just got a pc from her work, a dell optiplex GX150 (Serial Tag 7xvm50j) but it had no operating system, i have just installed windows 98se on it, but the display driver is set to VGA mode and i am currently running it at 16 colors. Can someone please advise where i can download the correct driver for this pc, i have tried that dell website but cannot see it, i must be missing something. Please help

In the adapter section it is currently reading Standard PCI Graphics Adapter VGA

Where can i find the type of graphics card i'm using? Everywhere in System Info keeps saying standard PCI Graphics Adapter VGA. The graphics card just came with the unit, don't think it is anything special

I've tried several of them but windows keep's saying that the best driver is already installed on my pc???

Here are just the windows 98 drivers for the machine click here. Try the Intel 815 Series Integrated Video driver first.

It maybe that the computer is not using the on-board vga. It may have had a separate vga card installed.

Open the case and look at the graphics card ( if its onboard the monitor cable will be connecte to the motherboard) See if you can see any make/model or numbers on the card, if so post them here.
