Video/Graphics driver for Compaq Armada 1700

  cyberphobic 06:43 30 Jan 2010

I bought an old working Compaq Armada 1700. I have upgeaded the memory to 160MB, installed a 20GB Hard Drive and loaded XP Pro/SP3. It all works fine apart from the graphics, only part of a web page is displayed and if I change the resolution not all of the desktop is displayed! I therefore need an XP video/graphics driver. I have been to the Compaq website and downloaded a "Rompaq" which has to be loaded on to a floppy, but when I run it, it says that there are no programmes to be updated. Can anyone provide me with a link to the correct driver for this model and operating sysyem please?

Many Thanks for your suggeation but unfortunately that link just takes me, by a more circuitous route, to the Compaq homepage and the Rompaq which dosen't get me anywhere!
