I've just reinstalled windows 98 SE onto my boyfriends pc. But a few of the drivers are missing. It says the multimedia device and communication device drivers are missing. Plus the Video card needs updating. Is there any way of updating these? The AGP card looks like its generic or something. I tried to update it to 2000 but they also couldn't update the drivers. It has no internet connection. The pc has 128Mb, which operating system. Which OS will work properly with this? How do i find out what make the motherboard is? It has a vIA chipset on it?

It's so frustrating!!

If you know what motherboard from above link you can download from the Motherboard site

Regarding the graphics card the driver installed is one of the standard Win 98 ones it loads when it doesn't know which one to load. The multimedia device could be the sound card. If you have sound already then it and the communication device could be a modem if theres one fitted. Are you sure thats the actual name of the motherboard? Do you, as woodchip has suggested have any disks for it, namely something for the graphics card and one for the motherboard?

well, it could be via VT82C692BX? I have no sound. It's intergrated into the motherboard, thats why i thought the motherboard drivers would help. i've asked him to look for disks.

Right I'm finding loads of references to the drivers for the motherboard click here= all you have to do is go to one of the links, download the motherboard drivers and install them.
