I am trying to update my onboard video driver. right now the settings are in 16 bit colour and the screen area is in 640 by 480. i would like to change the driver to the latest version. the problem is, whenever i update it from the device manage or in the display panel it gives me the same standard driver. i tried looking on the web but im not sure if it's the right version.

Does anyone know where can i get the driver updates in the AMD web site or any web site.

My system specs:

MOBO: GA-7ZMMH Socket A Processor
RAM: 128MB
OS: 98 SE

Thanks in advance

Hi 2255,

Welcome to the forum.

You can't normally get such drivers from AMD - your best option is initially the Gigabyte web site (under support):

Hello,

Install the VIA 4-in-1 drivers first. Restart. Your onboard video card should now be properly recognized by device manager. Now install the VGA drivers.

Good luck.

I'd recommend what Hawke said anyway - use the latest VIA 4-IN-1 drivers as they address issues with previous versions and may give a noticeable increase in performance.

I had a problem running a DVD-writer on my machine until I installed these drivers.
