The keyboard that came with the thing is probably an analogue of the Compaq one you describe (for analogue read cheaper rip-off perhaps) - it has all these flash bits to I cannot reformat to 2000 as the cd wasn't part of the deal... Google does not endorse, and expressly disclaims liability for any product, manufacturer, distributor, service or service provider mentioned or any opinion expressed in answers or comments.

Thanks again :) Wolvies Request for Answer Clarification by wolvies-ga on 20 Apr 2004 12:26 PDT Lol, SP21180 worked for the audio so don't worry about that Thanks again again ! If you run into any problems using this driver, please let me know and I will help you troubleshoot the problems. There is no video card per se, not in a PCI slot, so I assume it is part of the motherboard. livioflores-ga Important Disclaimer: Answers and comments provided on Google Answers are general information, and are not intended to substitute for informed professional medical, psychiatric, psychological, tax, legal, investment, accounting, or other
This worked EXCEPT that the default monitor driver chosen by 98SE doesn't seem to connect to the inbuilt video card ?

I strongly urge you to download these as well, and save them to a secure place in case you need them again in the future. wolvies Clarification of Question by wolvies-ga on 20 Apr 2004 01:17 PDT Used a program called Belarc Advisor to try to find more information about the 'new' PC. While there are alternate online repositories where drivers may be found, it is always best to source it straight from the manufacturer when available. Does that mean that Windows 98se is not appropriate for it ?
Was the Deskpro built only for Windows 2000 ?

But 98SE is not recognising it - I have only 16 colours !!! Is there no way of getting 98SE to recognise the video card ? Please read carefully the Google Answers Terms of Service. Thank you.
Windows 98SE, by default, will only recognize a small set of video chips during initial installation, so invariably when you install Windows 98SE onto an older machine, you need to locate http://www.driverscape.com/manufacturers/compaq/laptops-desktops/deskpro/4633 I went there and put Intel i752 into the searchbox and got the list below, but am not sure what it means ! livioflores-ga Clarification of Question by wolvies-ga on 20 Apr 2004 06:07 PDT Thanks - I downloaded and installed Everest onto it. It did come with a floppy though so I'm going to see if the driver is on there...

Now you know the secret, to find drivers you need to know the answer of the question "Drivers for what?", Everest (formerly Aida32) gives you the answer to this key question. There's no information on or in the case as to what I need to find a driver for (everything just says Made in China...). Try to install and run Everest Home Edition, this free software will tell you what hardware have you installed in your PC: http://www.lavalys.com/index.php?page=product&view=1&subpage=5 Post this info and we will try to have a peek here Not all of this makes sense to me but may be useful for analysis !
