I have had to fit a new hard drive into my PC which has a Voodoo 3 2000 intergrated graphics.

My new hard drive has Windows ME on it but for some reason this wont recognise my Voodoo 3, it installs a standard VGA graphics adapter ???
As a result I can only get 16 colors

Now before you say "its a driver missing" its not I have installed these so its not that.

There are no problems with my graphics itself as I have put a different hard drive with XP on it and it recognises it straight away. It seems to be that Windows ME is not picking up / recognising my intergrated graphics ??

I'm stumped !!! can anyone help.

What's your motherboard and what drivers do you try to install ?

edit :
Under Win9x/Mill. when you install the OS, you start in 'Standard Display Adapter VGA' which only gives you 16 colors and 640x480 resolution.
You need to install a driver then to reboot (Windows will prompt you to do this).
If that doesn't work, an "inf." is probably missing.


In-ter-ac-tive :
