Hi everyone! I just put a new hard drive in my old dell 4100 dimension desk top computer. I am only receiving 16 bit color and the NVIDIA GeForce2 MX Video Card is not being recognized. I have been all over the net looking for the driver starting with the obvious DELL and NVIDIA with no luck. Does anyone have any ideas of where I might find this driver? Thanks in advance for your assistance!

:) Thank you but that is not the driver it is only an update that applies to the driver. I've already been to DELL & NVIDIA websites.

....did you try actually downloading and running one of those? did it tell you it was just an update? video drivers rarely come out as update only packages...they tend to package the full driver with updates

:) :) Thank you for replying! Yes I downloaded it and tried running it in the computer. I don't remember now what the message was but something to the effect that there was nothing to install because the application didn't apply to.... Also I went back to the website and clicked on the link for NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX. On that page it clearly states this is an update for... If I am wrong then there is a deeper problem with the video card than I thought!
