Howdy:

So which driver are you looking for..

The video driver for Win98SE is THIS ONE according to your specs and that page..

It will have to be unzipped first..

That would be dependant on the Southbridge chipset and your specs don't mention that at all..

You know.. you could learn to help yourself and go to the site and get your own drivers !! Maybe, just maybe, if you learned to do it yourself, you would be that much further ahead..

I tried before I even asked dude. I couldn't get those drivers to work either. I've since wiped my c: and reloaded windows 98SE. Now when I try to open the drivers it asks me what program I want to use to open it. I dont think I have the right program to unzip the file. Can you help me?
