I REALLY need someone who knows ALOT about video cards to write me a driver for an NVIDIA TNT. You see, I'm running on XP Pro, and the card only recognizes '95-2000... and my screen is dark and i can't see stuff.

Thanks in advance,

When I plug this into Google

+driver +download +XP "NVIDIA TNT"

I get lots of sites for XP drivers for that card, including this one

http://drivers.soft3...ro-66232-5.html

and you can go to the Nvidia site and browse to make sure you get the exact one for your card. You may have an older installation disk. Many mfrs. sites have new and updated software for even quite old hardware.

Did you look at the card to get the exact part number and search for the drivers on the Nvidia site?

Well, this may be one of those rare occasions where you just can't get the driver anymore. Maybe if you tell us the exact part number someone will have an idea.

It is unlikely that anyone is going to make a windows xp driver for a gfx card from the dark ages, maybe you should put windows 2000 on the computer. It wouldnt be hard to replace it with something more up to date a 20-40 pounds will get you a pci fx 5200. And even in america it wont be expensive.

But it was the days before lovely TFTs and large flat screen CRTs were indeed dark.
If it works for them just leave it, you cant really moan about someone elses computer if they are letting you use it.
