I have reinstalled Win98 on my PC following some system problems but now I am unable to resize the desktop. The system will only allow me to have 640X480 pixels and a colour palette of 16 colours going through Display Properties/Settings. I have a feeling that I need to reinstall the graphic card drivers but unfortunately I have no disk. What I need to know is how do I find out what graphics card I have installed? I have tried going into system properties, running msconfig and various other options but all I seem to find is that it is a PCI graphics adapter and the driver is a microsoft generic one. I have even taken out the card to try to find a makers name but drew a blank. Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanks.
