The kid next door took pity on me with a 16meg card and fitted a GF2 200 to my P3 550 win98se
So now the blessed thing defaults to 600+800 desktop half the time.
With the resulting snarling visit to the control panel...
I resize it but next restart....
Any help greatly appreciated :)

No button or anything ;)
cheers

You may want to visit nvidia.com and update your drivers to the latest Detonator set.

That should fix the lot :-)

Might pay to read the page at www.nvidia.com as it will tell you the version to get for Win98 , which is not the latest release of detenator drivers.

????

whatever is posted at nvidias site will be the latest OFFICALLY RELEASED VERSION not a leaked or OEM version.

Yeah sorry, I was thinking about the VIA 4in1. Just had a tooth removed , probably those drugs they gave me. :)

Hmm! How much did cost to have the tooth removed?

Cheers Murray ;P

I kissed goodbye to $144. That included an x-ray to confirm tooth was stuffed. Mind you, lucky it was a rear tooth, as he was mumbling something about $800 for a root canal, so my choice to have it pulled. It turned out to be a wise choice as there was an abcess starting as well.

If you have a community card the hospital will do dental work very cheaply
