I tried the basic driver disk but im still getting unknown devices in my device menu. When i try to install it just says that i should try to install a VGA driver first but i dont have any more to install or know where to look. I have already checked their site but to no avail.
My system is currently
2 120gb hard drives (IDE)
biostar tf7050-m2 motherboard
2 gigs OCZ DDR2 800 memory
amd athlon 64 x2 3800 processor
antec 400 watt smart power power supply.

The base graphics work fine for now but i want to give it more juice. Is there any way to get this running on windows 2000 pro???

I updated to their most recent but still no luck. Those display drivers are currently the only ones im using i believe. Though now that i think about it i might have installed the most recent NVIDIA display drivers... im at work right now ill check when i get home.

you might have to uninstall the video card/drivers thru control panel/add/remove programs and/or device manager, reboot and reload/update the motherboard chipset driver(not the vga), then reboot again and load your graphics card driver

if you still have unknown devices post a screnshot of device manager showing details

Im not entirely sure let me post some quotes from the box though.
Under system requirements:
Microsoft Windows XP SP2, XP 64, 2000 SP4, MCE, 2003 32/64, Vista, Windows Aero

On the back:
LATEST TECHNOLOGIES
Takes advantage of the revolutionary new avivo video and display technology platform to enable High-Definition visual experiance and enhance digital video, gaming, and photos.

AVIVO

Sharp video and photos, smooth video playback

I dont know if that helps or not

vivo means video in video out

does device manager see you video out part? under display adapters?

If it does then you probably have to load the video in(capture part) drivers
