I am looking for the following graphics card drivers for my card "Matrox Graphics MGA-G200 AGP". I tried googling for it but I keep getting directed to matrox web site but it is not there. Can someone who deals with drivers often, tell me or help me in finding the correct driver. The driver is for windows 2000 pro PC.

thanks

OK, let's start troubleshooting. What does Windows say about
it in Device Manager?
I assume you have AGP enabled in BIOS and any onboard video disabled?

Matrox Graphics MGA-G200 AGP Is for a Maxtor AGP graphics card, not onboard. Do you have both? What is the make and model of the computer?

OnBoard != AGP ... two very different creatures.
Try Belarc Advisor and see if it identifies the card.
http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

Here is a link to manually see the card as the system sees it.

Scroll down a bit to the section "Graphics Cards"

Post back with the info.

Unfortunately Belarc is lying. This may be due to an old driver still
on the system.
Try the manual instructions as it reads the video BIOS and not the drivers or registry.

I have a few more ideas, but let's start with that for now.

Ok your typing faster then me. Try Everest, it should correctly identify the card.

Looks like around a zillion choices. What brand of computer are you
running?
What does Everest say about the "chipset"?
Does Everest identify your motherboard?
