Hi rey910

Your Belarc results show two display adapters as follows:

S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR [Display adapter]
SiS 6205 [Display adapter]

The SiS is on board and the S3 is a card. Which one are you using? Your problem is that whichever adapter you are using needs the drivers installed. Right click on the desktop, choose properties and go to the Setting tab>Advanced>Adapter tab and it might tell you there.

Have you recently reprogrammed that computer? What is your Operating System?

This is my system--- Windows ME (Win9x 4.90.3000)

This is the one I am trying to use--SiS 6205

SiS has an automatic Product Indentification Tool you can use. It will identify your chipset and offer the best drivers. Go here and follow the instructions. You need to make a couple of little downloads but they are safe.

The SiS is the onboard (motherboard supplied) video and the S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR is a video card that is an add on to your computer. I would go with the S3. Its generally an upgrade to have an add on video card, but you also need the motherboard drivers. Before you do anything, go to Control Panel and look at System and under the Device Manager tab see if you have any yellow marks.

This is what I get when I try to install the driver--"ddis.dll" was not found


Where are you getting this driver from? Do you have a CD that came with your computer that pertains to the motherboard?

Try running Everest Home Edition. It provides a lot more information than Belarc and has links to drivers.

What I would do in this situation is physically remove the S3 card, install the mobo drivers, disable the onboard video in the bios and install the S3 card and the drivers.

Ok. You can get the driver you need here. On the first page, click Windows ME on the left, then when the right hand box becomes available click on Integrated Graphics. Then click on S3 ProSavage DDR integrated graphics and that will take you to your driver. Thats a zip file so you will need a program like winzip to extract it. Extract it to a folder on the C: drive. In the extract to box type C:\Video Driver and click Ok. Close any running programs and go to Start>Run>Browse and browse to C:\Video Driver and select Setup.exe.

After you install that driver you can burn it to a CD (the contents of the folder) for future use. If you need to reprogram ME you'll need it again.

Right on rey910. Glad I was able to help out and thanks for posting back.

I was wrong earlier when I said that the S3 Video was an add on card. It actually is your on board video supplied through the chipset on your motherboard.

As I said, if you can, save those drivers for your video and bookmark the SiS site for future reference. You can also download the SiS drivers and save them too. Best to burn them to a CD. If you do have to reinstall ME, you will then need to use those drivers to complete the install.

Maybe instead of glasses you should get some cool shades. :thumbsup: :flowers:
