Hi,
I have just done a clean install of win98 on a compaq P3-800mhz Deskpro En.
I have no driver software and am stuck in 16 colors and 640x480 res. The AGP slot has a small 4mb card which I assume is the onboard video card or additional memory for the onboard video card. On it there is a sticker that says:

-------------------------------------------
MT2LSDT132AGP-6E2 AIMM-133-333
US BZAB4XT003 200115
4MB, SYNCH, AIMM
-------------------------------------------

I am lost trying to find a correct driver, there must be a generic compaq driver for onboard video??. I just want to have the resolution at 800x600 in high color and I didnt want to buy a new video card just to get drivers. I already looked through the Compaq website with no luck. Any help is much appreciated!! :thumbsup:

The drivers should be on the Motherboard cd for internal ,read the Manual on this.
I hope you have all this included with your purchase.
Where did you get this PC ?
Did you not get a AGP card CD ?

:thumbsup:
1 more point,where did you connect your monitor as it seems you have 2 choices.
The AGP slot is not the onboard video.

Hi,

This was bought off ebay and had no software at all for anything. I already knew that, I just didn't think I'd have trouble finding a place to download what I needed.

Regards,
Rob.

------------

The 4mb card is tiny and doesn't have a plug like other video cards, I think maybe it's just a memory expansion so theres only one place to plug in.

Hi Rob250x,

Deskpro EN P800 drivers

The above link will take you to the Compaq driver download area. Compaqs are always fun to play with. My school district uses Compaq/HP exclusively. The driver you are searching for is probably going to be either the matrox adapter, the nVidia adapter, or the Intel adapter. I know that is a broad statement, but Compaq may have used any of those. When the computer starts, and everything appears on your sceen as black and white, look to see if you notice one of those makers listed.

There is also a section for SFF, or small form factor computers. The size of that computer is about 4" high by 14" wide. I am fairly certain that the drivers are the same for the too, but will list a link anyways.

P800 SFF computers

AGP memory expansion This is the expansion card you decribed. It is an add on that boosts memory for video.

Good luck,

Rigel

Hi rigelslight,

Thanks for the detailed answer, I tried all 3 driver packs and the last one i tried worked ;). It was the Intel driver. Thanks heaps!

Regards,
Rob.
