Well I recently installed Rise of Nations onto my computer. Now awhile back I was able to play it, then we reformatted it. Hadn't gotten around to it, but I decided to re-install it. It gets past both intro movies fine, but right before it gets to the title screen, it doesn't go anywhere. No sound or Title screen, but I can still move the mouse and can hit the windows button to end it. I am almost 100% sure that its a driver problem since I didn't have trouble with it in till after we reformatted my computer. For what ever reason, I can't seem to find the update for it. Went to S3's website, searched for the update with there auto finder and they couldn't find the update. I have tried 3 different driver update programs all telling me that its out of date.

The Hardware is a S3 DDR Savage Pro SVGA (Computers custom built and that's what it says on the sticker). I need version 6.14.10.6378. I'm running XP Pro. Any help would be appreciated.

What leads you to that particular version number?

It comes up attached to the Pro Savage DDR driver in the VIA 4-in-1 driver installer SP24004.exe from various sources, eg:
