Good grief, bleeping computer!
I bought a Diablotek ATI VAR 128P-32P Rage 128 Pro Video Card for my old HP computer as described above for the problem described above.
First, the new video card drivers, furnished on a CD, are for Windows NT or 95 or 98 or 2000. I have XP so I down-loaded the XP driver from the Diablotek web-site. I installed the new video card into an open PCI slot......now the problems start.... On computer boot/start-up computer tells me there is a conflict and to pick the video adapter I want to use. I select PCI-2 as that is where the new video card is installed. Computer also tells me to uninstall the onboard video program, but there is no uninstall button to click as it suggests. OK, I go to the Control Panel, System, Device Manager, Display Adapters and select to uninstall the Intel 82810 Graphics Controller,,,,,but if I uninstall I can not use my monitor to install my new video card, etc., etc., etc. Oh, I forgot… I also had to download a RAR program to read the XP Driver from Diablotek. Now the drivers, programs, Set-up wizard are all on my Desktop, but when I click on them I always get messages telling me something is wrong. I still can not figure out how to uninstall and re-install a new video card without loosing my monitor - which I need to finish an install…good grief this bleeping computer!
Please, I need a click-by-click description of what to do.
