All,
I was given a Gateway Gp6-400 recently, and it was in need of major clean up and rebuild. This computer looked new inside and so I really would like to get all the features running, if possible. Like a dummy I
neglected to try and see what DVD player was on it before I wiped the hhd and re-installed Win98se. All went well, Gateway had the video drivers for the 6000921 card, and that took care of the video, but no DVD program. There's a DVD inter-face card 6000658 that is in there and it's a STB systems card with a large IC with MPACT LG electronics on it. My real problem is what DVD program operating program works with this card??? I haven't been able to find a program that states that it relates to that card. I find numerous DVD players for Win98se, but I'm not sure what will work with that card. Oh, yes it does have a DVD/CD rom in it, not a burner just a player. I tried the STB site and don't remember finding what I needed. Thanks :thumbsup:

Try these drivers.
Then you will need a DVD player. PowerDVD works with 98.
In the beginning there was the command line.

So haven't you found the graphics car drivers yet?

You could take the cover off and look for any names or numbers on the video card then do a search in http://members.driverguide.com/index.php You will have to join DriverGuide before you can download anything but thats no hassle and its a useful site to have in your favorites.

You could look in Device Manager to see if there are any names or numbers in Display Adapters. :wink:

Keith,
Yes I did thank you for asking. I got those early on for both the video card and the daughter card that goes with it. I posted the numbers off the cards and either you or Eyesee gave me the links from Gateway that I over looked and that took are of them . I got a shareware DVD player "Media Player Classic" that actually seems to work pretty good. I don't have any heavy use for this box I just wanted it mostly working before I pass it on to someone who can use it. Again thanks for all your help!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Greg
