Cannot find graphic driver for windows 98


http://reviews.cnet.com/motherboards/via-epia-en12000eg-motherboard/4507-3049_7-32071585.html

VIA Support > VIA EPIA EN12000EG > Main Support page,

http://www.viaembedded.com/en/products/boards/399/1/EPIA_EN_%28EOL%29.html

(It's the correct support page, because I have looked at the motherboard manual )

See the blue subheadings? -
Overview / Ordering Information / Datasheet (PDF) / Downloads

Put your mouse cursor on -> Downloads
Don't click. It will automatically open that tab, when your mouse cursor is sitting on it.

Scroll down to - Driver - heading
Scroll down to Integrated VGA in the left column, stop on the first one -
16.01.23.19 / 2006/01/2002 / En_vga_9xme.zip (in blue)

9x = Windows 95, or 98, or 98SE
me = Windows Me

Means it is for Windows 95, or Windows 98, or Windows 98SE, or Windows Me.

Click on the blue - En_vga_9xme.zip

A small window will come up -
Opening EN_vga_9xme.zip

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of Save File.
IF not; click in the small circle to the left of - Save File.
Now go below in the small window, and click on - OK.

A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

[Whew that was SLOW!
7.71MB file, and it downloaded at 23.9KB a second.
It may be that I slid my optical mouse a little, when I clicked on it.
Always keep an optical mouse still, when clicking, lol! ]

In the next small window go to the far left, and click on -
Extract all files

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

[DO NOT change the settings in the second small window.
Windows knows where to put the graphics driver files.
Just click on Next ]

If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so.

How do i open the acer al5100


From Acer Support,
"Opening the computer:
Remove the screws on the chassis. Slide the panel off"

Yeah, okay Acer.

To convert this computer to a tower position. there is a Stand.

Does the computer just sit in this stand, or are there screws that hold it to the computer case? If present they would come up from the Bottom. Remove.

Looking at the back of the computer case, with the computer standing up; it appears there is a Triangle shape, coming off the LEFT Side Panel.

Appears to be about halfway up.

Looking at the Front of the computer, the Left side.
Looking at the computer from the Back, it's the right side.

Triangle shape coming from middle of left side, has the 'top
cut off. Remove/loosen the single Philips head screw.
Pull BACK of the Side Panel.

How do i know were to put and how manny power cables i need too insert on msi 990fax-gd65


Let's take a look at the MSI 990FXA-GD65 motherboard, and I will tell you, AND show you;

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/990FXA-GD65.html

To the right under the bold heading - AMD 990FX chipset based,
there are views of the motherboard.
I would like you to click on the second from the Left view.
(Shows a Top view of the motherboard) It is turned to the Right.

Turn the view 90 degrees to the Left, and this is how it will be sitting in your computer case.
If you move your mouse cursor around on the view, you will see a magnified view of what the mouse cursor is on.

I will do better than this in a moment, and you will download the Motherboard Manual.

A) Requires a 24-pin ATX main power cable. The connector on the motherboard has a Locking Tab.
The power cable's connector has a Lock with a hooked end.

To ENSURE the power cable is plugged in tightly to the motherboard, the hooked end of the Lock, MUST be over the tab on the motherboard connector,

Basic example of a 24-pin ATX power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

In the photo on MSI Support, the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector on the motherboard, is on the bottom of the motherboard under the Blue, and Black ram memory slots. It is Black in color.

B) Requires an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable. This power cable provides the 12 Volt power needed for the motherboard.
(DO NOT confuse it with an 8-pin PCI-Express power cable. More on this later)

On the motherboard JPWR2 should be printed next to it.
In the MSI Support view, it is at the top RIGHT corner of Military Class.
Black in color, 8 socket holes.

Basic example of an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8

The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable was brought out, to replace the 4-pin ATX power cable.
The Yellow wires you see are 12 Volt wires.

The 4-pin ATX power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires. (And two Black ground wires)
The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable has FOUR Yellow 12 Volt wires.
(And four Black ground wires)

As more power was required from the motherboard, the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable was brought out, to replace the 4-pin ATX power cable.

C) IF, you are using a graphics card, the motherboard requires a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable ALSO.

This power cable provides more power, to the motherboard's PCI-Express x16 graphics expansion slots, (2)

[ To regress for a moment, you have TWO PCI-Express x16 graphics expansion slots, and TWO PCI-Express x1 expansion slots.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slots are used for a graphics card.
The PCI-Express x1 expansion slots are NOT. They do not require additional power, either ]

NOTE*
1) IF, your graphics card requires an additional power cable plugged into it, USE IT.
Even with a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the motherboard.

2) IF, you do not have the additional power cable, from your Power Supply for your graphics card, AND are using a power adapter cable TO the graphics card, make SURE you use the required amount of 4-pin Peripheral power cables, to that power adapter cable.

Look at a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

You will see it has ONE Yellow 12 Volt power wire. (Red is 5 Volts, Black wires are Ground wires)

Using a 4-pin Peripheral power cable TO 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable, the 6-pin PCI Express power cable requires TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress


Short solution?

A) You have to have an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.
B) Use a 6-pin PCI Express power cable also, if you are using a graphics card.
C) Use the power cable/s needed for the graphics card, IF it requires one.

On the first link above to the MSI Support website, hover your mouse cursor on the Downloads tab.
In the drop down list that appears, left-click on - Manual.

Drop down to the bottom file, and left-click on the blue - E7640v3.2.zip
This is a Zip file. After you click on the file name (E7640v3.2.zip), a small window will come up on the right.

Click on Save File. In the small window to the left that comes up, write down the wording at the top. This is where the zip file will download to.
Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads.

[ If you are using a computer with Windows 7 on it, it is
Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads ]

Go to where the file is, DOUBLE-click on it. On the far left side click on
Extract all files. Then click on Next, Next, and Finish.
In the last window DOUBLE-click on the file name. (Next to the Adobe PDF icon)

I need to reset the bios as it gets to the black screen and the flashin cursor in top left but then just freezes after that and doesn't do anything. Please help


You need to run the Check Disk Utility. You've got a missing or corrupt boot or system file.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Hi there, most likely there is a problem with either the GPU of your laptop.
The only other troubleshooting step you can try is to open the laptop up and reseat the connector of the LCD to the motherboard where your GPU is integrated.
You may also want to try an external monitor and if nothing is displayed or the same screen is displayed then the GPU of your laptop is fried and it needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps!
