    Hello thanks for the idea. Unfortunately, that doesn't tell me what I need as it is all "generic" info there. Manufacturer; chip type; DAC type; approximate memory, and monitor are all N/A Only thing it shows is 1024 X 768 resolution. On the section for DRIVERS it simply shows a main driver: vga.dll version: 5.01.2600.0000 (english) date: 8/23/2001 WHQL logo'd: Yes mini VDD: vga.sys VDD: N/A DDI Version: unknown eventually, I just took the ard out of the computer and found it is labeled Appian Phoenix 4 port. Googling that, I find a Phoenix Radeon card, but it is set up slightly different with the fan configuration and some other small points (mine does NOT say radeon on it anywhere). The radeon card has an associated number on some sites of 799-00400. On my card I find 251-00400. Googling my number brings up two results, neither of which lead anywhere and I can't find reference to it anywhere else. I googled for over an hour trying to find the exact card I have and thats as close as it gets, so maybe I just have a slightly modified version or variation of the radeon 9000. Ok, so now I just go and download those drivers right? Wrong! I can't find the radeon 9000 drivers anywhere. Seems every place I find that supposedly has them for download is a scam for selling Driver Detective or some such program that tells you what drivers your system needs to update. The scan is free, to get the product always costs (whatever). So even if I buy that program, I still don't know if they will have the drivers I need for download in their database. Reading through the info/description of the Radeon 9000, it appears there is some connection to ATI. (see: and hit CTRL+F to search for Appian and the info comes up near the bottom of the page. Also found this blurb elsewhere - "Appian has released the Phoenix Radeon QD, a 4-monitor low-profile PCI video card with two ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 chipsets, 128 MB RAM, and support for VGA and DVI" ). Anyway, Appian graphics appears to be out of business. Phone numbers, fax and email all lead nowhere. What do you suggest I try from here?

If your OS is XP SP2, you can un install the Graphics card via device manager and on re boot let Windows new found hardware wizard pick it up and it should set up your Card itself, as the CD's drivers are probably not the latest XP SP2 compatible driver.

You could also go to the Graphics card's Manufacturer's Support site and download the latest XP compatible driver, or whatever OS's driver you require.

You can look here also:

Good luck.

I want to drive 5 displays from one pc. can i install a matrox 9148 and use the onboard grpahics card shipped with my pc for the fifth screen. it is an NVIDEA GEforce card.

No, you cannot do that, they are different brands, are using different video drivers and Windows cannot run more than a single video driver at a time.

Hello I bought a used hp compaq dc7100 computer that is supposed to have a video card that allows me to run 2 monitors (the guy actually said it supports 4 monitors). Hooking everything up and turning on...

You could find the exact model of your graphics card by clicking on run and then running dxdiag. You will then goto the display tab and it will show you what you need to know. Then just google the drivers for whatever card you have.

I need a Vista driver for Appian Graphics Rushmore Graphics Card

Look at your motherboard spec's and see what you have for a video card slot, then see what chipset
is running your board, if the chipset is ati then get an Ati card,if nvidia,then nvidia card.

I have never even heard of these card MFG, and don't see there support sites.

My opinion would be to go to a place online like and find a card for your board, a good cheap card will run about 30-40.00 dollars. The graphics will be a lot better on your pc.

If the cards came with the pc,you can try and go to the site of the pc maker and see if there is a vista driver, if not, you either have to reinstall xp or buy a new card. Hope it works out.

it is not usually possible to upgrade the graphics card on a laptop. as the graphics chips are on the motherboard. and they do not usually have a graphics card slot.

some (quite recent) laptops have a graphics express slot which does allow for them to be upgraded.

most often you find that laptop graphics chips share mem with the main RAM (allocated) this is controlled in the BIOS(Setup) and it may be possible to increase the allocation of memory there,

but I'm sorry to say for most laptops there is no upgrade (flexibility is traded for portability)


the 5002WLMI does not appear to have a grpahics express slot, however you may be able to increase the mem allocation in the BIOS (as it does use allocateable shared memory)

Trouble with appian typhoon

Sounds like a nice setup! And just for the record, the company did not go out of business but changed the name of their business (now calling themselves "colorgraphic". You can find the necessary info by going to and selecting Support->Appian ( I would recommend going into the Desktop Management Control utility (once you are booted up) and make sure the "boot to Single Screen" option is selected. From what I read you should still see everything but it might be spread across the two screens. Has this been the case since day 1 or is this something that used to work OK but no longer does? That would help a bunch. If it used to work and now doesn't, can you think of anything you might have done to cause it, like recently installed software or Windows update? The above website should give you the necessary information to solve the problem. It does appear they no longer provide support for the Appian cards (which are really just ATI cards). Good luck!
