    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.

Hello, My winXP cannot recognize monitor Asus VH232T - windows suggests 4:3 resolutions only. Can you please advise where can I download the monitor driver? Video card is ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Thank...


Monitors do not generally require drivers. The .inf drivers to run almost all monitors are already in Windows.

The problem here is in the settings of the graphics card.

Many users aim for Maximum resolution, when what they should aim for is Optimum resolution, balancing the RAM, CPU, GPU, GRAM and Monitor''s resources in the most efficient and effective way.

Keeping the relevant software updated also has an impact on graphics performance (grpahics Card Drivers, Java, Flash, DirectX, Video Codecs, etc.)

If the video resolution is set too high (or too low), beyond the graphics capabilities of the monitor, on reboot, the monitor will be unable to resolve the image.

The simplest solution would be to use a different monitor to adjust the video resolution, shut down then test the preferred monitor again.

Right Click on desktop>Properties>Settings then use the slider scale to adjust resolution, then Apply, Yes on the optimum setting, them OK.

Find the optimum setting in XP with your graphics card for this monitor and you should be fine.

Hope this helps.

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.

Video displays vertical lines then goes blank

There could be 3 possible reasons for a vertical lines

1. Driver for graphics card needs to be updated
2. Grpahics card faulty
3. LCD problem

try connecting an external monitor and see if the display is also vertical on the monitor, if yes the problem is graphics card, if no, the problem is the LCD. Hope this helps

Can NBA2k10 (PC) work for Nvidia 8200M G (128mb) (integrated)?

It can play it, but for a good rendering you should put the game at the lowest settings and at low resolution. Save a few bucks more and buy a separate video card.

I have a Silicon Image 164 ADD DVI card added to my HP desktop DVI-D access card in an effort to get a dual monitor configuration. I get an exact clone in the second monitor. I have an HP compaq desktop...

If the Intel graphic card is part of the motherboard, you need to disable this in the BIOS. You need to install the Silicon grpahic driver, then you will be able to configure the screen resolution etc for each monitor.
