Default Can anyone find this driver?

I've searched on alot of driver sites for this driver. It's the ViRGE/DX/GX (375/385) driver for my graphics card. I think this is quite an old card but all the zip files I get dont help me as Windows cant even recognise the file types.

Does anyone know where to find this driver that will work with Win7?
I think my PC is using the Standard graphics adapter and not the ViRGE GPU.

Default Re: Can anyone find this driver?

Seriously?! This card was from memory released somewhere around the mid 90's, support ended long ago (from a quick look on the website it looks like it ended with ME!)

Your only vague hope is the NT drivers - give those a go, if any of those will work then it'll probably be them. I doubt you'll have much luck though, the reason you can't find drivers for any newer OS is because they don't exist!

Why are you trying to use such an old card anyway?

Wow I had a feeling it was old but not that old!

Well me and a mate of mine built this computer cos the one I had before was old and crap but obviously the graphics card we put in it wasn't great. I suppose I can check if he has a better spare one.

Ok well I'll try the NT drivers, anyway thanks for the help.

Either that or buy the cheapest one you can find (that's compatible obviously!) Any new card (and any second hand one up to a few years old) is going to be exponentially better than the one above.
