I am not sure what graphics card I have and not sure how to find out, but when installing win98 it will not pick up on the graphics card. All I know is that it needs a Radeon software. Any idea on how to find out what other stuff I have in the computer as I did have a bit of softwaer once that read my computer and told me every thing that I had. I have an old HP media desktop and running win 98 secound edition.

im not sure but radeon's site may have a programme that automatically updates your graphics drivers. try installing it and it might pick up your card. i think its called a catalyst software suite - install it and it may even just tell your your card name

download and run a small free program from Lavasoft called Everest Home. This will tell you everything inside your PC you need to know
