Hello Cliffman.

Windows 98 dose not have many drivers built into the system as Windows 2000 and Windows XP dose. So your grahics card driver may not be installed. If you have the disk just put it in and install it, If you do not have the disk just go to the Manufactures website and they should have the Driver to download for free

Let me know if this helps.

how can I find out the manufacturer, do I have to talk to take the graphics card out and look at it?

yes you will have to look at it to fidn the model and manufacture. So yea you will have to open up the computer.

let me know if you need any more help.

I found out that I have an s3 virge/gx2 86c357 agp video card I tried getting the drivers and I downloaded this program called regcure. the only problem im having now is every thing I see in the screen is so big with the 16 color setup that I have right now that I cant even scroll down to hit the scan repair button and almost every thing I choose from google redirects me to this..........????
