I've been stuck with finding the right graphic driver for mb MSI PM8M-V N1996 VT8237R 2.4GHz...
Recently I have formatted my HDD for Window error but forgot to copy any necessary driver for new XP installation. After I successfully installed XP SP2 on my desktop computer, I realized it could not play some games that were previously fine. After a throughout check, Ac'97 sound driver, SCSI/RAID and Video Controller (VGA Compatible) was not automatically install.
Sound driver issue was solved along but now I'm stuck with RAID and graphic drivers. For graphic, its driver were never install to begin with and it used vgasave which will not render some games and even apps/movies.
I tried to find possible related driver but none of them failed (minimum requirement not met)... Can anyone help me with this problem...
Window XP Pro SP2 OEM Version
Intel(R) Pentium 4 2.4Ghz
728MB RAM (512 and 256)
Motherboard MSI N1996 VT8237R
(only this what I could find with normal inspection)
While looking for drivers for you I found this post:
"Hi, well you guys have all been fooled by the N1996 in big alphanumerics. That some Australian certification number. The normal place for board numbers is between the PCI slots on most brands of motherboard. If you look there you will see MS-6178 ver x.x or some other number...
Ok the mystery is solved, the board is not N1996 but MS 6178 ver 1.1 in my True Blue PC. Go to MSI Global ? Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more Bios, driver, manuals, everything!
so ignore the N1996 on any board...and keep looking for the number between the slots."
Can you double check the model of your motherboard. Or take a picture of and post it here?
Yes I was able to extract it after I download it which reveal 2 folder Win2k-XP and Win98-ME... I run the setup inside Win2k-XP and it extracted to temp folder, follow the instruction and all but when it tried to install it show error and advice to look inside Windows directory for log file...
I found 0.log file in the directory but show nothing inside...
