I am trying to refurbish a Compaq Presario 1650 laptop.

It came to me secondhand with crashed hard drive and no Compaq
software. Got it running well with a generic Win 98SE, though screen
resolution was only VGA.

To get decent screen resolution I had to use the MAGICGRAPH128XD
(6.16) DRIVER VERSION 4.10.01.0009, which runs under Win 98 (took a
lot of searching on the web to get that one).

To improve my access to hard ware I now want to upgrade the OS to Win
ME.

Does anybody know whether a video driver for the Presario 1650 is
included in Win ME? Or will the existing MagicGraph128XD still work?

What hardware are you trying to support that Me supports and 98 does not?
Me is NOT a good upgrade. Buggy, unreliable OS.

A USB PenDrive, for a start - hopefully. PenDrive's software is
supposed to support Win98, but it doesn't for me (and for many others,
to judge by Google).

Point is that I already have legit ME upgrade disk.
