Hi,

I get a AGP video card from an "old" machine (2-3 years), i caonnt use the
video card because
the CDROM for the video card is lost, and i do not know the brand of the
card. Can someone tell
me how to detect the card brand so that i can download the driver.

thanks in advance.

I would put the card into one of my WinXP_SP1 machines, boot (via F8)
into VGA mode and start WinXP. Then I would look for the video card in
the Windows device manager and in a system tool as Sandra or Everest
(the de facto successor of Aida32) or PC Wizard 2004.
If Everest detects the card and its manufacturer, it supplies the link
for a driver download...

Use DOS Debug to dump the contents of the video BIOS.

Tell us about any writing on the chips or the card.

There's word "A5PT" on the card.

i've not yet tried proposition of Roy.

With method of Franc i fond the words "Rage 128 Pro". It's ATI.

With XP that i just installed, i do not need a driver, the card
is recognized as "Rage 128 Pro AGP 4x TMDS".

But still i need a driver in win98 or winme (i have some
game running in win98). In site of ATI, i find a the driver
for Rage 128 Pro for win2000, but when installed it says the
display adapter is imcompatible ! Strange. Same thing when i
try the Rage 128 Pro win98 version driver in my Win98 system.

Any idea?

Finally i use winme instead of win98, and it recognizes this card.
So Winme and WinXP all recognize the card, my pb is resolved.
Thanks for all folks giving me ideas.
