Planning to re-install w98 asIt seems to lose control of the desktop icons,
in the sense when I click on my pc - nothing happen. Cant even re-size the
browser
Before I re-install, at present under the display adapter - it has "3dfx
voodoo banshee" listed. Is this driver inside the w98cd? Cant figure out
which one when I google it, so hope you can direct me to the exact link for
this driver, thanks

1. Via / Control Panel / System / Device Manager
select your driver and write down the filename(s) listed at
/ Properties / Driver / Driver File Details. They will be VXD
files, probably in C:\Windows\System

2. Select each file in turn and inspect / Properties / Version
which will tell you the manufacturer's name.
(VMM32.VXD will have no manufacturer's name because
that was custom-assembled on the date you installed
the Win98 OS.) Most makers of video cards have
drivers more up to date than those included in the Win98 CD.

The 3dfx voodoo banshee drivers should be included with Win9x. If you have the
98CD look in the Drivers > Display > 3DFX >Banshee folder.

You can also get the original and/or 3rd party drivers from here.
