    Help with HP

    I am working on a friends HP 8693C pavilion today.
    OS is Win 98 SE. Owner did not have recovery disk so I was forced to kill the partitions, format a reinstall Win SE.

    I found drivers for Sound and Modem.

    I cannot find driver for video card. Right now it is limited to 16 color VGA.

    Can anyone help?????

    Efc,
    It runs on an Intel Video driver and the most recent download from HP is at the link below:



    printable version
    Intel i810 Driver Update(English (American), Espanol, Francais, Norsk, Svenska)

    Step 1: Do you need to update?

    Release date: 07-Dec-2000 Version: 4.12.01.2641

    Why do I need it? This driver has updated video support for Direct-X 7.0 Graphics Driver for Intel ® 810/810E/815/815E Chipsets Windows 95, 98 and Windows ME Driver Revisions (4.12.01.2641) and resolves Quick Time issues.

    How do I get it? Follow the instructions provided by the Download button on this page.

    What do I do with it? Once the download is complete, follow the instructions provided by the screen prompts or readme file where it applies.


    http://www.hp.com/cgi-bin/cposupport...3c+desktop+PC+(US)

    i810_2641_r2.exe (7.59M)

    Hope that helps.


    Also,
    If you want a better driver that comes from Intel (I highly recommend it):

    http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...E&submit=Go%21


    That should give you an intel tool with extra options and the Intel Graphics control panel.
