Hmmm...Well, I don't think I'm in much of a position for giving credible help, seeing as I'm having Video Card Installation issues of my own. :upset:

However, if you're looking for drivers, ANY driver, try www.driverguide.com . They want you to register, but I have been registered there well over a year and they have never bothered me...

I have the same card, and I also had problems with my card when I got it ... it would freeze and vertical lines would appear on the screen ... turns out you need to look at the card, and you have to switch off two switches on the card and actually plug a floppy power cable into the side of the card. This will fix it.

Go to this page to read about it, lots of people had the problem and this guy figured it, so hope it works for you...
