RIVA TNT2 vga drivers installation?


when I try to change resolution other than 800X600 there is no effect. Then I noticed the following while clicking the advanced in the display box.

Video card type : RIVA TNT2
Mrmory size : 32 megabytes
Driver : nv

Is there any requirement to reinstall the drivers and if so then from where I can install these?

Is it because you monitor setting is not correct? need to relog to take effect.

by the way, your PC should be old if you use TNT2. I have a Athelon 850 and the nVIDIA binary driver really boost the performance.
