You mean 64V+
Did you get the drivers from www.s3.com ? They are better then the vendor ones.
Check the refresh tab, maybe you set the refresh rate to low and driver thinks your monitor can not support this.

Yes I did mean 64v+ Slip of the Finger :)
My monitor can do it as I had high resolution 1000x
on Win95 OS/2 and WinNT before.
But can not get it on WinNT now.
Yes I agree its the refresh rate is the problem as by memory
I think I had it set for Interlaced ( or non-interlaced) cant remeber With a refresh rate. But the drivers I use now has not
the refresh rate that used to work before
Thats why I am looking for a old driver that may work

It's YOU from the "Video Driver" question.
I think you need the interlaced settings.
You do not have the original disketts from the vendor?

The Original CD that I have with the card has only
NT 3.5 and no NT4 drivers but I did download it from there

The Monitor is a TP 250LR
and in Win95 I select  ctx 5468 style monitor
I do get 1024x768 true colour on Win95 OS/2 V4
and did get it on WinNT V4 a few month ago

Install the newest driver for NT
Start in VGA resolution
Go to Display-properties
There you can change the resolution, set it to 1024
Do NOT press OK, switch to the refresh tab

Please list all refresh rates that can be set there.

If I am wrong: how do _you_ set the refresh rate ?
