After installing my Diamond Monster 3DII software provided in the Diamond´s "Super CD",when i go to the control panel/Display icon,i check that the installation had 2 new tabs for the video card.One tab(wich has the drivers versions)  works perfect but when i click the other one(which has the gamma correction and other features,i think!) it gives an DESK.CPL error!
Can u help me on this?I´d appreciate!

Best Regards

Is there a Cyrix processor in your computer? If so, the problem is an incorrect hardware
detection of your system processor. There´s a patch file 686_P.EXE on the internet:
ftp://ftp.hastec.nl/pub/videokaarten/monster/patches/686_P.EXE which will solve this problem.
