I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 3000 laptop, I installed Windows98 and Windows NT Server, so it will make it dual boot, but when I boot to windows nt server, it only give me 16 colors, and I called Dell, they claim they don't have the driver for NT, and I also called Neomagic, they tell me to call Dell again, this is the Neomagic MagicGraph 128XD, the manufacture told me the driver is include in the windows nt setup cdrom, but it doesn't work. It's only for the Neomagic MagicGraph 128 ZV, is anyone out there have the driver for nt, or knows where can I get it, I will give 300 points for it, Thanks!

Goto this link and at the bottom of the page is an option to search, search for Neomagic and take a look at the drivers listed for Nt, there is not an exact match but one of the Nt drivers may give you generic support for more then 16 colors, Most video cards share a common driver set and it may just function.

Actually, I found the driver from the dell website already, by the time I got your answers, and besides the locations you guys told me it's no longer available, it saids: error copying file, cannot copy A9533: cannot find the specified file.
