SVGA Emulator

Hello, all! Recently I tried installing Britanica99 on my Compaq Presario 1070 laptop. As you might know, Presario1070 uses Neomagic's graphic exalator. However, whenever, I start BCD installation, I get an error saying that my display is not SVGA-complient. I called Britanica's techsupport twice, but, not surprisingly enough, they didn't know the answer. They said, I need to get some kind of emulator that will simulate SVGA mode. Do any of you know what that driver might be? I'd be grateful for any input, Victor

Hi, Have you yourself tried installing Britanica by any chance? I think, that this laptop supports SVGA mode, so why BCD doesn't recognise it?
Best regards,
Victor

I think SciTech Display Doctor will help you. It's exactly what
you need. It even can emulate VESA 2.0 standard for SVGA.

Thank you for your answer. Although I already found an answer, merely a visual mistake of mine. Didn't notice that resolution was 640/480 rather 800/600.
Best rregards,
