Why cant I change resolution?

Hello there,
I have what my BIOS tells me is an STB Velocity 128 Ver 1.31 RIVA ZX vid card, and all was working fine until I had a crash installing Macafee (curse them) and had to reload the BIOS defaults to get windows to boot. Now my sys manager tells me that my best display driver is a standard PCI VGA adapter, and this one only allows me to have 640X400X16. I cant change the res settings or the colour settings. I have tried replacing the adapter in the sys manager, but whatever set of drivers I give it, from the win 98 CD to new ones I downloaded, it wont accept them. They always appear with a yellow exclamation mark on the sys man device driver display, and the error is code 24, device not present or not working or driver missing. I assume this is a common problem, can you help me out?

Remove the device from device manager windows Plug and play should re-identify the card whenit comes up and asks for the drivers for the card load them into the drive if the pc will not accept them this way then jus let windows assign it to whatever go into device manager then go to the video card and select properties go to the driver tab and click on update driver select not to update it from the list and point windows to the destination of the driver diskette that should fix it
What do you mean by 'won't accept them' for the drivers?  Will they install at all?  Will they not even appear in the selection list?
