Setting up graphics card

I have just formatted my hard disk and re-installed win 98. The problem is that windows does not recognise my graphics card and so I am left with a VGA display. I can not find the name of the graphics card on the motherboard and have no drivers for it. Can anyone suggest something I could try?

Will pull the graphics card tommorrow when I am free and check the chip set. The only other information I can give you is that both sound and graphics cards are located on the motherboard which is a cyrix 233 capable of handling 300

Then who makes the motherboard?  Find out, and the model, and go to their web site and download the appropriate drivers.  Also, look on the motherboard for the chipset (since it doesn't have a "card") as the oldgreyguy suggests.

If you have the monitor warmed up and on before a cold boot or hard reset then it may flash the video chipset and bios information on the screen before the system bios info, you kinda usually hafta have photographic vison though.

Right, find the FCC number on the grafix card, and enter it at: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/ This will tell you the manufacturer.  Then goto the manufacturers web page (find it at www.driverzone.com) and look-up the card using the number on the chip.  Then download the driver and away you go!
