Reset Bad Video Driver
Posted on 2001-07-12
I have Win 2000 advanced server installed. The system has a chromatic research MPACT AGB card, but this company is gone, sold it's stuff to another company (ATI maybe..I forget). Anyway, in my quest to get hires working I installed a driver that does not work with the card (I had read some info on the net about potentially compatible drivers..I guess I used the wrong file..or the info was bad). Now when I boot, my video screen goes into stand by, blank screen.
I have tried using F8 to boot in VGA mode, Safe Mode and Safe Mode Command prompt. All three still use this bad driver, blank screen.
The system triple boots, Win ME, Win NT and Win 2000. I think I installed Win 2000 at FAT32, so I should be able to get to the drive via Win ME.
Any ideas on how to get this system back to using a default VGA driver? Thanks
