Video Driver Matsonic 7308D_E

I've been searching for quite some time now for a video driver for a Matsonic 7308D motherboard.  I went to their web site and downloaded the "proper" driver, but it refuses to work.  I've tried just about any driver I could get my hands on from their site but no luck.
I've even investigated my chipset to see if there were answers there; chipset is a SiS 650 (chip on the board sez 950) as determined through SiSs on-line chipset guesser.  I tried the video driver that they recommended, but alas no luck.
Perhaps somebody out there still has the original CD or something that works.
This is for a Windows 2000 installation.  If anybody has the XP version, I'll take that too.

http://download.sis.com/sisdlc/driver_select.jsp and under category select 'chipset'.  download the AGP chipset drivers for Win2000 and install them.  Then reinstall your drivers.

Thanks for the help, but sadly this board uses an onboard VGA video adapter.  

About the SiS chipset drivers, I have combed through the device manager and resolved any problems that I can see.  You think that adding the chipset utilities will "make" my driver work?

If you have more advice to offer, I would certainly appreciate it.  

Thanks.

I understand that the board has onboard video . . .  the thing is, the operating system CANNOT run the onboard agp card properly without having the AGP chipset utility software installed.

It MUST be installed before the video drivers in order for the video drivers to work properly.  They work together.

Install the chipset utility, reboot the pc, then (if you still need) install the latest video drivers.
