I have a Win2003 Server.  It has DirectX 9.0c on it.  I just installed a Pine SiS 315_315E Graphics Card.  When I go to Display Properties,  The Advanced Tab is not available.  When I do dxdiag the DirectDraw, Direct3d options are also disabled.  I bought the 3d card so I could have these options and the DirectX does not even see the manufacturer.  Please Help

I checked out the driver support for this card.

I believe that this is the SiS reference driver for your device.  A few things to point out on this.  It is from 10/2003, and it isn't for server 2003.  Try this driver and see how it works.  For most devices windows will install a good driver, but yours may be an exception.

I probably should have mentioned that this was the driver I installed. I did have the Windows installed driver and I have tried both under the device manager.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Well I have figured it out.  Since I manage the server remotely,  I had to use Radmin to get in and adjust the settings.  MS Remote Desktop mask the graphics of the server and would not work, Radmin or VNC will not, therefore allowing you to adjust Hardware Acceleration.

Thanks  Though,
