Hello hongkongandy =)

Uninstall ur Video card from Device manager and restart ur machine to reinstall the latest drivers for it !!
If u dont know the make and model of ur video card, then Download this utility and install it,

EVEREST Home Edition:
http://www.lavalys.com/products/download.php?pid=1&lang=en&pageid=3

it will give u a list of all the hardware attached to ur system, note down the correct
version and make of ur required device, and then search for the appropiate drivers either on
the manufacturere site, or u can also find them on www.driverguide.com

!! GOOD LUCK !!

http://www.samtron.com/download/files/w2kst77e.zip - if you are not

Reinstall drivers, as without them you can only have the gfx res and colours as high as if it was a generic card

If the PC is password protected and you don't know the password how are you opening the operating system?
Was the Old Operating system password protected and you loaded 2000 over it?
(operating system = Windows)

You can clear the hard drive just by inserting the Windows 2000 cd and at the boot choice you can choose to format the hard drive.
****************************************************************
To fix the driver:

Plain english

Read all the steps (and print this) before starting!!!!!!

1. Open windows explorer and create a directory called DUMP under the "C:" drive

2. CLICK on this link: http://www.samtron.com/download/files/w2kst77e.zip

3. Click on "SAVE" ...then.... in the new window find "SAVE IN" at the top .... click on the down arrow and find the "C" drive and then locate the "DUMP" directory you created and double click on it .... now click "SAVE"
The file will now be in your DUMP directory.

4. Do you have WINZIP software?? If no go to step 7. If yes, go to the DUMP directory in windows explorer and "right" click the file "w2kst77e.zip". Choose "Extract to c:\dump\w2kst77e".

5. Close windows explorer and all other running applications.

6. click on START then RUN and type in the box          C:\dump\w2kst77e\setup2000.exe         and then click OK
    FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FROM THERE.

7. If you dont have WINZIP click here http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,4172,00.asp 
and then click on the red word DOWNLOAD at the bottom of the paragraph then click on OPEN.  NOW GO BACK TO STEP 4.
