I accidentally uninstalled my video adapter sotware. Now, W2K wants to install a VGA video card. It will not allow me to install my display adapters software. I tried to change the refresh rate om the monitor tab in display options, but all options are greyed out.

I have an ATI 128 Rage Unltra display adapter on my machine.

In the devices listing, windows show the Vidoe card with an exclamation piont. I have an NEC Accusync 75F monitor and I do not see the monitor listed in the device manager either. Please help ASAP.
