hi to all out there,

Trying to pimp my medieval Aptiva 1264 I got myself the Acer AL1916W LCDscreen this time:-) Browsing to upgrade I got the impression that no XP drivers are available for the installed Riva128 videocard...

Do I need to get back to the shop and buy a new videocard (which one works with Aptiva since this machine is really picky: if PCI-card version is not 2.1 compatible is halts at startup haha), or does anyone know where to download a driver for my NRiva128 that allows 1440x900? Ps I assume that the driver determines which resolution-setting I can choose from at desktop screenprops?
