I just nuked my pc (formatting it then reinstalling WinME), and I didn't backup my drivers (because I'm dumb), so I'm in the process of retrieving 'em all. Now you know what it is, I run on the crappy 640x480x4bit (16 colors) desktop. And I need to find a cure for that. I have a Monster 3D II card (voodoo2 chipset), a TX Pro-II motherboard and on that motherboard, there's an integrated SiS5597 VGA card. Now, I don't have A CLUE on how to bring back my resolution. I tried getting the latest 5597 drivers from the SiS website (, but I couldn't change the res. I could move the little tab in the settings section of my display properties, but it rebooted and said 'there's a problem with your display drivers'. And the fact is, the computer should use my screen (mag innovision dx1795) together with my monster 3d II card, right? Because the monster3d is my graphics card..but it doesn't do what it's supposed to do!! and YES, the screen is plugged in the monster3d card, NOT on the motherboard (there's no place to do that, though). I've been trying to play with the Bios (but I have NO knowledge of that) a bit, even installed lots of different drivers, nothing worked. HELP ME!
