What version of drivers?
From memory, (it was a long time since I had the card), ForceWare drivers would allow to be installed on that card up to version 7X.XX, but there is no benefit in doing so (they had only optimizations/functions for later generations of Nvidia cards), the best (fastest and most compatible) version of the drivers for that card was Detonator 2X.XX (26?). I write this from memory, so it might not be so accurate.

Even downloading and reinstalling the same version might help. I remember drivers of that time were somewhat difficult to uninstall, so proceed with caution.
If it's properly installed, it should at least work, but if it doesn't, that indicates some other possible problem with computer that old. Also, maybe DirectX should be updated?
And this topic better be moved to Windows 9X forum, someone there might provide better help?

The last Forceware unified display driver which supported the Riva TNT family was driver version 44.03. You may download this driver from our driver archive page from the links below:
For Microsoft Windows XP/2000:
For Microsoft Windows 98/Me:

NVIDIA drivers do not uninstall well with their own uninstallers or from the Add/Remove Programs. Use Driver Cleaner Pro Version 1.5 to remove them completely before reinstalling any other version.
Driver Cleaner Pro Version 1.5 does support 9x and is freeware but finding a download location seems to be getting more difficult. It is still available from the following link.

Choose Search for a better driver and click Next
Choose Specify a location
Browse to C:\Nvidia\Win9x\44.03 and click Next
If it asks for "Disk 1" or anything else, keep pointing it to
