Hi,

 

i just got a Toshiba Tecra S2 Laptop, with a 1.7 GHz Pentium M, 1GB of Ram, and a GeForce 6600 Go graphics.

 

(Model Nr. PTS20E-121032GR)

 

Ought to be perfect for Win98SE.

 

Unfortunately, i wasn't able to install any kind of NVIDIA driver after successfully installing Win98SE, neither the 77, not the "inofficial" 82.69.

 

That GeForce is to be an PCIe-Version, unfortunately, that's why, i suppose.

 

Any advice?

 

Ragnar G.D.

Not really much help, and I've also seen where PCIE doesn't work with Windows 98, but I installed an ATI Radeon X600 PCIE card in a computer with Windows 98 and was able to get the graphics working. I know that for a fact.

 

What happens when you try installed the driver? Does it just say that it can't find any nvidia chipset? Maybe because it's go graphics, it's a bit different? Have you tried forcing the driver to install by doing it the manual way though the device manager and browsing the driver pack for the correct driver?

Some PCI-E Video Cards do work with Windows 98SE.
If the card is not recognzed, it's Device ID may need to be added to the list in the NVAGP.INF File.
In 7.7.7.2 only the 6600 and 6600 GT are listed.

This card is PCIe 16x, and has the NV43M chipset.

See: http://en.wikipedia...._6xxx.29_Series

Adding this to the NVAGP.INF made the driver "recognize" the card, but it does not seem similar enough to the NV43 (GeForce 6600 AGP/PCIe), as it crashed anyway.

No luck on this. :(
