I just recently returned a Diamond video card because they responded ZERO times to my support requests, about 5 or so. It was using the ATI Radeon. ATI responded to requests, but no resolution. I exchanged it for an eVga using another chipset. Much better support and it works. Win98SE, with a Viewsonic 20.1" LCD? What's wrong with *that* picture? ;-) Seriously, though, I've not had good luck finding any Win98 driver support for newer devices recently, so good luck on that. - Dan On 10/6/06, M Lazarus <mlazarus@xxxxxxxx> wrote:
I recently bought a Diamond Multimedia Stealth S9250PCI256-ATI Radeon(r) 9250 card. The purpose is to drive a Viewsonic 20.1" wide screen LCD monitor. It's connected via the DVI interface. The problem is that the video card drivers don't seem to support the optimal resolution for the monitor (which I think is 1680 x 1050), rather the highest it goes is 1600 x 1200, so the letters look a little fuzzy. This is for a Win98SE machine. I was finally (after many download failures and even CRC errors when installing) able to install the latest drivers, to no avail. Diamond's tech support seems non-existent. Numerous emails get have gotten bounced back with a "user quota over limit" message, but I think that that's for their entire email system, since I tried sending it to a user that almost certainly doesn't exist and received the same error. The tech support form on their web site did not elicit a response either. Does anyone know where I can get the proper drivers for this card? Or is there some registry tweak that will allow that size? TIA. -mark
