Running Windows 98.
I thought this machine was set up fine (it certainly was once...) but I hadn't used it for 18 months. Now... it boots up fine but I cannot look at the dispplay properties. Trying this repeatedlt gives three different error messages - basically about problems with desk.cpl, and run32.dll (thats not the full name but I am not on the machine right now) causing problems in a voodoo dll.
From what I have seen on the net, this is probably due to Voodoo 2 drivers not being installed/uninstalled properly. Previously I was using Creative 6670 drivers (which I found to be flawless) but now the card is being picked up as fastvoodoo 2.4.6 when I try to uninstall/reinstall. I guess this was the last thing I fiddled with before putting the computer on ice for so long.
I even tried reinstalling Windows but that made no difference (seemed to just pick up all the old settings). Is there any clever way to clean the registry and/or elsewhere to get it back to using 6670 drivers?
