Zotac's GT220 driver for Win2k?

Postby deksar » 2019-1-10 @ 17:41

Dear friends,

I'm looking for Zotac's GT220 PCI VGA (1GB) drivers for Win2k Professional. I'm sick and tired of looking for that. Does anyone has any idea/link regarding the topic?
Card: https://www.zotac.com/lk/product/graphics_card/gt220

Many thanks in advance!

There is absolutely no NVIDIA GT 220 driver for Windows 2k?

I have no experience with either option I'm suggesting but:

1) Looks like there are some modified Nvidia drivers which *may* work: http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/ar ... 14373.html (Some versions require KernelEx patched OS)
I'd atleast try this - http://w2k.flxsrv.org/cgi-bin/dl.cgi?file=nv2k19745.exe , doesnt appear to require KernelEx

2) If you don't need 3D acceleration, you should be able to find Universal Vesa drivers - http://bearwindows.boot-land.net/vbemp.htm
Check out DOSBox Distro:

a lightweight Linux distro (tinycore) which boots off a usb flash drive and goes straight to DOSBox.

Wow, THANK YOU SO MUCH, BinaryDemon! It worked! Your suggestion has successfully installed my VGA card! There are a lot of users all around the Internet forums looking for that thing, as I've seen recently.
So in case if someone happen to appear here from Google, what I did:
-First, (nv2k19745.exe needs that) I installed Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4(v2) on my Windows 2000 Pro SP4. Got it here: http://w2k.flxsrv.org/cgi-bin/wluc.cgi? ... =/&KEY=SRP
-Then I downloaded and ran nv2k19745.exe from http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/ar ... 14373.html

Thanks once again.

P.S: dxdiag reports that Direct 3D is not enabled. Perhaps that's because the default low version of DirectX on the system? (ver.7 something). I'm going to update it to directx_feb2010_redist.exe which is the latest one for Win2k I assume.. I'll keep here updated.

You can use older xp drivers if you manually install them from the device manager.
No sir I don't like it!

Using XP drivers for installing Nvidia GT 220 card on Windows 98SE? I don't really think that would work.

He meant using an older XP driver on Windows 2000.
