Re: Matrox card questions

Thanks, dionb. That kind of comparison to a TNT2 was one of my curiosities. Driver problems is my guess, too. Could this G550 be an OEM variant, which is why it has a subsys ID that's not in Matrox's official driver package? The mobo in my Win98 box is a Biostar M7VIG400, in case there are known …

The driver setup program is not finding the card so it will not install the driver. Using the Add/Remove Hardware tool from Control Panel and directing it …

Matrox card questions

Hi guys, I found a couple of Matrox cards in one of my boxes and looking for some information. I've searched here and in Google and so far not finding much. First card is a 32MB G550 low profile PCI (G55MDDAP32DBF). In Matrox's archived drivers list the G400 drivers for Windows 98 lists G550 as …
