    ATi 3D Rage Pro video driver(s)

    My friend has an ancient Dell GXa(?) with the mentioned ATi chipset on the motherboard. Windows 98SE has the fixed video output at 16 colours and the lowest resolution resulting in a 'washed out' display. I have attempted to change the settings to no avail. I've looked at the ATi webpage and cannot find a clear reference to the ATi 3D Rage Pro drivers. This slow machine is on a dial-up connection so I won't download everything for trial & error as it would take a month just to download all the possible drivers.

    Where might I be able to get the correct driver(s), or how do I get the display to be AT LEAST 256 colours and 800x600 resolution?

    When it comes to drivers for prebuilts, especially concerning integrated chipsets, your far better off getting them directly from the manufacturer. They are often tweaked or modified. Dell support has the drivers you're looking for.
