Preferred Solution: Change my S3 ProSavage DDR

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Appears that your video is onboard, and that your board has an AGP graphics slot.

So you could theoretically purchase an AGP card to replace it. These are the supported types:
Supports AGP 2.0 1x/2x/4x

This is a quick search on Newegg, just make sure you stick to ones that have 4x, not ones that are exclusively 8x. You can probably search online elsewhere as well.

5 years old... forget about updating the S3 driver and invest in a PCI based video card. This will really improve your graphics performance. Updating the S3 driver won't do anything for you

Well, I installed W7 yesterday, and it looks quite promising so far. In fact, I'm genuinely impressed with it, except for the limited number of display drivers.

I put it on an old Compaq...model S3100NX, based on a Via chipset and utilizing an S3 ProSavage DDR video adapter. Of course I can't find drivers for it, for either Vista or W7.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might find something compatible? My display maxes out at 1024x768 which, while decent, is hardly adequate.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Welcome to the forums Chuck.

It may indeed be too old to even have drivers for it. The thing is, MS does not make the drivers for hardware. The hardware manufacturers do. Have you checked their site? Also, go into Device Manager and right click on your display adapter and select Update Driver.

If this does not work, and there is nothing on their site, it is probably too old.

So my friend wants to play a pc game (World of Warcraft) that does not support the S3 Prosavage graphics card series so he ordered a new card: Chaintech VGA Geforce 7600 AGP 4x/8x from Nvidia.

He says his motherboard only supports 4x which is why he bought this card which claims to be "4x/8x". However, after he installed the new card (without disabling his onboard Prosavage graphics chip)and restarted the comp, his monitor doesn't come on. What's the problem here?

Supposedly, Chaintech VGA 7600 AGP 4x/8x from Nvidia is compatible with computers that have onboard graphics chip. The instructions say to just install it and it should work.

Has anyone had this problem?

A:Switching from s3 Prosavage to Nvidia

He probably needs to disable his onboard video in the CMOS.

I have recently purchased a new [Albatron GeForce 128MB AGP] Video Card. My old video card, (the built in S3ProSavageDDR) will not let me install my new video card, because if I uninstall the ProSavage, it will only let me reinstall the ProSavage. If I install the Albatron, it says "Hardware Cannot Be Installed". No error messages came up; it simply wouldn't install.

A:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

Trying to set up a FP monitor, and in the process I tried changing the bios setting from onboard AGP (flat panel wasn't working with this, had to add another video adapter card) to PCI, thinking I could change it back if ineffective. But now my display on the monitor that WAS working is black, so I can't undo my mistake.

How to undo damage??

A:bios change, now can't view monitor to change back

If you remove the battery on the mothernoard
for a minute or two, the BIOS loses it's
current settings and goes back to the defaults
that will work on any system. You'll have to

hello, i have a 9800gt that gives a very low fps on crysis, i went to the shop from where i purchased it and they said that you need to change your power supply, currently its 230watt, i was thinking that i should replace my card with another one as mine does not have a six pin supplementary power connector. so my question is that should i change my psu first or should i switch my card first?

A:Should i change my power supply or should i change my graphics card?

Change the key used to wake up your machine in the system BIOS setup. You often have a choice of space-bar or mouse-click, but choosing space-bar on my machine allows any key to work. Look under "Wake on..." settings.

Or, give details of your machine if you are unable to find it.

Hi all,

I installed BSPlayer, didn't like it, and decided to go back to using Divx player.
I have all the file associations sorted so all my video files run in Divx again, but the icons are still the same as they were for the BSPlayer.

I know its not a really big problem, but its annoying!!

Any help?

Hi. When I start up my computer,it says "protected by Avast".Its possible that this was there after I first instaled avast a few days after buying and using my computer.This computer had nortons internet security 2012 ipre installed when I bought it in June 2012.

I added these after I bought it:
1))avg free standalone linkscanner
2)avast free anti virus.

I let nortons run out then installed zonealarm free firewall antivirus.
I also had to uninstall avast back then too.

I decided that I wanted to go back to Nortons/avg linkscanner/avast so I uninstalled zonealarm (even though it was quite good-just preferred nortons)then installed nortons then avg linkscanner and tried to reinstall avast.I just left it with nortons and avast.

Can someone give me step by step instructions to remove "protected by avast"?


Have a Merry Christmas!

A:Change the message on start up.How do you change it?

Welcome to Seven Forums Danv12. You should run only one AV program at a time, either Avast or Norton. Use the removal tool for whichever you do not use:

Norton Removal Tool

Avast! Uninstall Utility

To disable the Avast message at boot:

Open Avast> Click on Settings at top right> Basic tab> Appearance> Uncheck Show welcome message on Windows boot screen (Windows 7 only)> OK

That should do it

I don't really understand what makes WPA so much better - but clearly based on the threads in here it is. My question is - is it necessary to routinely change the passkey if you have WPA enabled? It isn't much trouble to change it but if there is a feature in WPA that makes this unnessesary I won't bother. Thanks for your help. Great forum!!

Not really. As long as you have a good key, letters and numbers, the more the better, you're quite secure. Obviously, it's never a bad idea to occasionally change the key or password for any secured resource.

I'm running Windows 7 HP 64 bit and I have IE 9 installed. I think the IE 9 version is the 32 bit one because the executable is iexplore.exe *32 I am having some problems with IE9 at present - the task hangs around after I close the window and prevents me clicking on anything on the desktop until I cancel the various iexplore.exe taks via task manager. However each time I go to the Windows site to download the 64 bit version and execute the file I get a message saying it will not install because I am running a later version of IE9. When I compare the versions of what I have and what I am trying to get they are the same, although I believe I am running the 32 bit version (the About help gives no indication I am running 64 bit). Can anyone tell me whether I am running the 64 bit version, and if not how I can install it please?
