Default onboard video not detected

Hi~ First time posting here

Here's a problem I have.
Reinstalled XP and it doesn't detect the onboard (VGA compatible) video.
I know have 640X480 and Color quality is 4bit. Wohooo!!
In device manager as "other device" with yellow question mark.
It's a *Legend Computer* > nothing on their website!
Winbond Motherboard > no luck here either.
At this point i'd be happy with any driver that would work.
M VGA Compatible driver. Shouldn't be this hard to find??
Anyone know of a driver that is most likely to work?
A "M VGA Compatible driver"!!

same thing happened to this comp im using right now

1.) find the manufacturer and model (exact) of your motherboard (google up everest home edition if u can't)
2.) go to manufactuere's website (for me it was ECS) and find the exact model of ur mobo under the download driver (or jus download) section
3.) look for VGA drivers for ur mobo and dl it



I don\'t play for fun, I play to win and winning is fun.

Gaah how old is that thing?

I am guessing it's too old for XP to care about supporting, since it probolly doesnt even meet the XP mimimum system requirements

He said the website has nothing of that sort.

Anyways, there is another website that's nothing but drivers and has a search, but I can't recall the name of the site now, it's mentioned often in these forums though, do some browsing and you may find it.
