Vic,
 
  Thanks for your help. We uninstalled the old drivers and reinstalled
the new ones.  The game is working now. :-)

Lisa,

First off - these are the latest drivers for nvidia cards -
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_53.03
Secondly the specs for the game say that it needs a minimum of  16 MB on
the card.

About the card itself


The Compaq NVIDIA TNT2 M64 Pro graphics controller has the same 2D/3D
core and RAMDAC as the NVIDIA TNT2. The major difference is that the
memory bus bandwidth of the M64 Pro controller has been reduced to 64
bits, which restricts performance at higher resolution and color depth
but reduces the cost considerably. Hence, the Compaq NVIDIA TNT2 M64 Pro
controller delivers exceptional price/performance value and visual
quality for mainstream PC-based applications used by small and medium
business PC users.
The 211081-B21 and 216080-B21 option kits include the graphics
controller, a CD with Windows* 2000, Windows 98/95 and Windows NT*
drivers, a read-this-first card and Compaq warranty statement.

Performance

The NVIDIA TNT2 M64 Pro processor uses the same drivers as the TNT2 and
is built with the same 0.22 micron process. The 32-MB frame buffer,
32-bit color pipeline, and 32-bit Z/stencil buffer deliver excellent
quality and performance, and its internal TwiN Texel architecture is one
of the fastest 128-bit 3D processors on the market today, delivering 2
pixels-per-clock cycle and single-pass multi-texturing.
On a 600-MHz Pentium III 2D, the TNT2 M64 Pro controller delivers 265
fps 2D Winbench 99 (business), 684 fps 3D Winbench 99 (16 bpp) and 36.4
fps 3D Winbench 2000 (16 bpp).

Quality and Compatibility

Compaq has a solid reputation for delivering high-quality, reliable
enhancement products. Compaq enhancement products are designed and
tested to rigorous specifications, including tough qualification
requirements for suppliers, stringent performance specifications, and a
thorough testing process to ensure consistent quality from prototype to
production.


Which means that it should be okay.
I'd say get the nvidia drivers, then uninstall the current drivers,
reboot and reinstall, reboot again and see what happens

Ok, I got one for ya.  Chuck's friend at work is trying to install a
game.  The game is Combat Flight Simulator 3.  He said that every time
he tries to install it, it says that the video card drivers are not
compatible with the game.  He's running Windows 98SE, and the video card
is nVidia TNT 2M64 (DELL) 4.12.1.634   We updated the drivers from
driverguide.com and still the same message comes up.  I don't remember
the rest of the specs (Chuck called me from the guys house and I found
the drivers - unless they're the wrong ones).  I know he had enough hard
drive space, ram, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks.
