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 WindowsÒ 2000, Windows 98/95 and Windows
        NTÒ 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.
Lisa
