ThinkPad T43 ATI X300 video-driver for Win98

#1 Post by jinfeixibi888 » Tue May 02, 2017 9:35 am

Hello everyone

I come from China, my English is not very good, I do not know if you can understand what I say. I am now in Beijing, in China to visit this site is really bad. The website often does not open, I spent 2 hours to register account. It's a hard work。
I have a IBM T43, I want to give him a Win98, but I can not install video driver, prompted not find any driver, or use the standard VGA video driver. I saw someone on this site have mentioned a similar problem, I do not know if they have not solved,Because I don't quite understand what they mean.

At the forum in China, there is no way to solve this problem, so I went to the United States forum for help. Chinese netizens have said that T43 does not support Win98, but T42 can support. I believe there will be someone else to solve this problem, so I ask you for help. It's 22:31 in Beijing on May 2, 2017.

I would like to install a Win98 video driver on T43, please.

Welcome to the Forum.
T43 is too new to run W98, there are just no drivers for that OS.
But have you seen/tried this? viewtopic.php?p=771134#p771134

YES.But there are some sentences I can't understand, my question is the same as him. I am a Chinese, not very understand grammar, know the word is not much, so many sentences do not understand.

Firstly, exactly what model is your T43?

1. Is it T43 with discrete GPU (ie: ATI Mobility RADEON)?

2. Is it T43 with no discrete GPU? (ie: Just Intel Intel 910GML, 915GM)?

Hope this helps!

Thank you for your help, but the above URL can not solve the problem. Maybe T43 installation 98 is not a good choice
