Default Anybody have a driver support GF4 420 go(32M)?

I buy a laptop with GF4 go, but didn't have a driver in Win98. I've tried D-Force driver. But no use, it can support GF4 440, but can't support my card.

Who can help me?

Default Dude, nVIDIA says;

Please consult your notebook's manufacturer for the latest driver.

You mean each vendor will develop their own Nvdia driver? I don't think so. GF4 420 driver will fit for any brand of laptop with GF4 420.

My laptop is bought in China. Legend V80 , GF4 420 go.

Actually, that's the way the notebook world works...
nVidia does not release generic drivers for the GeForce Go's...
The D-Force drivers are modded desktop drivers to work with (most) notebooks.
Each manufacturer is supposed to support it's own nV chipset...

Oops, nevermind, I see you have Win 98. Sorry, I don't think you're going to find any drivers for that OS except from your laptop maker. Upgrade to Windows 2000 then you can experience the full goodness of D-Force.

Update: I checked both Dell's and Toshiba's support pages and neither of them have any NVIDIA drivers available for Windows 9x - only 2000/XP. Also, if you download the standard NVIDIA reference driver you won't see any information listed for any NV mobile chip.

It seems so. Only GF2 Go's have Win9x drivers (I think) such as the one in my Dell Inspiron 4100.

Angry 98 Games

I have a lot of games have to run under Win98. I need it.
And D-force is an modify driver for laptop. They modify them from source code or binary code? If from a source code, I think that's easy to support Gf4 420 as well as Gf4 440, if 440 also have 32M version.

Red face What's your meaning?

I can't find a driver support 420 in 9x, isn't it? I mean if anybody give me a 2000/xp version source code. I can make it work under 9x.

LOL, ain't no way you're going to be able to NVIDIA source code in any way, shape or form. And Azreal has no plans to release a Win 9x driver because the registry and other things are vastly different between it and 2k/XP.

Sorry, I think you're out of luck on this.
