Default No display driver works after upgrading from Win95

Hello, I upgraded an old (~12 year old) Micron Millennia Transport from Win95
to Win98. According to the system documentation, it has a 800x600 display
with either 256 or 16 million colors, which appeared to work fine before I
upgraded the machine. Now Win98 will only display 640x480x16 colors. I have
tried all the standard display types and laptop display types but no luck.
Micron no longer supports these things, so I can't find whatever the
"correct" driver should be. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...
Jonathan

You might want to try one of the driver websites.

www.driverguide.com is one such site. You need to become a member (which is
free). After you are logged on you can look for a driver for your unit. I
suspect you will find one there that will work for you. I have often found
drivers for older equipment there.

What is the exact model of your Transport? Have you seen this page? Some
real old models are listed there.
