Windows 2000 Information
The most recent Windows 2000 releases contain drivers for almost all Number Nine Products. Until Windows 2000 is officially released by Microsoft, Number Nine cannot offer support for any BETA release of the Windows 2000 operating system.
Please contact Microsoft for any issues related to Windows 2000.
Consult the list below to see which Number Nine boards are supported by Windows 2000 :
After physically installing the Number Nine Video adapter: Start your Windows 2000 machine and log on to the system (make sure that you are logging in with administrative rights).
Windows 2000 should detect the new card installed. Once it has detected the card the New Hardware Wizard will start. To continue, click next.
Windows 2000 will prompt you that the wizard will complete the installation for this device (your card should be specified below this).
Next the wizard asks what you would like to do:
Select : Display a list of all the drivers in a specific location.
You should now be at the "Select a device driver" window.
Select Show all hardware of this device class.
You should now have a manufactures and models window. In the manufactures window select "Number Nine Visual Technologies."
In the models window select "Number Nine Visual Technologies (your card)."
The wizard will say it is ready to install the following hardware and state the model you have selected. Click next.
The wizard will let you know that the hardware wizard has finished installing the hardware and prompts you to click finish.
Click finish and restart your computer.
Your windows 2000 should now be configured for your adapter.
Changing Your Resolution
To change the resolution or refresh rates, once your computer is configured for your adapter, bring up your display properties (Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display).
Select the Settings tab.
From the setting tab screen you can select you desired resolution (Screen Area) and Color Depth (Colors). Your refresh rate will be predetermined and set for you.
If you wish to be more specific and select your refresh rate as well, click on the "Advanced" button and then the "Adapter" tab. You can now select "List All Modes", make your selection and "Apply" it.
When selecting a new resolution, refresh rate, or color depth, windows will always test what you have selected. If you do not see any thing on your screen or your screen is garbled making a selection, wait 15 seconds and Windows 2000 will change back to your original settings.
