I think the driver 82.69 isn't 100% compatible with G71 / G72 chips. Maybe you can find something about GF 7300 here on Msfn board 9x/ME, if you search. I've a 7900GS (G71) and yes there is a black screen on ME start for a second that doesn't really bother me. This doesn't happen with the G70.

I can recommend you the VBEMP 9x video display driver and does support Windows 9x: https://bearwindows.zcm.com.au/vbe9x.htm
It use it on my notebook.

Hi @Joaquim,

I was curious about when, or what happens, that causes your black screen.

I remember some time ago, you had tried using the s-video out of your laptop. The issue back then was that the s-video out did not support the graphics mode attempted (a Dos or a DirectX game [can't remember which it was]). It was a documented limit, even with the right drivers (a win9x limit, if I remember correct). It has been a while, but I think it was that s-video did not support DirectX. Maybe also that some Dos games were picky about fullscreen output, over s-video.

Is this something similar; does it involve a fullscreen command prompt or the s-video out?
