Hi Webstix,

I found in many forums that there are people like you who have the
same problem. There is no driver release for Win XP for your Trident
Blade 3D graphics card. However, you can use the driver for Win2K. It
is compatible with WinXP.

You can download the compatible driver from the following links:

Video-107AGP for Windows 2000

If it has a TV feature (TV in or out) you may download this driver:

Video-107AGP&TV for Windows 2000

You can find the whole driver page by clicking on the link below:

Jaton Corporation
Driver Dowload

Here's another driver download site for your card. You may right-click
on the link and choose "Save Target As..." if you are using Internet

Trident Blade 3D (9880) for Windows 2000
Driver Version V5.00.2195.0053

You can find the whole driver page by clicking on the link below:

Hightech Information System Ltd.

Thanks for all the links. One site was down for a few days, but I got
it. It turns out, it may not be a driver issue - the error I get is
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Thanks for the perfect five. Regarding your new problem, I suggest you
uninstall the previous driver first before installing the XP driver
you downloaded. I hope this helps.

Good idea, but I think I've found that I can't run a dual monitor
system with an on-board video card plus another PCI card. It sounds
like I need a dual monitor card or else another PCI or AGP card.

I suggest you get a new card. It will save you from other headaches
and the driver is readily available. Just make sure that the vidcard
you're going to get is compatible with your system, particularly your
mobo. A high-end vidcard may not function properly and could cause
additional problems on old mobos. Upgrading your BIOS is also a good
