    Which drivers are you using? For laptops you should only use the drivers from the laptop manufacturer not the ones from ATI.

    Thank you for your reply

    Yes I have installed the driver from the manufactures Drivers cd It installs the correct one recognising the OS as win2K. But when it comes to rebooting its just crasing and every thing goes blank no respond to key board but I can restart in SAFE MODE and disable the disply from Hardware devices then it reverts to basic VGA mode ang i can boot as normal but the display stays at 600X400.

    Are you dual booting with XP? Did you install the chipset drivers when you installed 2000?

    Just download the newest motherboard drivers for 2000 and install them within 2000.
