Video Seven provides the following Microsoft Windows version 3.0 drivers for the Video Seven V-RAM VGA and VGA 1024i: Filename Video Resolution ------------- ------------------------- V754016.DRV 720 x 540 16 color V760016.DRV 800 x 600 16 color V776816.DRV 1024 x 768 16 color (requires 512K) V7512256.DRV 720 x 512 256 color (V-RAM VGA 512K only) The Windows 3.0 package contains a 640 x 480 16-color and 256-color driver for the Video Seven VGA card. The example below shows how to install the 800 x 600 16-color driver. You can install a different resolution driver by substituting the driver filename for the resolution you want to install. You should already have Windows 3.0 installed, using the Video Seven driver supplied with Windows (640 x 480 with 256 colors). 1. Copy the V760016.DRV file from the floppy disk to the \SYSTEM subdirectory under the directory where you have installed Windows 3.0 (for example, WIN3\SYSTEM\). 2. Using a text editor (such as the Notepad from within Windows), change the DISPLAY.DRV line of the SYSTEM.INI from DISPLAY.DRV=V7VGA.DRV to DISPLAY.DRV=V760016.DRV. 3. Check that the following lines appear in the [Boot] section of the SYSTEM.INI file: 386GRABBER=V7VGA.GR3 (386 machines only) and 286GRABBER=VGACOLOR.GR2. NOTE: If you have installed Windows for standard VGA you do not have the file V7VGA.GR3 in your Windows directory. This file is compressed and must be expanded off the original disks. The file V7VGA.GR3 is on Windows Disk 4 on 5.25" media or Windows Disk 5 on 3.5" media. Or simply install Windows for Video Seven with 512K. 4. Save the SYSTEM.INI file. Restart Windows from the MS-DOS prompt. You are now in the 800 x 600 resolution mode. You can repeat the above steps to change resolutions at any time. If you do not have Windows 3.0 installed, do the following: 1. Install Windows 3.00 and select "Video Seven VGA with 512K" or "VGA" depending on your memory configuration, as the display option. 2. Follow steps 1-4 above to change resolution.
