Upon downloading and installing the driver it is possible to determine the display driver release number by starting the Display Applet in the Control Panel folder. Select the option that's given for 'Advanced...', and then select the '3Dlabs' tab and select the 'Information' option. The Display Driver as well as the OpenGL version numbers can be found under the Software section. The last four digits coming after the closed quotation marks are the driver build's unique identifiers. For users of Windows 2000 they will require a device driver for each PCI device on the Adapter while the GMX2000 contains four such devices namely a VGA chip (the P2VGA), a Gamma geometry accelerator chip as well as two GLiNT MX rasterizer chips. The GMX2000 driver is installed for the P2VGA device, while the remaining three devices are each installed as coprocessors and use the multi-fun driver which simply acts as a placeholder for its device.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The drivers for the Leadtek WinFast 3D L2300 are available from their website. The L2300's biggest advantage is that it utilizes the work station class PERMEDIA 2 chip for excellent 3D acceleration and MPEG-2 video acceleration. Secondly, this card also supports DVD playback and provides a VMI connector for multimedia extension.¬† The Leadtek WinFast 3D L2300 (PCI) also brings high quality SGRAMs of 100 megahertz and is designed to accelerate 3D presentation, animation, authoring, computer aided design applications and three dimensional graphics providing a variety of 3D features and very good picture quality. While most manufacturers of accelerators, when designing a two and three dimension combo card, do not provide a sensible balance between the two accelerations of the card, Leadtek have created a video card that excels in this. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Leadtek WinFast 3D L2300 (PCI) errors before installing any driver updates.
