Help!!! I was trying to install warcraftIII on an IBM 300pl. 600mhz 64m ram, with an s3 onboard video and it installed ok. When I tried to play the single user game it went thru the intro fine but when the actual menu screen came up the words where all smashed together and the scenery looked like a puzzle with the pieces kinda rearranged and any key on the keyboard or mouse wouldn't respond. So, I ran the direct x7.1 diagnostic and it said that my direct3d driver was not signed and i would need to update my driver. I got the downloads on updating it but when I try to update driver in windows 98 it says that I am already using the best driver. What am I doing wrong. I'm about ready to stick my foot thru the screen. Does anyone know whether there is any hope for my situation or can I disable the s3 onboard and put another video card in the pc. Or am I just too stupid to install the driver. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

You could EASILY disable the onboard in the BIOS and slip in another card, but first, why don't you try installing DirectX nine?
disable the S3 video from BIOS OR control panel/system/device manager, click on S3 Video and choose DISABLE. but make sure your using the other video card before u disable that from control panel.
