TNT2 is nVidia

Driver Version 77.xx should be what you need

If not i'd suggest looking to see if you have an AGP or PCI port for graphics (you will have PCI slots, but having an AGP slot is much butter) and just going out and buying a $20-$50 card such as a Radeon 9200, GeForce FX 5200 or Volari V5

not so much because your trying to get more performance, but just to get something that is more recent/easier to find drivers that will work with

I've had all sorts of issues with nVidia and drivers for old cards from the Riva/TNT days

This would even do fine

If you can confirm having an AGP slot however, you would be able to get some more powerful cards, but given that your using a TNT2, 3D power probably isn't your goal
